Juicy! Part Two

More Atkins repercussions. Now the orange growers are feeling some stigma.

    LAKELAND, Fla. - Tired of losing orange juice drinkers to low-carb diets, Florida's citrus growers are fighting back.
Can't you just hear that in a Monster Truck commercial voice?

I do miss orange juice terribly.

I see that you remembered your name this time.

Actually, Pixy, she remembered it twice. I think that mean's she's developed split personalities, both of which, coincidentally, have the same initials.

Heather Louise Noggle, meet Helen Linda Nichols.

Now, boys, it's not THAT bad. And Brian's not worried because I'm not signing things hli (maiden name).

If you miss OJ, then drink it.

No diet's going to work if you're not enjoying it. (Otherwise, you will only stay on it until you can't stand it anymore, and proceed to gain all the weight back once you go off.)

And I've lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers, and still drink OJ every morning. Perhaps you've chosen the wrong weight loss plan.

I don't miss OJ, because I never really liked it, but I have avoided since I found out that drinking it with a meal will increase iron absorbtion and that males generally have too much iron to start with.

Of course, the flip side of it is that women should probably drink it for the exact same reason (increasing iron absorbtion.)

I drink it only when sick. I get plenty of fruit in other ways and choose to consuming calories while drinking only in 10-per serving doses (Propel) or alcohol.

I'm confused. You're going to write ORANGES across the back of your gym shorts now?! That doesn't make any sense.

Posted by: James Joyner at January 22, 2004 03:11 PM

And whose shorts will they be? Heather's or Helen's?

Posted by: Victor at January 22, 2004 03:23 PM

Heather's. A veritable whiteboard they are, indeed, those shorts.

Orange you glad?

Check out the OJ section - Tropicana Essentials now has lower sugar, etc. etc that will work with the different diets. And you're right - no diet works if you deny yourself. Even when I was on WeightWatchers I treated myself once a week and still lost 65lbs.
