How bad is fruit juice? I love Ocean Spray's Cran-Grape, but there's 40 grams of sugar and 160 calories per cup. Not worth it?

Well that is a lot of calories and the high GI carb will not help much with appetite control either. Might also want to watch the fructose content if you drink more than a few glasses per day, but overall calories would be the main problem.

You would be much better off eating whole fruit instead of the product mentioned above.
