I decided to temporarily take this post down; I really didn't expect it to cause such a stir, especially because other people have been blogging about this topic, too -- but my point is, I didn't intend to cause a ruckus, that's the last thing I wanted (and the last thing I need).
I have a new book to write and need to focus. As much as I have loved all the great questions, sweet emails, and debate about this topic, it's too distracting.
Plus this great (and lengthy) thread on Dr. McDougall's website.
To sum up the original post: "All and all I feel like a smoothie once in a while as a treat is probably fine; and I do think that if the choice is a green smoothie, or no greens at all, it's better to go for the smoothie, but my plan is to eat my greens and fruits whole, whenever possible." (this was my "conclusion" at the end of the original post)
Thanks Herbies for all the support!
Dr. Graham, a Doctor of Health & Author of The 80/10/10 diet released this statement about juicing:
THE BOTTOM LINE: Eating lettuces, celery, cucumbers, and other raw vegetables as provided by Nature; in their whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic state is the very best for us.
