If you're looking out for him, buy them a gym membership.

You need about 6 oranges to make a glass of juice. Fresh juice is much healthier than anything from the store.

It's also better (nutrient wise) to consume the entire fruit, not just the juice. I don't find it very practical to buy 42 oranges a week just to make 1 glass a day.

It does add up quickly.

I thought you were talking about steroids.

Sorry I can't help with the juicer ... I'm told to stay out of the kitchen.

There are times one might simply want a fruit drink rather than eat fruit. There are some places one can easily buy fresh juice; in the Bay Area I have that option. But in other places -- living on a small island, for example -- it's easier to have a juicer and buy oranges (or another fruit or vegetable) in quantity.

A juicer is also great when one prefers juice that is a particular blend of fruits and/or vegetables.

I have that juicer and really like it. It isn't perfect but it's well made, simple and goes through anything. The washable parts are dishwasher safe (for those of you who find that important), and the only thing that's challenging to wash is the filter. They provide a brush for that, which makes cleaning it relatively simple.

All in all very pleased.
