If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

Maybe: You have to control two things:

calories ingested

calories burned

That's all. The 3rd factor is your genetically given physiology/metabolism, and how efficiently you burn/utilize calories, and where the body prefers to store fat. Honestly not too much to do about these factors despite all the gimmicks that shysters promote. ...Read more

Sudden onset of cold sweat, weak, hot, shaking hands, fast breath, intense craving for sugar candy or orange juice. Stop after eating candy.....?

Blood sugar?: Sounds like one of a few things — anxiety or dehydration (which were cured by time) or hypoglycemia (which was cured by the sugar). There are a few other less likely things down the list. You should eat, sleep and exercise regularly.

Better than 'juice drinks', yes, but not that much better. I often suggest diluting it. But, juice is not necessary for your child. It has vitamin c, yes, but that is easily obtained from many other sources. ...Read more

So coffee and a doughnut at 7 am will lead to a metabolic overload and dump/low blood sugar at 930 am. Be well. ...Read more
