Hey! You guys, have you ever seen that Dave Chappelle Comedy Special where is like, what the f is juice? I want some grape drink, baby! It's kind of like a famous like routine where he is talking about difference between you know grape juice and grape drink. He is like I don't them vitamins and minerals and stuff. He just want his primary ingredients. Sugar, water, purple. Right. Okay. Thats grape drink. Now we will find out what juice really is right now, because we we have been incredibly misinformed about this. They got us believe in and they even have me believed me in a college that a serving of juice is the same as a serving of whole fruit. It's so wrong. So we've got these parents and stuff out there buying these little juice boxes full of sugar for their kids, thinking they are actually getting some nutrition out of them, and they are just not. Give them the whole fruit. Alright. Now what's the difference here? You look at a whole fruit. They got fiber. Fiber usually in skin. I don't see any skin floating around in my juice. Fiber is good for you. You got vitamins, you got minerals, you got vital nutrients, you got all kinds of cool stuff from that. You got sugar. I get a lot of people who say, I don't want the fruit as it got sugar in it. Yes, it got sugar. It's not refined sugar. In that sugar, when you eat comes along with some vitamins and minerals and those things help your body to digest, assimilate and use that sugar in the proper way. When you refine sugar and you take all the vitamins and a minerals and all the stuff out of it, then your body has to pull from its reserves, its nutrients stores in order to digest and use that refined sugar. So actually taking more from your body than you are actually putting into it when you eat refined sugar in any form candy, table sugar, juice as well. So you have got this whole fruit well. It's got stuff in it. Then you juice it. Now what happens is you lose an incredible amount of nutrition. First of all I've got say, you don't have any more fiber. Secondly, typically they pasteurize the juice. If you make your own juice at home, that's fine. Because it's not pasteurized, there are still some nutrients in there. You just have to make sure you drink it immediately. But like box drinks and juices like this here, that done pasteurized. So when you pasteurize, it is just like milk. They kill all the vitamins. They kill the minerals. They kill the enzymes. Everything that had life within that fruit is now gone. And what you are left with is sugar water. It's really not much different than soda. It is not much different than Gatorade. It is just strictly sugar water that is in the going to cause your body to take more nutritions from itself in order to use the sugar in the juice. Now check this out. I got my roommate's Cranberry juice right here. It's not my favorite juice, and if I look at the ingredients. It has got filtered water, some cranberry juice. Doesn't tell me how much cranberry juice is in there. Sugar and ascorbic acid. Now when I got to total carbohydrates here. It says 27 grams. Of those 27 grams, 26 grams are from sugar. That is in the 8 ounce cup. So keep this in mind. Four grams of sugar equals one teaspoon. So if I pour myself a 8 ounce glass of this juice then I am getting myself 6.5 teaspoons of pure sugar. Now usually people end up pouring themselves 16 ounce glass to 20 ounce glass. So I mean you are getting upwards of 12 to 15 teaspoons of sugar and if you have time got to cabinet, pull out some sugar. Grab a little teaspoon thing and start pouring out teaspoon to see exactly how much sugar that is. You will be absolutely amazed by that. But anyway, try to stay away from the juice. Specially, if you have a blood sugar problems. The only time I like to have juice is right after a workout, because my cortisol levels are really high which is like a muscle like degrading a hormone and in order to bring it down you have to get your insulin levels up. So I d
