I know that under the new program, most fruits and vegetables are 0 points. I have a concern though about juicing - I don't want to go over my points. I know part of the factoring in points for fruits/veggies is the fiber content. Which is missing in juice. To make 1 glass of juice in the morning, I generally have 4 carrots, 2 apples, some celery and usually some other veggie like broccoli/beet/cabbage. How many servings does this constitute? I would count it as 2 veggies and 2 fruits but maybe I should count it as 1 of each? Also, since the fiber is missing from this, I feel like I *should* count some kind of points so that I dont' go over my points for the rest of the day - I would eat a lot of fruits and veggies throughout the day but I can't count them ALL as 0 points, can I...if I consume more than 5 official servings? I could easily eat 5 or 6 servings of fruit alone, plus another 2 or 3 of veggies, apart from the juice. Am I making sense?
