Remember a few years back when pomegranate juice was all the rage? It was supposed to make us younger, prettier, and smarter — if you bought into the hype. Turns out, an eight-ounce glass has a calorie count equal to a full can of Coke.
“Pomegranates do have polyphenols and antioxidants, which are good for you, but it’s always better to eat the fruit than to drink the juice — no matter what fruit you’re talking about,” says Dr. Morrison. If you still want to drink pomegranate juice — the fruit is hard to eat, after all — cut it with seltzer to reduce the calories.
