Juicing Fruits & Vegetables | Healthy Eating | Andrew Weil, M.D.


Juice is a good thing for people, especially
people that may not eat vegetables or fruit. Be careful of fruit juice because it is a
concentrated sugar source so you want to be careful of the quantities of fruit juice you
eat and if you do, dilute it with water or sparkling water. If you are going to juice
yourself, that is great and you want to use high-quality produce that is fresh, preferably
organic. If people like to juice, it is a great thing for them to do. There is no necessity
to consume juice, and it is not giving you some of the elements, fiber particularly,
that you would get in the whole forms of vegetables. But if you have ever had a chance to make
your own V8-like juice it is infinitely better than the stuff you get in a can.
