With all the contradictory health claims floating around online, it can be hard to know what to believe. The "Food Guys" set the record straight about fruit juice as a "healthy" option, and make the case for avoiding it altogether.

"Fruit juice kind of crept into our culture so that after a while we didn't give a thought to it, and it's seen as something healthy," says Jon Jackson.

"If you want to have orange, eat the fruit," Greg Patent advises. "You get so much more with the fruit than you do with the juice. You get a ton of nutrition; you get vitamins, minerals; you get fiber. Wheras when you're drinking the juice, you are going to get a sugar spike."
