the specific carbohydrate diet limits carbohydrates. limits carbohydrates (sugar) especially long sugars. With regard to the shorter sugars such as what is in juice, then the idea is to substitute honey and so this would be choosing another drink besides juice, So any drink that you want to add honey would avoid the carbohydrate sugars in juice.
also you know that Vitamin C is a laxative so juice is a laxative.
SCD does not limit the amount of carbs, just the types of carbs. Monosaccharides (this includes 100% fruit juice) are legal. Disaccharides (sugar and lactose) and polysaccharides (starch and gluten) are not legal.
