Need to know about tart cherry juice please
« on: August 26, 2016, 01:11:00 PM »
Hi everyone! I am going to start my Paleo lifestyle in a week or so. I am currently on a very low carb high fat diet to drop some lbs. I tried a plant based diet with whole grains and veggies little meat and seafood. I was going to eat "healthy" lol.  Problem was i actually gained weight. CRAVED sweets and always felt bloated. I've been eating my current diet for two weeks or so and have dropped 12 lbs and feel great. Anyway my question is about tart cherry juice. I bought it to help relieve arthritis and inflammation in my shoulder. I cannot drink it now obviously, but want to know if there is any harm once i go paleo. It is organic, no sugar added and the ingredients are all juices, main one is cherry juice. One serving is 8 ounces and it contains 27 grams of sugar! The brand is Lakewood Organic. I bought 2 bottles for like $6 bucks each (each bottle 4 servings @ 8 ounces) and really do not want to waste it if i can get away with it. Thanks for any response,  Dan

I recommend giving it away to someone nonpaleo.  If that fails, pouring it down the drain will help you break the habit of thinking that eating slow poisons is better than "wasting" them.

My functional medicine doc recommends this for me. Told him I don't want the sugar and so he has me taking this in tablet form- sugar is thus removed. While taking this in capsule form may be upsetting to the Paleo pious- I can reap the benefits of tart cherries without the unnecessary flood of sugar.
