Many companies are offering products sweetened with fruit juice. Sugar-free jams and jellies turn out to be just as tasty, if not more so, than those packed with sugar. You’ll find them next to each other at your grocer’s, right next to peanut butter, which also comes in sugar-free varieties.
While you’re noticing these items, take a walk through your store’s Special Diets or Health Foods section. If it’s well-stocked, you’ll find items perfect for any weight-loss regimen, from tasty cookies sweetened with fruit juice to soups and sauces low in sodium.
Watch your intake of fruit juice by the glass, though. They contain a lot of concentrated calories, relatively speaking, of course. An orange has 6. 5 calories; a cup of orange juice can have over 100! A tasty way to enjoy juice with fewer calories is to mix it with an equal portion of plain seltzer.
