I don’t believe they even mentioned juicing? Regardless, though, juicing is not overrated, it just sounds like you may be mis- or under-informed about its benefits. Yes, you absolutely need fiber, but juicing isn’t for that. Your body has to digest food/fiber to absorb the nutrients within it, and fiber slows this process down. Instead of looking at juicing as a meal, think of it as a supplement to a healthy diet, as it is basically a concentrated IV of vital, raw nutrients that your body rarely, if ever, gets elsewhere (kind of like vitamins, but vitamins are not bioavailable and you just pee them out more often than not). Also, you shouldn’t be absorbing excess sugar because juice *should* be primarily vegetables and greens with just enough fruit to make it palatable. When I think of my morning juice—kale, carrots, cucumber, celery, lemon, ginger, parsley, beets, and apple—there’s NO way I could eat all of that for breakfast raw or even as a smoothie. It’d be gross for one, and a gut bomb of fiber, slowing me down and making it difficult for my body to absorb all of the nutrition contained within. Instead, I get ONLY the nutrients and enzymes with none of the clutter and it’s like an instant body recharge.
