It doesn't matter because you're just going to get fat back when you stop the juice diet. So, meal or no meal, you're really just wasting your time.
It's important to understand why you got the fat you want to lose and then habituate good and proper eating habits so you will not only lose it, but you will keep it off as well.
When you lose fat, you weigh less and, hence, burn fewer calories. Your BMR will be lower so you'll have to eat less on maintenance than when you were heavier. And, losing the fat is only the beginning. Once fat is lost, you have to keep it off for the rest of your life and that may include such difficulties as the "Freshman 15", college drinking culture, soirées and social drinking, pregnancy, somatopause (age-related slowing metabolism), a more sedentary lifestyle, affluence and access to more expensive, tasty, and fattening meals, etc. This truth is born out by the fact that 3 out of 4 adult Americans are overweight or obese. That's means only 1 in 4 adult Americans has a healthy weight. (See: http://www.obesityinamerica.org/statisti... ). It only gets more difficult to stay slim as the years roll by. It never gets easier. So, now is the time to establish good eating habits...the kind that will keep you svelte and fit in the days ahead and for the rest of your life.

Your body has no choice but to follow your brain. So, you should feed your brain a steady diet of good information if you want to be all you can be. It's YOUR body and it has to last a lifetime so it's worth the investment. Don't ask questions of random strangers with no credibility in this or other online forums. Use high quality resources for information instead. The basic principles of health, fitness, and nutrition are not that difficult or hard to understand.
Avoid the internet unless you're using trusted sites in dot gov or dot edu domains. The dot coms are usually driven by profit motive and you'll find bad information in most websties including WebMD, Livestrong, Bobybuilding.com, etc. and especially in this forum and others like it. And, avoid magazine and other cheap commercial informational products about fitness, glamour, muscle building, fashion and fads. Don't be part of the "herd" unless you want to look, feel, and perform like the "herd".
Use books, especially late edition text books on subjects such as nutrition, anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology...especially exercise physiology. You can find excellent information resources at your local public or Uni library or for sale cheap online at Amazon.com and Ebay.com.
Always follow the science. Use critical thinking. Be skeptical and do not believe anything without cross checking it with trusted sources. Grow your personal knowledge base and everything else will follow with relative ease.
You have one body and it has to last a lifetime. It's worth the investment to learn how to care for it properly.
The juice diet is a terrible way to try to lose fat. You need to be eating food and learning how to eat a good and proper diet.
Good luck and good health!!

Originally Answered: How does the v8 juice diet work?
V8 juice is loaded with vitamins and other nutrients, but has very little protein. V8 Juice contains the juices of tomatoes, carrots, celery, beets, parsley, lettuce, watercress and spinach. It does contain a substantial amount of sodium, however, so it is best to get the low sodium variety, which contains about 70% less sodium than the regular brand.
V8 is a good alternative to most drinks, but even better is getting your own juicer and making your own juice. Fitness guru Jack Lalanne swears by freshly made vegetable and fruit juice. Making it yourself spares you the food dyes, preservatives and assorted other added chemicals which are in store-bought juices.
Juicing for a couple of meals a day is excellent, but if you really pack on the calories for dinner, you won't lose weight. After eating so little for breakfast and lunch, you'll have a tendency to do just that for dinner.
I suggest making your larger meal in the middle of the day. Then you'll be able to burn off those calories during the afternoon. Make sure to get a good amount of protein, in the form of fresh fish or poultry. Get your calcium here too. Yogurt or low fat milk is good.
Best of luck with your new diet.
Add red pepper flakes on your pantry. When eaten early within the day, red pepper lowers the amount of food you'll eat later.
Identify the emotional triggers that cause you to seek unhealthy comfort food. Picture your goal weight next time a trigger strikes to allow you to resist temptation.
Take every opportunity to move around, even in smaller ways. Studies show fidgety people tend to be skinnier.
