Juice Plus's website states that "Juice Plus+ is the next best thing to eating fruits and vegetables". Hmmm. Well, why not just EAT the fruits and vegetables?? I could hardly justify spending the money for a supplement, just so I could avoid doing what's good for my body-- eating nutritious food. Frankly, it's about the silliest thing I've heard in a long time... take a pill, so you can avoid eating food.

In general, if you are being provided with something in pill form, it's better to just... eat the thing that's in the pill. Need more fruits and veggies? EAT THEM. Whatever you get in a pill will be far inferior, and more expensive.
And I ask you this: Is this something you want to take for the rest of your life? Is it part of a lifelong healthy lifestyle?
If the answer isn't "yes", don't start.

A friend of mine had recently recommended Juice Plus to me as a supplement to my diet. However, at $45 a month, I'm a little leery. Anyone ever used this? Or have success with it? Or is this just another diet gimmick? Would love your feedback.
