BAD--there is a Spark article about how silly the idea is. You are taking out all of the good fiber and consuming something that is extremely high in carbs instead of eating a balanced diet.

If you are particularly sensitive to carbs, juicing would be a good way to gain weight.

I like to juice on the weekend just to use up some of my older produce that I wouldn't really eat otherwise, such as too-soft apples and wimpy greens, or soft carrots, squishy grapes, etc. Otherwise I would just throw them away. Juicing can be a healthy part of a diet, but I wouldn't do it every day.

I love to juice. I once did a 30-day juice fast and it was awesome. it actually cured my migraines. But I also make raw soups using my vitamix blender and that is when I use the whole vegetable- pulp and all.

Don't sweat the small stuff!

I don't juice exactly, but i do take vegetables, put them in a blender and add some water. I know that is not how true juicing works, but i don't like many vegetables plain but do love them this way, I think its more convenient than juicing for me.

I have been thinking about adding juicing to my diet. It's hard to eat the recommended vegetables, especially since there are some I don't like on their own. I could see having veggi/fruit juice with some lean meat for lunch. Maybee I'll do the smoothie thing for breakfast. What are some of the benefits of juicing?

Has anyone ever read the small print at the end of "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead"? He had supplementary foods on his diet like beans and nuts, hahah. I tried to do a smoothie diet because I love the pulp too but I got too hungry. I might try it again someday.

I think smoothies are better for you because you use the whole fruit/veg. However, I'm not really into either one. I like to chew solid food. It's part of the digestive process for a reason. If I drink my calories, I never feel as full or satisfied as when I eat them normally. When you juice or blend smoothies, you take the chewing step out of the process and the food gets to your stomach more broken down than normal. That means your stomach has less work to do to digest it and pass it to the small intestine. So I think I get hungrier much quicker from drinking my calories.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

By juicing, and throwing the pulp, you are missing out on tons of very important nutrients and fibre. If you rather drink the liquid rather than the pulp, you could using the pulp in casseroles and gravies as well as baking.

I juice a few mornings a week and every week I make a homemade soup with homemade vegetable stock. I use the pulp and add it to my homemade stock each week.

Yeah, I like solid food too much to ever just drink juice, but I love it for breakfast or if you have slipped on your diet for the day, make it dinner!

I would like some recipes for how to use the pulp. Seems like such a waste to juice all of that juice and throw the pulp away!

I think that using vegetable juice as part of a healthy diet is a good thing.

Drinking only juice alone and excluding every other food isn't a good thing.

I have heard of people taking the pulp and baking it into bread and muffins. Or making soup out of it.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Anybody have a juicer? I was just reading in another post that getting rid of the pulp is bad and that you should eat it? I watched the film "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and they don't use the pulp. I love a nice large glass of fresh green juice with some eggs for breakfast. Anybody have a favorite juice recipe?

How would you go about using the pulp?
