If you drink juices before your breakfast or WITH your breakfast, it will be difficult for the body to process the food that you’ve just eaten, which can thus cause discomfort in the stomach.
Drink smoothies or pulpy juice

Freshly squeezed juices are a source of carbohydrates, while your body prepares for the night regime of metabolism in the evening. By consuming juices in the evening, you risk to have your body store fat.
And the most important rule is to never add sugar to your juices. Also, it is highly recommended to not add salt, for example in tomato juice.
