    Do you mean that juice is your dinner, and nothing else? If that's the case, it is not sufficient. For dinner, half your plate should be vegetables, then either fish or a chicken leg/breast. Starving your body is not good. You're putting your body into starvation mode, then your whole metabolism will slow down to consume less energy because you are not feeding it properly. Juice is also loaded with artificial sugar, which will make you gain weight.

    Re: Juice at dinner

    I agree that a regular fruit juice for dinner isn't sufficient. I'm not sure if you are talking about a regular fruit juice or if you mean more of a nutrition juice with more nutrients (I've heard of those "green juices" made up of many fruits and veggies).

    I don't drink much juice since it tends to be high in calories and sugar... I'd rather eat an actual piece of fruit instead! If you are wanting to stick with a liquid dinner, I'd suggest a drink with some protein in it. I have whey protein shakes for meals on occasion. I make one large enough to have around 300 calories to make it a meal-size. I make sure my shake has plenty of protein, low in fat, carbs, and sugars.

    Do you have juice at dinner because you are not hungry? Or are you having it because you are trying to lose weight? Many people don't do well with juice during weight loss because of all the sugars (especially since many typical juices have added sugar or aren't 100% natural). I also tend to eat more carb rich foods earlier on in the day to avoid feeling too full at night.

    Yes. You are basically just drinking sugar for dinner.

    I would suggest starting your day off with that juice, though! Juice is a good way to break a fast. I believe fruit should be eaten alone and that way in can better cleanse your digestive system, which stayed up working late while you slept. Another good reason to have that juice in the morning instead is that the sugar jump starts your metabolism for the day, too!

    I basically agree with titan38. Juice is liquid sugar. The sugar is concentrated when the fiber is removed.

    I would call it a highly process food.

    As long as you are getting 8 - 8 oz of liquids you are fine. It might be best to avoid acidic juices in the evening. Acidic juices are better in the morning as they are high in Vitamen C. Also, water is the ultimate liquid so get more of that than any other liquid - beer and soda dehydrate. Thank you

    Depends on what else you've eaten for the day, and the kind of juice it is. Also depends on what exactly you did for the day. For example, if you ate heavy for breakfast and lunch, and you've already met your needed nutrition/kcalorie intake for the day, then it can be all right to end the day with some juice.

    There's some juices out there that are nutritionally dense and can be a great addition to a diet.

    Re: Juice at dinner

    first off, juice is a waste of cals. it is nothing but unhealthy sugar. eat fresh fruit. if that is ALL u have for dinner then no, that is NOT healthy. you need food. try using EVOO with chicken breast for dinner. add some basil and sun dried tomatoes.

    Like most have said - what type of juice?
    The juice I make is basically made of kale, little spinach, some carrots, celery, cucumber, radish, parsley which ever veggies I can find that are as fresh as possible-RAW- and are organic. To this juice I sometimes mix in a veggie protein, some sea veggies or greens power (chlorophyll, spirulina, etc).

    But I am SURE to have had protein earlier in day *turkey, salmon, tuna, chicken, etc. And enough carbs too!

    Fruits I eat raw and fresh. Just a serving. I don't usually do fruits in juices unless they are the really dark grapes and not that often.
