All juice should be tracked. Depending on the quantity used, it can greatly impact weight.

If you have a juicer that spits out the pulp, skin, fiber---then you are missing out on some of the nutrients and the fiber benefit.

Estimate about 60 calories for a 1/2 cup portion of fruit juice and 20 calories for a 1/2 cup portion of vegetable juice. And zero fiber. If your are mixing both fruits and veggies together--then use 40 calories for every 1/2 cup consumed.

Now if you have a high powered juicer that pulverizes the skin, pulp, etc---then you are getting the benefit of all nutrients and fiber. You can then use the actual food listing in the data base for an accurate count.

Does this help?

I was just wondering how most people track their juice?

I was thinking of listing all the fruits and veggies I put in but since I am not actually eating the carrots, kale, apples, ect it would not be correct. I did see it did list juice for items but it was in measurements. I don't measure out each type of fruit or veggie once in juice form. Which than got me thinking even if there was an option that said 1 juiced carrot who is to say it would be correct. My Omega juicer definitely gives better results than my Jack Lalanne did.

I know I am over thinking this haha. I would like some direction on how most people track their juicing.
