Recommendations for healthy eating plan Saturday, January 24, 2015

If you’ve started a healthy eating plan this January then remember that fruit juice isn’t the same as intact fruit and it that it has as much sugar as many popular sugar-drinks. It is also absorbed very fast, so by the time it gets to your stomach your body doesn’t know whether it’s Coca-Cola or orange juice! So …..the recommendation now is to swap it and have a piece of the real fruit. Either way, speaking as a dentist rather than a nutritionalist, it’s worth remembering that the acid softens the top layer of your teeth, so wait 30 mins before brushing, otherwise you will brush off that top white layer, cause abrasion, erosion and yellowing of you teeth by exposing the underlying dentine!
