myth: swapping soda for juice saves on sugar

Truth: No one would argue that cutting back on soda is a good thing, but guzzling juice isn’t necessarily an improvement — a can of cola has about the same amount of sugar as a cup of unsweetened apple and orange juices. “While 100-percent fruit juice contains many good-for-you nutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, drinking too much juice can expand your waistline as the calories add up quickly,” says Retelny. Drink no more than 8 ounces (1 cup) of 100-percent fruit juice a day. (Dilute your favorite unsweetened juice with water or seltzer to stretch that cup). “Skip ‘juice drinks’ as they are nothing but empty calories in disguise.”
