juicing question

do juices from veg/fruit have carbs?

today i juiced a carrot, 1/2 lemon, cabbage, sweet pepper, parsley and celery. Do juices retain any carbs?

i dont know, thats why i asked?

ok lets ask his question another way.

scenario 1: i eat 100g of carrots
scenario 2: i drink the juice of 100g carrots

which scenario (if not both the same) means i get the most glycemic load?

Yes, It's as if you ate them. Thats why you have to be so careful with fruit juices.

You should get higher glyc load from the juice because there is no fiber to slow the process down (assuming your juicer extracts the juice instead of just blending the veg).

I'm curious about why fatty liver would be healed by juicing? My sense is that one of the main causes of fatty liver now is high fructose consumption (since fructose is processed in the liver), and if you choose to juice fruit, then you will be stressing your liver more. (I did notice that your example was of juicing vegetables, not fruit, so perhaps this is somewhat irrelevant, but root vegetables like yams, carrots, and beets do have some fructose.)

Thanks, Luigi, for the clarification. The nutritionist Louise Gittelman suggests drinking hot water with lemon juice first thing in the morning to support liver functioning, so that sounds like a good choice.
