The V8 Diet is a type of eating plan that is based on drinking the brand’s vegetable juice as a component of an overall calorie reduced diet. This eating strategy hasn’t been laid out in a way that is entirely clear to many dieters.
What is the V8 Diet?
Several review and dieter feedback posts have indicated that people were quite confused as to how they should proceed with the V8 Diet in order to properly follow it. The primary source of confusion appears to be whether the vegetable juice should be added to meals that are already being consumed, or whether this is designed to be a kind of meal replacement diet.
There is no specific V8 Diet plan produced by the company behind the brand, Campbell Foods. Nor is there an official website for it. That said, there are a considerable number of mentions of it being a strategy.
The diet doesn’t instruct a dieter specifically what he or she should be consuming. Only that this vegetable juice should be a part of it and that calorie reductions are recommended. That said, there aren’t any food or nutritional balance recommendations. The design of meals is not mentioned and there is no indication as to how frequently food should be consumed.
When seeking information about the V8 Diet, the most common content found online is unanswered questions as dieters try to find out what they should be doing.
As a result, despite searching through weight loss websites, forums and certain social media platforms, no evidence could be found that dieters are successfully using this strategy in order to lose weight. There are many mentions of people who have wanted to give it a try, but as a whole they appeared to become frustrated from the lack of guidance. At a certain point, many people have accused the diet of being nothing more than a marketing campaign that has nothing to do with actual diet, nutrition or weight loss.
It is important to note that research does suggest that reducing calorie intake while boosting vegetable consumption will help in the effort to lose weight. However, at the time of the writing of this review, nothing could be found to indicate that using V8 juice specifically could produce these results. Any research found was to indicate that eating whole foods was the key to using vegetables for weight loss, not necessarily a specific product or juice.
