So, as I gain weight back I am supposed to keep track of my calories every day to make sure I'm getting enough. Since I live on a stomach tube and strain everything I blend through a mesh bag, I estimate that I'm taking out about a quarter of the original fruits/veggies that I put in by getting rid of the pulp. So, when doing calorie calculations on NutrientData, I've been adding up everything in the green drink and then multiplying that number by 0.75 to account for the removed pulp when calculating calories.
BUT, I'm wondering if this is incorrect and I'm in fact underestimating my caloric intake - are there actually any calories in the pulp/fiber, or are all the calories in the sugar, etc? If I juice a medium carrot, and the carrot is 25 calories, but I remove the pulp, is the juice still 25 calories or is it (25 x 0.75) 18.75 since the pulp is removed?
