Calories in Orange Juice

In general when you are trying to lose weight, there are just too many calories in orange juice for one to drink it; however I can think of two times when I have broken the rules. Recently after a pancake fund raiser II found this spool decorated in the woods and added the orange juice. ended up with almost a gallon of orange juice that was leftover. I was reminded of growing up when most school days we had one egg, one piece of bacon, one piece of  toast and a small glass of orange juice.   This really was not a bad breakfast for a child going to school. and that small glass of orange juice might still be good for me today.  That small glass was a quart devided between the 7 of us or 32/7 = 4.5 ounces.  That is half or a cup.  The champaigne glass holds 4 ounces.  I added the coffee cup of orange juice to remind you of the size of a cup.
As you can see from the chart:
There are about 14 calories per ounce for fresh orange juice and about 15 calories per ounce for store bought orange juice.
There are about 112 calories per cup of fresh orange juice and about 122 calories per cup of store bought orange juice.

On the day that I was thinking about how to write about the calories in orange juice, I came across this spool in the woods where I jog.  I came back with my camera and orange juice to take a picture. The 4 ounce champagne glass has about 60 calories (0.50 calorie cash).  The coffee cup has about 122 calories (1.25 calorie cash)
