If you have blood sugar/insulin problems, fruit juices will indeed spell trouble for you, as fruit JUICES are a very concentrated source of sugar. Eating the whole fruit will slow absorption of the sugar, partly because of the fiber content.
Not everyone can handle the same load of carbohydrates, particularly the concentrated sugars in fruit juices.
If you are one of those lucky people who can handle fruit juices, why, then drink all you want.
As for the rest of us, including people like me, we do better with fewer carbohydrates.
There is solid science for the rationale of eating low-carb, if you bother to read about it. Try any of the "Protein Power" books... they have a lot of well-written, easy-to-understand explanations throughout, especially the "Protein Power LifePlan" book.
Not everyone can handle the same load of carbohydrates, particularly the concentrated sugars in fruit juices. I am one of those people. It has been a very long time since I drank orange juice and ate an orange. My son bought a house with many orange trees on it, and to my dismay I won't be able to eat them. :(

For 2 1/2 years I've given up virtually everything I truly enjoy eating. I'll be d****d if I'll give up orange juice!
