    Orange juice - good or bad?


    Is orange juice OK to drink even though it's has so much sugar? Are there times when it's better than others?

    IMO replace fruit juices with the whole fruit and a glass of water when possible.

    That said, fruit sugar is not necessarily bad, it is a question of how much. So the long answer to your question is yes, it is ok as long as it fits into your calorie limit and macro plan. You do have a meal plan right....
