I just read two posts about people having problem w/oranges.
I'm curious b/c last week and the week before I was eating mineola's (cross between grapefruit and and orange) sometimes called tangelo's they are super delicious and I can only get them in winter.
Anyhoo, I wonder if those may have caused my increased bm's? I am now back to 1 to 2 a day but last week got back up to 6 a day and not really sure what it was from.
I know coffee gives me increased bm's, and that is acidic. Maybe the acidity in the oranges does something to me too?
Just thinking out loud...........
