it depends on your carb allowance, I guess. considering that most of us try to eat as much fiber as we can, both because it's filling and it's good for us. juicing gives you the carbs in something in a much faster form without the benefit of the fiber. so I would say that unless you have some specific medical condition that prevents you from eating the whole vegetable, you are much better off eating the whole vegetable!

celery juice has 5.66 grams of net carbs per cup
and entire POUND of celery has 6.17 grams of net carbs

that is why people don't juice!

if you want beverages like this, you could puree cucumber in water and drink the whole thing, for example.

good luck

these don't agree with my source at all. I am not saying they are wrong, because who knows in these cases, which is right? that the only way to count this well is probably to weigh the vegetables before juicing, don't you think?

What happens to all the fiber after it is juiced? May be there is a way to collect that stuff and eat it or use it for other dishes, or dehydrate or bake into chips?

get a nice blender (vitamix) and then you don't need to 'juice'. It's an amazing blender. Keep in mind, juicing looks to give people fatty livers:

I agree with the Vitamix or a strong blender. It literally juices the entire fruit/veggie--including the peel and fiber. Then, for the carb count, you will just count what fruit/veggie you used and subtract the fiber (if you count net carbs) as you normally would in eating fruit.

Right now, I'm not at a point to be eating that much fruit anyway--maybe some veggies. But maybe one day......

I 3rd the vitamix

Once I start adding in some berries I am going to start making some green smoothies again in my vitamix. I miss it.

Sorry, i should have added that this appears to be the nutritional info for the veggies in raw state- not juiced!! (copied from the website that provided the recipes) And yes, I would fully agree in measuring, or better yet WEIGHING any fruits or veggies before juicing to have accuracy!

Gee, and I was wondering how to fit a ham in the juicer! LOL.

Seriously, juicing is not a good idea for the long term. Vegetables and fruits are made to be eaten whole, not all the good stuff squeezed out of it and leaving the sugary water to drink.
