A couple of questions regarding both...and assume I am talking strictly 100% all juices, not 10% mixed with sugar.

After a workout, which would be better to eat/drink post workout?

Which would be better to eat or drink throughout the day? (let's assume whole fruit is not an option, just hypotheically).

And as far as juices go...I understand not all are created nearly equal at all. The best ones to drink just from looking at nutrition facts and whatnot would be orange, prune, and pinapple. They seem to be the only juices that you don't have to fortify with a bunch of stuff. Aside from some acai berry/ $10 a pint stuff.

Which would be better, hitting yourself over the head with a hammer, or a crowbar?

Why would you want a constant stream of fruit sugar throughout the day?

I gave up juice many months ago....and most recently OJ. Giving up OJ was tough....

I do eat about 4 servings of whole fruit a day though....

Probably not any help....just my .02

If you want sugar PW just take dextrose, it's cheap and mixes well.

I'd rather eat dried fruit than drink juice, it has atleast some fibre.

For reasons I don't care to get into at the moment, I am posting this hypothetical just to weigh the pros and cons of fruit juice vs dried fruit. The post-workout question I guess I am not really as concerned about as the other two, but was semi curious. Not that I don't appreciate the imput Jebus.

@ Frogbyte- I don't plan on gulping down a gallon of fruit juice or an entire canister of raisins, so I guess I should have been more specific. Just slight sugar pick me ups here and there.
