EzyTone Detox You will find that many of the juices bought on the market are actually mostly sugar and water, with just a little of the fruit juice to add color and flavor. The other problem is that the juice, even the real one, is full of calories and has no fiber. So taking the juice is not the same as eating three apples, since the juice does not have the fiber digestion aid when eating the apple. But if you love fruit juice and don't want to stop taking it, just make sure you are taking the real one. Look for 100% fruit juice on the label. Vitamins / Fruit Smoothies Yes, they are full of antioxidants and various portions of fruits. But they are also full of calories and lacking fiber (as fruits lose many of their essential fibers when turned into juice). The other problem with vitamins is that many people take them with meals, which can increase up to 700 calories in the meal. This happens not only because of fruits, but also yogurt and other thickening agents that go to the blender. If you're a fan of vitamins or smoothies, do it yourself so you can control the ingredients by choosing whole whipped fruits instead of juice, skim milk and ice. And remember to think about what you are eating so you can lose weight if you feel like taking a vitamin with a meal or in place of a meal. Isotonic Except for some that are low calorie, most isotonics are loaded with calories and carbohydrates that you have to burn later, when the initial intention to exercise was to end the stored calories and fat. Why do twice the work? In fact, some isotonics have so much sugar that you could be drinking a soda, believe me? Look at the nutrition tables and compare. Of course they have some added nutrients, but the amount is so small that it is useless (even often having names like “immune booster” and “mood enhancer”). Real athletes need extra calories and electrolytes to have energy in marathons and endurance sports. But for those who exercise daily to lose weight, this is not necessary.
