Best Vegetable Juice Brand
Don't base on taste!: In choosing aloe vera juice I believe taste is much less important than which is most beneficial- do you want a good tasting brand that is ineffective? And different people may have different ideas on which tastes best- it's a bit like asking which wine tastes best! There are many brands, each claiming to be the best. In my comment are links to help you choose quality brands. Taste them yourself! ...Read more
They're not!: Acai juice and any other otc garbage doesn't help with weight loss. Only if you're trying to lose weight in your wallet. Why would you take something when you don't know what's in it or whether it'll harm you -- particularly when it won't help you. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. Invest in healthy nutrition, weight loss, diet, etc. ...Read more
Lemon Juice won't: Lead to loss of abdominal fat.. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be abdominal fat.

Vegetable juice can be an easy way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet, but you shouldn't routinely use it to replace whole vegetables.
While vegetable juice has plenty of vitamins and minerals, it's lower in fiber and less filling than is a serving of most whole vegetables. Enough fiber in your diet may reduce your risk of constipation, high cholesterol, high blood sugar. ...Read more
Whole is better: Juicing is good though. But whole foods fill you. ...Read more
It is okay: A v8 is relatively healthy although it is thought that the less processed the better so more whole food approaches are thought to be even healthier. It would probably be healthier than a soda! If you are watching sodium you could try to get the low sodium version. Stay safe! ...Read more
Less sugar: Vegetable juice has a substantial amount of sugar from the veggies that it is made from. You will take in more calories from juice than if you eat a few servings of vegetables. Fiber is an issue too, and fiber from vegetables helps to reduce the risk of diabetes, colon cancer, diverticulosis, and obesity. ...Read more
I plan to start juicing fruits and vegetables. Do you think that there is a significant health benefit?
My diet does not consist of too many vegetables. Can I get the same nutrients from those vegetables by juicing them?
Different benefits: With juicing you get a greater concentration of nutrients from inside the plant cells, but you miss out on the benefits of certain enzymes and the natural interaction of food with your body. You also bypass the benefit of fiber. Don't only juice (of course you want to go organic whenever possible). Chew colorful fruits and vegetables. ...Read more
No rules: It is generally recommended to use as fresh (soon) as possible, as the deactivation of the most healthy nutrients -and the unpredictable interactions of a particular mix- starts very soon after prepared the juice. No fixed rule about hours is universally the truth (different factors will influence it). Drink it fresh. ...Read more
No laws!: Juicing is like any other cooking. There are no strict rules. Tons of suggestions though online about what mixes well together and what does not. There's a lot of fat in avocado. We all need to limit fat, whether good fats or bad, in our diet. (People who only eat food fried in avocado oil all day long, will be just about as sick/fat as any other person eating food fried in any other fat.) ...Read more
No: The answer is no. If breast-feeding is not possible, infant formulas contain all of the required nutrients needed by healthy infants. Juices have no nutritional value and should not be used. They provide unneccessary calories and will probably interfere with normal feeding. Occasionally pediatricians will use juice as a natural laxative for a constipated baby, but otherwise juice should not be used. ...Read more

Color: The best ones are the red and yellow veggies, carrots, squash etc. But don't overdo them because your skin will turn yellow from the carotene. But any and all of the veggies are good because they contain substances that help to prevent cancer, many of which are still unknown. Don't forget garlic in your diet but not as a juice. It has very benefical properties. ...Read more

What can happen to my childrens health if they don't eat any vegetables? I have 2 girls-- 8 years & 5 years. They refuse to eat any vegetables, no matter what form or how I try to hide them in certain foods. Will not drink any juice that has ve
Picky eaters can drive a parent nuts! Luckily, many studies have shown that even though your child may only eat one or two things in the course of a day, when looking at the week or even month, they have surprisingly balanced diets. Even kids that refuse veggies will receive plenty of vitamins and minerals from other sources such as fruits, grains, dairy and meat. Relax knowing that it's your job to buy and prepare nutritious food creatively and it's their jobs to eat it. As long as your child is healthy and growing properly (you can ask their doctor about their growth charts), you can take a deep breath and know they'll be ok in the long run.
Here are a few tips for picky kids:
-get them involved. Plant a garden. Have them shop with you and pick out foods they want to try. Get them involved in the preparation. Kids are more likely to eat the foods over which they feel some ownership and pride.
-use peer pressure to your advantage. Invite over non-picky friends and serve foods your children might not normally try or eat. You might be surprised what they eat when their friends are doing it, too.
-use dips. Kids love to dip. Healthy dip suggestions are: cottage cheese, fruit and veggie purees, cream cheese, guacamole, yogurt and peanut butter.
-presentation is everything. Making food look pretty and fun is half the battle. Serve food in interesting dishes such as measuring cups or toy plates. Make "food art" with foods cut into interesting shapes with cookie cutters and using the plate to create a picture.
-encourage "trying" instead of "eating" a new food. Many children do not like veggies because they can taste very different to a kid than they do to an adult. As your children mature, so will their tastes. Foods they previously did not like may suddenly become "not so bad". And "trying" is much less intimidating than "eating".
If you are really concerned about their vitamin intake, there's nothing wrong with using a children's chewable daily vitamin to put your mind at ease. Good luck!
