It depends on what I am trying to do. If I am trying to quench my thirst, I love a nice cold glass of juice, but if I am hungry I will go for the piece of fruit. The fruit is actually better for us than the juice, but both seem healthier than other alternatives.

there are a lot of fruits around the place here in davao. that's why i prefer to take the fresh fruits than the juice in cans. fruits are delicious and nutritious as well.fresh fruits usually contain antioxidants and fiber support the body's defenses and help to keep it running smoothly. The following are the health benefits the fruits can give us: # Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases. # Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for type 2 diabetes. # Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain cancers, such as mouth, stomach, and colon-rectum cancer. # Diets rich in foods containing fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. # Eating fruits and vegetables rich in potassium as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and may help to decrease bone loss. # Eating foods such as fruits that are low in calories per cup instead of some other higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake Source: http://www.mypyramid.gov/pyramid/fruits_why.html

I like both real fruit juice and fresh fruits. Juices are great because I can sip on it and enjoy it while doing something else. They are so convenient in terms of consumption and is a good way to ensure that I get adequate vitamins. Like when I am on mylot, for example.....lol :) Also, I drink juice when I've had a heavy meal and am unable to eat anymore fruits because that'll be too filling. Fresh fruits are great when I am hungry and need something to fill my stomach. They also are a great snack in between meals. Additionally, when I need to restrict my diet, they can also be used in place of one meal a day. That cuts my fat intake.

I definitely prefer fresh fruit rather than fruit juice. Fruits are very abundant here in the Philippines. To my rough estimate, maybe about more than 50 different types of fruits here. However, there are lots of fruit juices also available in the market. But I rarely drink the juices because the fresh fruits are readily available here.

Just like you've said, i like fresh fruits for there is no alteration of them unlike the fresh fruits there maybe some chamicals added to hte juice either for preservation purpose or to give a more sweet taste. Even the fibrous fruits which aid digestion when in juice form the fibre is lost. so ilike fresh fruits.
