In brief: Be wary

Most fruit juices are just sugary beverages, providing extra calories — all from refined carbohydrates — without sating appetite.
And this is true whether you drink apple or orange juice or one of the fancy new juices like acai berry or pomegranate juice. The added calories can contribute to weight gain and increased risk of both diabetes and heart disease.
