Fruit Juice & Obesity
Good old Jack LaLanne was right.
Referencing a survey of over 14,000 U.S. adults, researchers were able to determine that people who drink 100% fruit juiceÂ have…
- lower BMI measurements,
- lower waist circumferences,
- and lower levels of insulin resistance
…than non-drinkers of 100% fruit juice.
Does this mean that drinking 100% pure fruit juice will make you leaner & healthier?
A glass of freshly squeezed OJ isn’t going to counteract 8 straight hours of sitting on your butt playingÂ XboxÂ while inhaling nachos & chugging light beers.
What it does mean is that people who drink 100% fruit juice are probably living a lifestyle that is healthier than the average non fruit juice drinker. And this healthier lifestyle results in leaner, healthier and sexier bodies.
The fruit juice is just one part of a healthy lifestyle.
Either way, old Jack was right.

Anyway you can get in you fruit and vegetable intake will benefit you over not having any at all.
All I can say is that I love my Juiceman juicer, and it has encouraged me not only to get creative with my juice combos (carrot/parsley is my favorite!) but also lowers my cravings for junk and reminds me to keep healthy in other ways. Since I already have good momentum with juicing, why not, right?
What about drinking diluted juice and not 100% fruit juice? Does it have same effect, as that of 100% juice?
