While soda offers no nutritional value, you may be surprised to learn that most fruit drinks are as bad, or possibly worse for your health than drinking soda. In fact, some fruit drinks pack more sugar per serving that a can of coke that has roughly 10 teaspoons of sugar!
When I first realized drinking 12 ounces of orange juice (165 calories, no fiber, added sugar, little real fruit) every morning wasn’t exactly the healthiest breakfast choice, it was a tough pill to swallow. A whole orange on the other hand is only 60 calories with a lot of fiber to help fill you up. It took me months to switch to drinking water and eating whole fruits for breakfast, but I’m glad I did!
