Eat whole fruits first

Eat whole fruits first. Pure fruit juice, though often rich in the same vitamins, minerals and cancer-fighting phytochemicals as the whole fruits they're made from, don't contain fiber. Though you may feel full after snacking on an orange, you probably won't after drinking a glass of orange juice-but you'll end up consuming more calories, because juice condenses a fruit's calories into a small amount. A glass of juice here and there won't hurt-but stick with whole fruits first.
