“If you are interested to read an article on juicing by our Registered Dietitian, here it is:”

I think you should change “our” to “what was”.

Your juicer likely removes a majority of the insoluble fiber, 0 Cal.

It likely passes the majority of the soluble fiber, arguments exist in the 2-4 Cal per gram range.

Since a minimal amount of soluble fiber is removed, depending on the efficiency of your juicer, an offset in Calories should be small.

I would recommend that you record the total Cals.

Otherwise, the USDA reports soluble fiber at 4 Cal per gram. There are some arguments that it is actually 2 Cal per gram. If you decide to make that offset, you would need to make the same adjustment in all food containing soluble fiber, juiced or not.

Hello!

Typically, the difference in calories will be minimal so you could track the actual item, like are you doing.

If you prefer, a good estimate for juice is:

1/2 cup veggie juice: 25-50 calories
1/2 cup fruit juice: 60-80 calories

I juice vegetables in the morning. There are lots of vegetables per drink. I've been counting the full calories of the veggies, but it adds up and I know without the fiber I'm not taking in those calories. Whats the best way to track the calories of juicing?
