Fresh juice made with raw fruits and vegetables provides the body with an almost instant nutrient and enzyme boost. Raw fruits and vegetables are low in calories, but abundant in vitamins that the body easily assimilates when juiced.

Citrus

Raw grapefruit juice has around 96 calories per 8-oz. serving. Lemon juice and lime juice contain around 60 calories per 8-oz. glass, and 8 oz. of freshly squeezed orange juice has around 110 calories per 8-oz. serving.

Other Fruits

An 8-oz. glass of freshly squeezed fruit juice prepared with a variety of fruits including apple, pineapple, strawberry and grapes would provide around 125 calories.

Vegetables

Drinking fresh vegetable juice allows you to consume an optimal quantity of vegetables in a simple and time-efficient manner. Adding a sweet vegetable such as a carrot can help to make vegetable juice more palatable, especially if you have included vegetables with a bitter taste. An 8-oz. glass of vegetable juice prepared with carrot, celery and parsley contains 90 calories.
