Directions

  1. Peel the oranges.
  2. Cut them in half and separate the sections. Sprinkle the sugar (or, you can use Splenda) over them.
  3. Snack on the orange sections over a 1-hour period each and every morning.
  4. Relief!
  5. NOTE: DON'T substitute grapefruit for the oranges if you're taking blood pressure medicine -- grapefruit causes an undesireable drug interaction.
