I have a juicer.
Anytime you make juice though, you end up with a lot more carbs than if you just eat the veggies (or fruit). Plus it removes the fibre (unless you have a juicer that keeps the pulp in there).
So, let's say for example you make some carrot juice.... you use several large carrots for the juice (2-3 servings of carrots) You now get more carbs than you would if you just ate the carrot. PLUS, the sugar in the juice hits your blood stream almost immediately making it a fairly high GI juice. Not really a great thing when doing low carb.
This is one reason I don't use my juicer much anymore.
You can juice spinach and what not... doesn't taste all that great although some people think it's absolutely delicious!
I prefer to just eat the veggies. Also more filling.
So, the problem I outlined above is even more compounded when you use fruit.
Juices are good for people who need mega doses of vitamins and people that can process carbs efficiently. My dad beat pancreatic cancer by juicing.... it was necessary to remove the pulp to get all of the nutrients from the veggies....
Not sure if it's for me though...
