I don't see how you could have any juice to speak of and be very low carb. I think it would be hard to take juice and be low carb at all!

Are you talking very small quantities of vegetable juices, like a tablespoon of celery juice?

If I am remembering the correct product, Juice Plus are powder filled capsules...I think they are equivalient to a serving of fruit and veggies. Suppose to be a concentrated form of fruits and veggies.

The nutritional facts show 2 g carbs with 1 g of fiber per serving. I did use these a few years ago and I remember I had to buy them from a distributor and I believe they were a bit pricey for my budget.

It will be interesting to hear other opinions.

they are capsules that contain a full days serving of fruits and veggies. its a whole food product not a vitamin or supplement (ok, no sales pitch).... it costs me $45 a month but I have seen how good it is for my kids so I know its cool. I was just wondering about vlc and this product.

I love the feedback though

I have had opportunity to doubt the efficacy of Juice Plus.....no real research behind it.

I took JuicePlus and did low carb quite a few years back. I didn't seem to have any problems with it. I lost about 30 lbs in 3 months, but then I turned up pregnantand everything went out the window.

I wish I had the money to start taking it again.

Love those results.... minus the pregnancy I would have to be put in a padded room and throw away the key
