I don't understand this.
When you juice fruits and vegetables, what you're doing is taking all the sugar
, water, and vitamins from the food, and leaving out all the fibre (the filling part). You're also almost completely eliminating fat and protein from your diet if you don't eat other food.
The sugar in fruit isn't any different from the sugar in plain old white sugar (a simple carb). So you haven't eliminated simple carbs at all if you're juicing - in fact, you're getting ALL your calories from simple carbs.
I'm not saying the diet is no good, or not beneficial; I'm sure all those vitamins are good for you. But it's no way to get rid of sugar cravings (unless "getting rid of" means "satisfying").
