How To Get Thin Arms-Ditch The Fruit Juice!

By Katherine Crawford M.S.

Do you have a juicer? Do you drink lots of juice? Are you trying to figure out how to get thin arms? Well, juice increases arm fat!

The big companies, however, would have you believe that fruit juice is healthy. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. So please don't buy into all those infomercials promoting juice that will solve all your physical ailments.

But can juice really be that bad, you ask? Well, yes. It's all because of the sugar. The high sugar content of juice causes insulin to rise which completely blocks arm fat burning. There is no way around this.

Still not convinced? Here are 4 more things to consider about fruit juice and slim arms:

1. Your liver doesn't like it. Well, your liver probably doesn't have an opinion but fruit juice can cause your liver to produce more cholesterol and fatty acids. And these two are not good for you.

2. It increases fat stores in the female body. This has been proven by peer reviewed research. And all it takes is a large glass of juice to increase rates of obesity among young people. So please stay away from Jamba Juice.

3. There usually isn't any pulp. Most commercial juice is completely devoid of pulp. And pulp is loaded with fiber, the one thing that could potentially slow digestion and control insulin levels.

4. It's devoid of nutrients. Once the pulp is gone and once the peel is gone, there is little to be gained as far as nutrients go. In fact, the majority of nutrients are concentrated in the pulp and peel.

The bottom line here is that fruit juice will only set you back if you're serious about getting slim and thin arms. Now I understand that some women really like juice. If this is the case with you, all you have to do is minimize the damage. Simply have small servings of juice and include as much pulp as possible. This will slow down the digestion of the sugar and provide many nutrients as well.
