15 Sugary Drinks That are (Almost) as Bad for You as Soda

You’d think juice would be healthy—it’s made from fruit, after all. Problem is, while fruit is rich in fiber, juice is not. So even if you opt for 100% fruit juice and avoid drinks with added sugar (like cranberry or grape cocktail), they’re still high in the sweet stuff. For instance, a cup of grape juice contains 36 grams of sugar and a cup of apple has 31 grams—not far off from what you’ll find in a can of lemon-lime soda, which racks up 44 grams.


Make over your drink: “I don’t recommend juice ever, even 100% fruit juice,” says Ilyse Schapiro, RD, author of Should I Scoop Out My Bagel? ($11; amazon.com). “You’ll feel much more full from eating the fruit, which has fiber, versus drinking the juice,” she says.
