Is orange juice unhealthy how much would be too much

Is orange juice unhealthy how much would be too much

Orange: Orange juice is tricky - we've been told for years how healthy it is, right? True, it has vitamin c, calcium (if you buy the calcium fortified stuff), and it tastes good, but there are a few other things to keep in mind:

- an 8 oz glass of oj has almost as much sugar as a can of soda
- oj has little to no fiber, so that sugar rush can cause an Insulin spike which eventually leads to high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain. Eating the whole fruit is much better for you because the fiber found in the fruit causes the sugars to be digested more slowly which avoids the Insulin spike
- the stuff you buy in the carton has been processed with many chemicals to increase shelf life - even the expensive stuff! If you must have oj, it's much better to squeeze it yourself.

The 2 best bits of dietary advice I can give pertaining to juice is "everything in moderation" or "bypass the juice and just eat the fruit". Your body will thank you. ...Read more

Please explain why does orange juice burn my chapped lips?

Please explain why does orange juice burn my chapped lips?

OJ is very acidic.: Orange juice and other citrus juices, like lemon juice, are very acidic. When you have irritation of your lips or skin the acid burns. I don't recommend drinking any fruit juice. It contains a huge amount of sugar and it is very fattening. Eating fruits is healthy and drinking them is not because it takes so many oranges to make a glass of oj. Drink milk and water and eat fruits and vegetable. ...Read more

I am constantly craving orange juice! I'm not hungry and not craving sweets or junk food. I drank almost a gallon today. Why could this be?

Orange juice: Probably because you like it but a gallon a day is far too much.
Have you given any thought to why you take so much OJ?
Are you having to urinate several times a day?

I suggest that you take your orange juice no more than twice a day (glass full, not a gallon) and if you are thirsty take water.

Frequent urination from too much liquid is not good for you! ...Read more
