Why Am I Addicted To Orange Juice?
Orange juice is the highest glycemic fruit juice and raises your blood sugar levels quickly and significantly. I recommend having your physician test you for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) conditions. It could be that your body is naturally craving the sugar because of a medical condition. That being said, it is also very possible that you are simply addicted to sugar, and the affects that a high blood sugar level has on your body and/or mental state. If that is the case, a rapid and sustained jump in your blood sugar level can be very dangerous - it can cause seizures, development of diabetes, coma, and even death. Please see your doctor as soon as possible. Until then, be sure that you are at least drinking 100% juice with no added sugar. The fructose from the oranges is at least somewhat healthier for your body than corn syrup. Also, keep in mind that a single serving (8 ounces, or 1 cup) of orange juice contains 100% daily value of vitamin C. Ingesting high levels of vitamin C can lead to calcification and the development of kidney stones. Hope this helps! Blessings, Ima Continue reading >>
