Is it ok to drink like 100 percent apple, orange, or berry juice in place of a couple glasses of water, or does it have to be only the 8-10 glasses of water to get any results???

the juice i am talking about is 100%, and not really high in sugars. aren't they mostly made out of water anyways, or what?

fruit juice is full of fructose, which is sugar. yes, it's natural, not added, but it has the same effect as added sugar. it's not good for you.

overall, no.

"Freshly squeezed fruit juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar per eight-ounce glass. This sugar is typically a fruit sugar called fructose, which is every bit as dangerous as regular table sugar since it will also cause a major increase in insulin levels.

This doesn’t mean that you should avoid fruit, just fruit juice. When the fruit is intact and whole, its fiber will somewhat moderate the release of fructose into the bloodstream as well as somewhat moderate insulin release."
