Yeah - juices can be REALLY high in calories. And I make an effort to EAT my calories, instead of drinking them...otherwise, they just go too quickly! Since weight loss is all about calories in vs. calories out, I just don't get enough benefit from something like juice to want to consume it on a regular basis.
Next time, try eating an orange...they've got only a fraction of the calories, plus all the fiber of whole fruit that you just don't get in a glass of juice, so it'll fill you up.
If you really want juice, you can keep portion sizes small by mixing a bit of juice with a lot of seltzer or mineral water. That way you get the flavor, but the calories are kept in check.
