Can I have fresh orange juice during phase 2 of the diet?

One fresh squeezed orange yields approximately 3oz of juice and contains 39 calories and 9 grams of carbohydrate. If you are craving something sweet and refreshing you can have fresh squeezed orange juice and dilute with water to create more volume.

As you move to Phase 3 of the diet keep in mind that all beverages have calories and may have previously contributed to excess intake of calories and subsequently obesity. An 8 oz. glass of Tropicana orange juice has 108 calories and 26 grams of carbohydrates which is the equivalent of eating 2 oranges. Remember to account for all food and beverages by keeping track throughout the day of calories consumed. These all natural products are not necessarily sugar free and certainly not calorie free.
