  • when I was pregnant the gyno told me not to drink any orange juice because I had gotten gestational diabetis and that has sugar, he even told me not to drink milk.

  • I used to throw up with cold OJ or cold apple juice. In order to drink it, I'd have to leave it out until it got to room temp.

  • I had the same problem. I couldn't drink anything with citrus in it. So stop drinking it. You know it makes you sick...avoid it. It's not like you have to have it anyway.

  • They just came out with low sugar/low calories orange juice by Tropicana. I didn't like drinking orange juice either b/c of all the sugars and I get headaches easy with too much sugar. It doesn't have spenda in it either. It tastes a little different but more like oranges.
