This is why I don't juice - ever. If you like juice blend it without removing the pulp (the fiber).But even increased whole fruit consumption (from one serving of low-carb berries to about 3 servings/day) increased my A1c level from 5.7 to 6.0 , in the pre-diabetic range, so I think that focusing mostly on veggies is a better idea, and even there staying away from the sweeter and starchier ones like corn, carrots, turnips etc. is necessary for me to keep my blood sugar levels in the normal range.

Funny you posted this - I just read it too. I just finished a 5 day juice fast and while it didn't raise my blood sugar, I couldn't stand watching all that fiber coming out of the juicer in the form of pulp. I think long term, I may juice a small amount just so I can put fresh juice in my green smoothies. Also once in awhile, I will juice, but I think overall I will stick to eating whole or blending.
p.s. - Yvonne, I fixed my error on the ticker tape.
