In brief: It is a great way to

Get them into your diet.
Use of either a whole fruit juicer or a juice extractor is very healthy for use with fresh fruits & vegetables. Yes, serving size is the same - but be aware that in many cases you will add water, so that it isn't quite so concenctrated. Also be aware that if you use an extractor that you will be removing benefits of fiber. Use of juicing helps to release enzymes. Ensure.

that you are drinking more vegetable juices then fruit juices. Some people eat the pulp from the extractor to ensure that they are getting the fiber too. Try to always go for organic - wash food well if that is not available.

In brief: Juicing

Yes, of course it is okay.
But, if you are planning on this helping you lose weight then you do not understand the science of weight loss. Most people are overweight from too many sugars in their diet. High concentration of veggie and fruit calories means that is a high concentration of sugar calories, 100% of the calories being carbs. It is not likely to help you lose weight.
