Hi there,

It could be dehydration. Uses one craves something thirst quenching like orange juice when they are dehydrated-even if only slightly dehydrated. Or you may be getting addicted to the natural sugar that is in the oranges. Your craving for something juicy makes me think of dehydration though.
