this does not have a yes or no response. But these are the tips to follow:
make sure your juicer includes the pulp, so you are getting the fiber and complete nutritional package. this type juice will also be slightly thicker.
If you have a plan juicer that removes the pulp, save it and add to soups, stews, muffins, smoothies, etc.

Now the problem with both is that you can drink juice, in a large amount --quickly. There is benefit to slowing down the eating process, chewing, etc. On the flip side, people who dislike fruits and veggies sometimes find that a juice form makes it easier to meet need.

General recommendation: no more than 1 cup juice for the healthy adult. Watch your portion size, and include other whole fruits and veggies too.

yes and yes depending on which one you get. I don't have one yet. I like my vitamix. At least then I know that I am getting all the nutrients from the fruit and veggies and not losing it in the pulp.

Do you think its a good way to get a lot of your veggies in for the day?

Do you own a juicer and are they a pain to maintain?
