V8 is probably not unhealthy so if you like it - go ahead.
There is another product that I know of that claims to give you a lot of what you would get form fresh fruits and veggies - wheatgrass juice is packed with phytochemicals.
Click here for a chart that shows a comparison of wheatgrass to actual veggies.

I would think the only thing missing with juice instead of actual veges would be the fiber maybe? Could taking fiber tabs fix that?I do eat veges just not enough to have 5 servings aday.
Dr. Andrew Weil contradicts this notion in many of his works, not least "Taking Care Of Yourself" where he specifically cautions against the kind of "reductionist - tomato in a pill" type of claim we are talking about here.
I don't know what they do to V8 exactly but basically, if it goes through a machine or two... it's less good than it was. If they pasteurize it, which is probably a good idea - say goodbye to most of the goodness. That's the idea I get anyway.

I prefer this over straight V-8 because of the fiber content.

10g carb in 8oz. It should be BG friendly.
I prefer tomato juice with some worcestershire and tabasco.
And of course some Vodka.
My husband decided this recipe would cure my cough...he made a drink and told me to "down it". It cured my cough for about an hour, I could barely breathe or swallow anything! I am not much of a drinker, so he enjoyed it much more than I did.

I find tomato juice too acid.
