I would count an 8-ounce serving of juide as one serving regardless what the can says. While I enjoy V-8 you're better off with whole fruits and vegetables.

I agree, Unident. I think the only time I would count it as an actual veg is when I make it from scratch in my Vitamix, since that beastie pretty much just takes whole veg and turns it into a yummy slurry. I always feel happy when my veg ticker maxes out.

When aiming for 5+ a day you should never count more than 1 as a liquid serving. So if your drink is 3 servings of veg, you should still aim for 4 more servings of solid fruit and vegetable matter.

Juicing leaves behind fibre and other nutrients and should not be your only source of fruit or veg.

Have a fantastic day. emoticon

The V8 website says there are 2 servings of vegetables in 8 oz. So assuming you've got a 12 oz. can, that would count as 3.

I am using the fruits and veg tracker. Does anyone know how many veggies I should be counting a V8 can as? They are 80 calories, so I'm thinking 2-3?
