I have some splitting and swelling in the corners of my mouth. It is quite painful and makes me wonder if it could be from eating to many pineapples and oranges?? It hurts to eat or drink and especially to yawn.
I have about 2-3 cups orange juice in a day and 1-2 pineapples in a day.
Yeah, it's the unripe pineapples. They are never properly ripe in Europe. 1 a day max for me, less if they are less ripe.
I doubt it is the oranges.
A minority of our members are allergic to pineapple.
Make sure you are eating ripe fruits as even greenish bananas can cause problems:
Our recommendation against juicing:
Many of our members have had troubles with juicing such as indigestion, sour and or acidic stomach, acid reflux, blood sugar spikes, dizziness and brain fog, diarrhea, constipation, and inability to absorb and assimilate calories, vitamins and minerals in spite of high calorie count.
Juicing removes the fiber from the fruits n veggies.
Fiber is much needed in our intestines to regulate hydration and water absorption, to slow down digestion so that the body can slowly and properly assimilate vitamins and minerals, prevents blood sugar hikes, and prevents diarrhea and constipation.
Without this fiber, nutrients, calories, and carbohydrates can pass right through the system without being digested and assimilated and possibly lead to weight loss and or malnutrition.
It is better to train yourself and your digestive system right from the beginning to properly chew, digest, and assimilate fruits and leafy greens.
If you are having a difficult time with calories, then smoothies might be a compromise. With smoothies, the whole fruits and greens are blended and some of the fiber is still intact.

Good luck and Peace, PK
I let the pineapples sit on the counter for at least a week, Some times three. Those bad boys are never ripe.
I don't eat to many of them cause nobody sells organic ones around here.
They don't ripen after picking :(
