How to count juicing calories and macros?

hey guys,

I'm on a juice fast and I was wondering if there was a way of counting the calories and macros from homemade juices in your daily food diary?

Any help would be much appreciated!

    yep, eat the food. When you juice, you lose all of the good fiber. Plus, you won't get enough calories and nutrients just from juice.

    Well I have worked out that I get about 200 calories from one glass of juice and I'm drinking about 4/5 a day. And all the nutrients are there as well. I just want to include them in my food diary.

    So how long are you planning on subsisting on 800-1000 calories of juice a day? What do you think is going to happen when you start eating food?

    Not to mention their teeth... All that sugar! No protein...

    OP, you need to do some research (or even a quick google) on how unhealthy juice diets really are.

    I've never done a juice fast but I do juice on a regular basis as a supplement to my nutrition. I juice the item and then measure how much of that particular juice I have and then log it into MFP. For instance say I juice two small carrots and receive 1oz juice. I add that to my diary - the dairy has the nutritional info for homemade juice. I do that for each item I juice.

    I know this post is old but I don't think she was asking for your judgement just an answer. I too was wondering how to add juicing macros to my FOOD diary so judge not and answer the damn question. If you don't know...don't contribute. Sheesh. Oh and thank you to the ONE person who contributed something useful.
