So, when was the last time you've had any sort of fruit or vegetable? The only time I could imagine that happening is if you don't touch them at all. In which case, embrace the shits, because you obviously need some good fiber in your life.

Probably first time having such a high amount of fruit before after such a long time of not having that many. I've seen a few people have some bad reactions to suddenly going from few fruit to a huge amount of them.

Sugar in pop comes from sugarcane or sugar beets. An unhealthy amount is then added. However, your body does indeed need sugar, so drinking fruit smoothies is still healthy as the sugar occurs in more "natural" amounts.

#7 did not imply fruit is unhealthy (nor did I), they said it is better to eat fruits separately instead of in a smoothie. It contains sugar and not one kind of sugar is healthy when taken in large quantities. Seperate fruit is healthier because of the fiber in the peel, because it is less easy to digest (you need more energy to chew than to swallow) and because you eat smaller quantities when you eat them whole. I google-searched this and the first 10 results all said this. What is wrong with you people?

#7 is entirely correct. Even if it is natural sugar, you are blending up all the fiber and making it pretty much useless. That means you get rapid absorption of sugar into your blood which makes your insulin spike and causes a sugar rush and why OP got the shits. The energized feeling you get after a smoothie isn't because it's healthy, you are getting a sugar rush.

Despite some of the snide comments; the occasional large smoothie can intact be good for you, though it is also a good idea to add vegetables. One of the benefits is actually the subject of the FML- OP's lower digestive tract is probably the cleanest it has been in years!
