New studies have suggested that drinking V8 100 percent vegetable juice may be a simple way for people to increase their vegetable intake and may help them manage their weight.
"What we found was that something as simple as drinking your vegetables can be an effective tool in achieving behavior change," she said. Eating more vegetables can be a helpful strategy to manage weight because they are `low-energy-dense`, meaning they have more nutrition for fewer calories. Again, vegetable juice can play a key role. A study from Baylor College of Medicine showed that overweight individuals with metabolic syndrome who drank one to two servings of V8 100 per cent vegetable juice as part of DASH diet lost more weight compared to non-juice drinkers. Over the 12-week study period, the juice drinkers lost an average of four pounds compared to the non-juice drinkers who lost one pound. In addition to weight loss, the vegetable juice drinkers had significant increases of vegetable intake, vitamin C and potassium over the course of the study compared to the non-juice drinkers. "Making vegetable consumption easy is critical because it has so many benefits, from disease prevention to weight management," said John Foreyt, Director of the Behavioural Medicine Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine.
