V8 Juice

Elaine writes:
The V8 lists tomato paste. I have listed tomato paste as being illegal. Dr. Haas told me many years ago, that tomato paste has added carbs. If you are doing very well, it may not be enough to bother you. However, tomato juice can be doctored up with lemon, lime, or a drop of tobasco.

V8 is not really appropriate for newbies. It contains beet juice, which has sucrose. There is also the tomato paste issue. If you've been on the diet for a while and are symptom-free, you can try it and see how you do.
