orange juice??

hi, my mate just said u should drink loads of orange juice to help meet 4-5000 kcals a day

my question is ` 99.9 % of the calories in orange juice comes from sugar, isnt sugar as bad as fat in a healthy diet? ie i thought sugar got turned into fat?

if someone is looking to build them selves up isnt drinking a lot of juice just tricking them into thinking theyve hit there 4000 target coz most of the calories is just from sugar?

isnt the bulk part of your diet supposed to be from chicken and pasta etc?

if someone ate 4000 kcals of mainly chicken and pasta but had fruit aswell to keep healthy would they gain more than someone who only ate 2500 kcals of chicken and pasta and drank a lot of juice to make it up to 4000 kcals?

    impossible to tell

    TBH i always source cals from the original, so oranges over orange juice as there are less aditive

    maybe read the bulking diet i did at the top of the forum for some help

    Doesn't seem a great idea to me. Milk is probably a better alternative with better protein and carbs..

    I must admit I take in a lot of juice to up the calories, it's all about how much and in relation to other things.

    At one point I was on 3000 cals, but 1500 came from whey, milk, flax oil, maltodextrine and juice. NOT GOOD.

    However say 300 cals from concentrate pure juice on a bulk would be fine I guess. Whereas if you can't eat another mouthful and you've only eaten maintenance cals then a few hundred from juice would be a great idea.

    ok i understand wot u guys a saying

    just digging for a bit more info, if u say orange is ok, i pointed out that 99.% of the calories in it come from sugar

    im sure somewhere on this site it was mentioned to avoid sugar if possible, so why is it ok with orange?

    maybe if i eaten 300kcals of sugar to top up my cals lol surely not?

    avoiding sugar is not required IMO

    avoiding added sugar in many commerically produced organe juices is advoacted by many due to them being 'crap' calories

    eat the natural original and i see less of an issue

    sugary drinks, regardless of goals, should be limited in most diets IMO, not excluded but certainly not a staple part of a diet
