The Downside of

Fruit Juice

The Downside of Fruit Juice.

I wish I knew this years ago.

Drink orange juice, it’s full of vitamin C and will give you the boost you need to get going in the morning.
This was what I lived by for a majority of my life!

I also lived with fatigue, and crashing energy throughout my day.

Are the two connected?

Let me give you a brief understanding of sugar and how the body absorbs it.

Sugar, when paired with fiber (such as the fiber from the flesh and skin of fruit) will bind with the fiber and will move slowly through the digestive system. And the sugar will slowly be released into the blood stream.

Sugar, when removed from fiber, in this case, sugar from the juice in oranges, and fiber being the flesh of the orange, gets absorbed into the blood stream rapidly.

This rapid absorption into the blood stream makes you have a blood sugar spike!

This blood sugar spike will leave you to crash soon after. This could be felt by way of fatigue, weakness, “afternoon crash” and even headaches.

But it’s orange juice, it has to be healthy!

Remember this! SUGAR IS SUGAR.

Sugar as in cane sugar, or sugar as in fruit sugar, for the most part, it will cause a spike and crash.

This does not mean you should opt for a candy bar with added sugar, over orange juice (LOL) nice try.

I changed my life by changing what I ate. For years I struggled with fatigue, joint pain, heart palpitations, acid reflux, and this list goes on...

Doctors either recommended medications, or they told me they had no idea what was causing my complaints.

Little by little, I became fed up with the "system." Little by little I decided it didn't have to be this way, I was young, I exercised, I should not have these health problems. I began to do research of my own, learning slowly but surely the changes I could make to get some relief. And eventually I came to what is now my Eat Smart System, and had my own REAL results.

It was a long journey for me, and now I want to share it all with YOU! If you are struggling with stubborn weight, fatigue, or just feeling lousy, Eat Smart can help!
