If you are new to juicing or think juicing is a good way to lose weight, you must read this! Juicing may not be as healthy as you think. Juicing is not about loading the blender with fruits and other sweetened juice drinks, but knowing the right combination of fruits and vegetables to minimize sugar overload. Too much sugar can create internal inflammation, which can lead to other serious illnesses.
The recommended limit of fructose (sugar found in fruit) per day is 25 grams. For example, a cup of store bought orange juice contains 22 grams of sugar, add a medium sized banana (7.1 grams), plus a medium apple (9.5 grams), add all this up in a smoothie and it equals 38.6 grams of sugar, and that is just in one drink!
In addition to discussing fructose toxicity in juicing, we have a section on weaning kids off sugary breakfast cereals because too much sugar increases insulin levels, which can lead to diabetes.
This eBook lists over 35+ fruits and their sugar content, along with a few simple juicing recipes which minimizes sugar content to a safe level.
With the right combination of fruits and vegetables…you will feel confident you are juicing for health!
