Do we lose fiber when we juice?

A Yes we do, most but not all fiber is lost. The idea behind juicing is that you get loads of nutrients that are easy to assimilate because there is no fiber to slow down the process. You body does not have to work hard to glean the nutrients so your digestive system gets a rest as well.

Fiber is however very important which is one reason I like green smoothies. They to are easier on the digestive system than whole foods, but also contain all the fiber from the foods.

I start my day with a green smoothie and most days enjoy a quart of green juice in the afternoon. My other meal or two are comprised of whole foods with all their fiber.
