Our expert says:
Fruit juice is indeed healthy, but it contains a lot of sugars (fructose, glucose, etc, derived from fruits). Fruit juice also has a relatively high energy content, for example pear juice 195 kJ/100 ml or apple juice 222 kJ/100 ml, so drinking 330 ml = 644 or 733 kJ which represent 10,2 or 11,6% of your daily energy intake if you are on a 6300 kJ weight reduction diet, which is quite high. Try diluting the fruit juice 50% with ice cubes, water or soda water to reduce the energy content or drink a smaller portion or only have it 3 times a week as you suggest.
