Beets are in my top 3 starchy tubers I eat to support my energy needs when I train hard. Red potatoes, and sweet potatoes round out that list. I cannot recover with a low carb approach. I can lose a lot of weight but that is not what I am trying to do At this point.
Like any kind of juice I avoid beet juice. It lacks the bulk and many of the nutrients and minerals that whole beets have. I grow them and purchase them fresh. They are easily pickled and a batch doesn't last long.
Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.
