Fruit Smoothies Are Not That Healthy
Fruit Smoothies & fruit in general, are just sugar. They're nothing special.
Were told by health officials to eat lots of fruit because it's "healthy".  Consequently, we think fruit smoothies are the perfect health drink.

Many products are deceiving because they advertise words like "natural" & "loaded with antioxidants".  However, what they're not telling you is exactly what you need to know about ...

Fruit Smoothies Are Loaded With Sugar

Picture
This article quickly turns into a brief explanation as to why sugar isn't healthy for you, and I'm assuming that's something most of you already know. 

Fruit smoothies are nothing but straight sugar.


One of the main reasons why I wanted to write this post is because you see all these health & fitness accounts on Instagram, sharing "healthy" fruit smoothie recipes & other similar products, but there is nothing healthy about them.



Picture
Picture
Picture
Sure, there are definitely some vitamins and antioxidants in your smoothie drink, but the effects that the sugar has on your body outweighs that, by a lot.

This is the same reason why fruit isn't as healthy as society claims it to be, because it's just sugar.

One can only imagine why the government tells us to eat a diet high in grains, fruits and vegetables (carbohydrates).  They instruct us to go on a low fat diet, but we have no evidence to suggest that a low fat diet is healthy or even safe.
(1)

Just take a look at the sugar content of these "healthy" drinks compared to other sugary drinks:

coca cola
12 oz can of coca cola has 40 grams of sugar.

Whole Foods
A 32 oz "Just Beet It" smoothie from Whole Foods contains 60 grams of sugar.

Sugar
12 oz of apple juice contains 39 grams of sugar.

Picture
Just 16 oz of mountain dew contains 61 grams of sugar.

Sugar Is Sugar

A common argument that people try to bring up in an attempt to defend their fruit, is that the sugar from it is much healthier than the sugar found in something like soda, or a snickers bar.

If you know how the body works, or you have read my previous article on carbohydrates, you know that the body doesn't care what type of sugar you are ingesting. 

Whether your ingesting the fructose sugar from fruit, the polysaccharides from potatoes, or the high-fructose corn syrup from soda & candy, your pancreas must produce a hormone called insulin - which is responsible for clearing that sugar from your bloodstream, storing calories, and creating new fat tissue. (2)

Should I Avoid Fruit Smoothies & Fruit Altogether?

Fruit & Fruit Smoothies are only healthy sometimes.
Eating fruit for overall health depends.
Fruit & fruit smoothies are just carbohydrates.  So should you avoid carbohydrates, is the real question?

The answer is, it depends.

If you're an overall healthy individual, then carbohydrates are fine up until a certain amount.  Someone who is a weight lifter will need more carbohydrates in their diet
to fuel their active lifestyle.

Contrary, someone who is type II diabetic, or has more than 10 lbs to lose would have to be very careful in how they implement carbohydrates into their diet.  If you are one of those people (or just want to be healthy), my carbohydrates article will help you make that decision easier.


If you are healthy enough to eat carbohydrates, then having your fruit and/or smoothies would be best had at night time, for optimal fat loss and performance.


The reason for eating your carbohydrates at night, is in the way our natural fat burning hormones rise and fall throughout the day, which is another reason why I never recommend carbohydrates for breakfast.


That's right; oatmeal, fruit bowls, fruit smoothies, toast, and OJ for breakfast will alter the way your body burns and mobilizes fat for the rest of the day. (3)


A Healthy Alternative

Healthy Smoothie
A healthy alternative to a high sugared smoothie.
Lets be clear:  If you are healthy enough to eat carbohydrates, you don't need to give up your sugary fruit smoothie, just drink it at night.  Maybe for dessert?

I'll leave that for you to decide.  If you're looking for something tasty & low carb that you can have during the day, I've got you covered.

Chocolate Vanilla & Coconut Cream Shake

Remember:
nothing can replace a diet with whole foods

This shake is perfect for anytime of the day.  It's low enough in carbs to have for breakfast if you are in a hurry, and is the perfect snack or treat to have during the day if your craving something tasty.

Recipe:

(I recommend this protein powder from Reserveage.  It is the best tasting protein powder I have ever come across.  Not only that, but it is low in carbs, and it comes from grass fed cows.)
  • 12 oz of Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk
  • 4-5 Tablespoons of Heavy Cream
Optional - Add brewed coffee

I followed low carb high fat for around five years - just all natural low carbohydrate unprocessed food, plus coconut oil and butter, lard etc.

I loved it, but not only did I gain weight rather than lose it, my insulin resistance got worse. I tried playing around with the ratios to no avail.

I had incorporated more vegetables in the end, which helped with the constipation on LCHF, but rarely, if ever had fruit. I was always 'scared' of fruit, first due to obesity, then diabetes, and rarely ate it, so fruit was never the cause of my diabetes, but recently I came across a surprising reference to a high fruit diet reversing diabetes.

Having tried most other things I felt I had nothing to lose by trying, so launched into a fruit and green veg diet with some intrepidation. Within days, my fasting BG had dropped from over 10mmol most mornings, to just above normal range and I had to reduce my insulin. I was gobsmacked.

Fruit is always lumped in with other sugary foods, but it is not your average confectionary. It is whole food, full of antioxidants, nutrients, enzymes, and goodness. It is very detoxing.

In the past, people would often fast, or eat fruit to cleanse their bodies, yet in these days of toxic bombardment, when we ought to be doing it even more often, few people ever give their bodies a rest from the constant stodge consumption.

That kind of begs the question, do regimes like the Newcastle diet reverse diabetes because of the low calories - or because it is effectively a kind of fast that helps rid their bodies of toxins that are clogging up their ability to process sugars properly?

I don't intend doing this indefinitely, but am applying the high raw fruit regime in an attempt to cleanse and heal my body. And yes, as long as you are ONLY eating fruit and vegetables, you can lose weight. Just having an odd smoothie is not going to make much difference, and combined with other foods is definitely more likely to raise blood sugar, but as I have found, fruit is not the enemy it's made out to be.....

Fruit is one of the best things for us because they are packed with vitamins that are natural and easy for our body to process.

Thanks for the great information. Like a lot of people with hypothyroidism, raw cruciferous vegetables like kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower were not the best choice for me. What helped me out was to cook the greens instead. This helps reduce the goitrogens that can disrupt the thyroid if consumed in large quantities. Here's a helpful video that also helped me get my hypothyroidism under control: http://bit.ly/1Ooh9JA
