It's not the calories I'm concerned about. Although, since in juicing, one loses much of the pulp, I figure counting the whole raw vegetables and fruits would more than likely already be a high reading on calories and all else. That's why I wonder how fiber is deducted since that is the only one that really rings up high in the tracker. But I know that I lost most the fiber during the process. Right now, I just ignore the fiber chart knowing this, but was wondering if there is any rule of thumb for deducting it.

I rarely drink juice, but when I do have a mix like that, I look to see which is the highest in calories and record it as that one. I'd rather overestimate than under. If you think that would put you WAY over, try doing it as half the highest-calorie juice and half the second highest-- so in this case, an 8-oz serving would be recorded as 4 oz carrot and 4 oz tomato.

I'm wondering the same question. Since I many times juice different vegetables, I just figure out the products and input that. But, it gives me a high fiber intake which I know is incorrect since it takes out nearly all fiber.

I'm trying to figure that out as well as I'm newly getting into fresh veggie juice.

I'm wondering if we enter all the veggies, and then have another entry to subtract out the fiber, if that will give us a closer-to-accurate representation of what we're consuming.

If you click on Healthy Lifestyle at the top of the page and go to SparkRecipes, you can put your ingredients in and find out the nutritional information for your drink.

Hope that helps,

I'm treating myself to 12 oz. of freshly pressed veggie juice.

I chose celery, tomato & carrots, with some ginger added for good measure.
Is this about 120 calories, or what?

So far I haven't found this exact combo via the Net.

And what nutrients and other benefits do these ingredients offer?

I recall celery is a natural diuretic, and carrots, of course, are good for our eyes...

Thanks so much in advance!
