Why Is My Body Craving Orange Juice
Craving sweets: You are probably just craving something sweet. Orange juice has a lot of sugar. Way too much sugar. I do not recommend drinking any fruit juice. Eating fruit is healthy but drinking them is not. It takes a lot of oranges to make a glass of juice and you don't need that much sugar. Try to drink milk and water and eat fruit. Avoid other sweet drinks like pop and gatorade as well. ...Read more

Goji berries: I am not aware of any problem with people eating them or drinking juice from them. When you say "a lot", this needs to translate into a real #. Feeling warmer after eating them - not sure if related. Slow down on eating them and see if that gets better. ...Read more

25weeks pregnant. Is snapple peach tea & snapple diet peach tea okay to drink if I only have 1 cup? Its one of the few drinks that satisfy my thirst.
See answer: Food, drinks and vitamin supplements can change odor of urine. Eating asparagus and drinking coffee are two of them. Asparagus leaves distinct smell to those people who have a particular gene that allows one to smell it and urine frequently smells like coffee after drinking it.

Alcohol rash: This is very common in orientals and I experienced in my practice frequently when in Thailand but have not see it since. If you avoid alochol I doubt that you will experience it.

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
