When I started I read all about the rule vs recommendations and thought I understood them. Well, today I decided to drink some 100% Naked Juice. Then I got on the forum to read more about it and am getting very mixed answers. Technically, would I still be compliant and therefore not have to start over??? (I won't do it again- promise! I read this on the rules: Fruit Juice: Yes. Fruit juice is the only acceptable added sweetener on the Whole30. (We had to draw the line somewhere.) Use it to flavor sauces, soups, or entrees.Tip: While drinking a glass of fruit juice may be technically compliant, we really wouldn’t recommend it, even if you juice it yourself. Juicing strips many of the nutrients out of the fruit, but still leaves all of the sugar. We’d much rather you just eat the fruit.
lackyannie posted a topic in Can I have ___?New to the program! Day 4 here. I am getting insanely confused about why I can have trader joe's canned coconut milk that has 2g of sugar in it, but I cannot have trader joe's coconut milk that has 0 sugar in it. (This information is coming from google searches that pulled up these forums). I'm also confused why at the same time I CAN have coconut water that has 20g of sugar (or can I actually NOT have that and I'm just reading labels/rules wrong? The brand I have is called Thirsty Buddha, which turned up no results on this forum when searched for.) Is it because that is the natural sugar and it would be LIKE eating the coconut, essentially? When the "can I have" list states fruit juice - what do they mean? I can go out and buy orange juice and put it in a recipe - or I can juice my own orange and have it that way? Is there such thing as a fruit juice that has NO added sugar (or in other words, is there fruit juice that is whole 30 approved?!) I tried for 2 days to research this on my own and I just can't figure it out. I just hear contradictory things, or maybe I'm interpreting the information wrong! please clarify! -Lacey
Would like some guidance on the following: I read in the "Can I have…?" forum a suggestion made about adding some fruit juice to your sparkling water as a way to create a tasty alternative to drinking just plain water all day. However, I'm trying to avoid those blood sugar/ insulin spikes that I understand come with the naturally occurring sugar in fruit. So… Is adding 1-2 ounces of a pure tart cherry or cranberry juice, for example, acceptable as a between-meal beverage?? Thanks! Almost completed 2 weeks….
