Hey guys,

I noticed I dont get a lot of veggies in my diet. How do you feel about having a V8 to get my veggie serving for the day? Do any of you guys do this?

I drink it a lot, I love it. It has most of the nutrients of regular veggies, just not the fiber. So get enough fiber from other sources, I would say. But I think it's definitely better than not eating any veggies.

It says "reconstituted vegetable juice". Yummy. I love V8 juice, but you should still eat normal veggies as well. Mmmm...fiber.

Haha, all you V8 lovers, doesn't it have something ludicrous like 200% of your daily allotment of salt? :) Just watch it if you have a genetic disposition to hypertension...

Yeah the original V-8 is loaded with ridiculous amounts of sodium; I do believe they make a new low sodium version.

I like to enjoy a small cup every now and then, But nothing will substitute real raw veggies.

How's that again? What's hypertension?

Oh, and I remember reading something built wrote that said salt was anabolic..so no worries =) i think.

It's fine as long as it's mixed with vodka, tobasco and worcestershire.
