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.

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?
