I guess I'm not inclined to count each item juiced as an entire serving, because the fibrous part is removed from the equation - shoots out the back, and goes into my compost pile or a future soup. So, I'm not ingesting that part. Maybe I'm just being too picky.

I would think the same, whatever goes into the juicer, is counted as a whole item. I don't juice either. Unless you would call using a Nutri Bullet juicing, because it does pulverize it. It just includes pulp and all.

Time waits for no one. Do it while your still young. It DOES get harder as you age, things don't snap back like it used to.

I would think that if you juiced a whole carrot, it would count as a whole carrot. But I'm just guessing.

I don't juice. emoticon

If no one here can answer the question, there are several teams devoted to juicing that might be able to help.

Good luck!

I've been overjoyed to find that a lot of the juices I've been drinking are easy to find on the Sparkpeople Nutrition tracker. I guess that's one of the benefits of being a 'late' adopter of trends; others have done to the work to enter those recipes.

What I wonder is how to track the juice I drink in terms of # of fruits and vegetables on the Sparkpeople tracker at the top.

It seems obvious that it wouldn't be a 1:1 ratio; clearly, one juiced carrot can not 'count' the same as one whole, raw carrot that is not juiced.

Does anyone have any ideas about this? Do you click one vegetable for every so many ounces of juice? Or, one vegetable for every 3 fruits/veggies that went into making your juice?
