How Many Calories In Orange Juice?

Question: How Many Calories In Orange Juice?

A glass of juice sounds like the perfect way to start your day, right? Not if you're a dieter! There are 112 calories in a glass of orange juice. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but you’re probably going to pair your juice with a healthy breakfast and that tiny glass could tip the weight loss scales in the wrong direction. Sometimes when you're on a diet, drinking juice isn't the best idea.

You may be also be tempted to think that fresh squeezed juice is better if you’re on a diet. Not really. Fresh squeezed juice contains 112 calories, 26 grams of carbs and 22 grams of sugar, about the same as an 8 ounce glass of orange juice from Tropicana, according to CalorieCount.com.

So what’s a dieter to do? Eat an orange! There are fewer calories in an orange, less sugar and more fiber. You can also choose a tangerine or a clementine for fewer calories.
