Is it true that citrus fruits will keep you up at night?

I would think that most of it is psychological. The only thing that could be the cause is the rush of energy from the natural sugars from the fruit itself which cause a burst of energy along with the sugars you may add to the grapefruit. The psycological aspect is that citrus fruits taste fresh and are usually cold and juicy. This makes us feel similar to taking a cold shower. The fact is that you are probably just having a rough night from something else. Try working out a bit in the afternoon or reading a bit just before you go to bed to relax your body and mind. Hope i could help.

For People Who like oranges and other citrus fruits?

There are grosser things to eat besides orange pulp, believe me. No I don't chew the pulp, I drink it down along with the juices while eating an orange. The sugars in an orange are all natural and delicious. As for a tangerine, it's a smaller, sweeter and has a darker flavor than an orange.  To remove a lot of the pulp when you're going to eat an orange is to peel it correctly. Take a paring knife and cut it all the way around about a 1/2 of a centimeter. Do it again the other way so that you have two criss crosses (all the way around). Start peeling at the top, where the stem was.

When you are done peeling it, take your fingers and spread the orange in half. There will be strings of pulp hanging off the sides that you can easily pull off. As far as lemons and limes, though I never drink the pulp unless pieces fall into my water or tea. I spritz their juices onto my food for extra flavor. Lemon juice is amazing in soup.

Can citrus fruits such as a lemon or a orange clean dirty coins,and if so how?


Citiric acid ( hence the name)...its an organic acid ( ie comes from something living) but I think its do with the acid ( its a weak acid) reacting with the oxidised layer on the coin to make them shiny again. The oxidised layer should be METAL ( whatever the metal is in the coin) oxide and a metal oxide+acid --> hmm thinking hmm maybe hydrogen gas and a salt and leaving metal clear.

I am pretty sure that carbonated drinks have carbonic acid ( form the carbon dioxide dissolving in the water) among other things...maybe added citric acid??
