I pressed out 64 oz of OJ this morning but couldn't get down but 54 oz. Anyways after I got it all down about 15 minutes later it felt like someone lit a fire in my stomach. It took about 30 minutes for it to subside. I am assuming I had some unripe oranges in the mix?? By the way how can you tell when a orange is ripe enough?
Ya Juice without the fiber is generally bad although some who suffer from serious IBS or the like do use it under some circumstances because they have no alternative. But OJ with the pulp is fine for anyone anytime:
With a few exceptions, it is preferable to consume the whole food rather than to extract part of it and drink it. Drinking fruit or carrot juice without the pulp being present to slow the absorption rate of the nutrients can spike the blood sugar and throw your blood chemistry out of balance. It is far better to consume the whole fruit. One exception is fresh-squeezed citrus fruits, since a significant portion of the pulp is generally retained with the juice. The other "exceptions" are to blend fruits such as melons, and to make smoothies out of various fruits like bananas and strawberries. Liquefying the entire fruit in a blender turns it into a juice or a thick smoothie, while keeping the entire nutritional package together. Blending whole tomato, celery and orange together makes a thick, tasty, salad dressing.
I agree, bound to be unripe. I've found the same with bought unpasteurised OJ - the oranges are clearly picked unripe, this reflected in the cals listed as approx 100/L lower than same juice pasteurised.
Sorry, can't help with spotting unripe; I'm in UK and most imported fruit is sold unripe. Someone will help, I'm sure. Drinking more water is good, also consider what you ate the preceding 4 hours?
I don't think 1.5L is a lot, Duncan! Unrelated comparison, I'd say.
not unrelated comparison. same amount of sugar in each. the orange juice is more acidic though. Making OJ is refining your food - its not raw
You are advocating drinking more water? to dilute the effect of course. Again - why not just eat fruit as its supposed to be eaten
why not just eat fruit as its supposed to be eaten?
I don't know about the original poster's reasons for doing it, but I sometimes juice OJ in order to get my calories up. I physically cannot eat 12-20 oranges (yet), I'm lucky to be able to do 5 in a sitting, but because I'm pregnant and breastfeeding I have no choice but to keep my calories up everyday. I figure I'd rather get those calories in the form of a mostly healthy raw food that gives me a lot of vitamins and minerals as well rather than binging on cooked food. So, for now, until I work up to being able to eat enough whole fruit in one sitting, I have to supplement with juice.
well i asked that question because this lifestyle seems to me to be a very naturalistic one. I dont see how any form of processing would fit into it. Plus I know that swamping your system with 300grams of sugar in one go is not healthy - on any diet or lifestyle. I'm not totally convinced we are supposed to eat "meals" or have "sittings". Our ancestors eating a diet of this sort would have been eating throughout the day. I like to call it drip feeding. I don't think you need or should eat that many oranges in one day even if some people can.
No. Monkeys, apes, etc all gorge on fruit when they encounter a tree. Then they may go hours or days without another big meal. They don't stroll through the woods eating a bite here, a piece of fruit there, and so forth.
they still dont gorge on fruit juice
It probably wasn't ripe and like others have said, drinking water before hand helps a ton.
I can't drink a large amount of OJ without stomach problem, unless they're sweet as sugar and have no acid taste. I'm really enjoying honey tangerine juice atm, and I had 2 liters for breakfast with no problem.
Basically 811 seems to be "emulate chimpanzees or bonobos in what and how we eat" so I dont think fruit juice is on their menu
No way. These animals eat massive amounts of vegetation that would be completely indigestible to humans. It's a completely different diet.
ok then what is it based on?
