Juice It: Grapefruit vs. Orange

What breakfast is complete without a cold glass of juice? I love the flavor of both fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juices, but never thought about which was more healthy.

Since both are citrus fruits, they seem equally nutritious, but when I compared the two, there's more of a difference than I expected. To see what I discovered,


Although the differences aren't major, I was surprised that grapefruit juice contains fewer calories per serving. So if you're trying to lose weight, and you drink juice every morning, choosing grapefruit over OJ will save you 140 calories a week. If it's potassium or protein you're concerned with, OJ has grapefruit juice beat. Will knowing these nutritional differences make you choose one over the other, or is flavor more important to you?
