Is drinking too much V8 bad for you. Even if it is low sodium.

Is drinking too much V8 bad for you. Even if it is low sodium. I am trying to eat 5 or 6 veggies a day, and have been successful for the last few months, but I was wondering if any side effects can occur if you drink too much V8

Welcome to JA - sorry you are going through this, let me opine.

 

If you have high blood pressure or kidney disease or heart disease where you doctor has put you on a low sodium diet, this is BAD. Even low sodium V8 has a lot of salt in it. One can is okay but more than that and you will be significantly increasing your salt intake.

 

Thus, I think one can is fine - as a matter of fact, it is a part of my daily lunch.

 

However, i would NOT advise drinking more than this.

 

Try this, this is what I do:

I make my own veggie mix (this is my taste liking:
- 2 parts celery

- 2 parts carrott

- 1 part cucumber

- 1 radish

- some water

- black pepper

- tabasco sauce.

 

Enjoy...I'm aslo an ametuer chef! :-)
