My boyfriend drank a whole gallon of orange juice in less than 2 hours and now he has diarrhea. Did him drinking that give him diarrhea?

In brief: High fructose load

If their was high fructose corn syrup added to the orange juice this could cause overload and produce diarrhea because the fructose is not completely digested /absorbed.
This causes water to be secreted into colon. Other sugars also could act similarly. If diarrhea persists for more than 24 hours or is associated with fevers consult your doctor
