Why Juicing is Not Good for You

There are two main reasons why juicing is not as good for you as eating the whole food.

1) Juicing removes much of the nutritional value from food including fiber.  The fiber helps you digest the food in a healthier fashion.  You are much less likely to get a spike in your sugar levels when consuming sugars with the fiber.

2) Juicing increases your caloric intake.  Typically, you consume 4 times more calories when juicing.

There are other disadvantages to juicing, such as, increasing toxicity of certain foods.  For instance, raw kale contains a substance that can be toxic. Juicing kale increases the toxicity.
