A health and fitness expert, Dr Bisi Abiola, has recommended fruit juice for professionals who are denied the opportunity of regular breakfast as a result of tight job schedules. Abiola during the November edition of her monthly discourse on the health benefits of fruit juice held on Friday noted that adding fruit juice to the breakfast gives individuals who are often too busy to eat regularly the needed nourishment to start off their daily activities. “The consequence of our modern lifestyle has forced many people to resort to unhealthy lifestyle and feeding habits, which are now frequently linked to the development of an increasing number of diseases like osteoporosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, respiratory infection, obesity, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and thyroid.
“In most homes, both parents have jobs, whether working for someone else or self-employed, leaving little or no time to cook. So, the norm is a grab-on-the-go meal or going without breakfast. One of the things that come handy in this situation is fruit juice,” Abiola said. Abiola said pure fruit juice could also be taken as a source of energy during prolonged meetings and intensive fitness sessions.
