Raw beets is by far better than cooked one and so is the juice. Being russian I hate to admit but I hate beets, how did ever survived there. Try the juice you'll be surprised, I almost guarantee.

+1 I LOVE beet juice. Try a beet in your veggie mix, you'll be surprised and it is good for you. Wash and peel it first, is my suggestion.

yes I have been having a slim fast for breakfast, raw veggies, a serving of boiled or grilled chicken, and a serving of a cheese for lunch. Then I juice about a pound of veggies and sometimes fruit for dinner. If I get hungery between meals I have and apple or pear. I have felt a huge change in the way I feel! My muscles don't ache, no more headaches, NO MORE STOMACH ISSUES!!!(I have had problems with digestion all my life), I am more focused, alert, happier for no real reason, and since I started(on Tuesday) I have lost 7LBS! I am convinced that this is the best thing I have ever done for my body and will continue this habit in some capacity for the rest of my life.

oh and I will at least try the beets. I will buy one tomorrow.

With the other veggies you won't even notice the beet...make sure to add some parsley!

I always add about 20 sprigs of parsley every time I juice

Adam and Eve were fruitarians, and you remember how that turned out?
