Don’t drink your calories.
Eat fruits & vegetables instead of drinking them. One study compared weight loss with solid produce vs. juice
- Participants in an 8 week study lost an average of 3½ lbs by increasing their intake of solid fruits & vegetables (400-550 calories)
- The “juice” group gained an average of 4-5 lbs.
- Weight loss magic? No, the weight loss group got more satisfaction from the solid produce & ended up cutting back on total calories.
