Vegetables? That 'diet' lacks a whole lot of important stuff. Find a program that tells you the mirconutrient content of your meals and I bet you'd find it misses quite a lot.

I saw a video online. Phil Heath hardly eats any vegetables. Not saying he's the picture of health though.
Also, I drink V8. People claim the cooking process destroys some of the nutrients, but I can't eat raw vegetables anyway due to OAS.

People need to stop claiming cooking destroys nutrients. No. It doesn't. Boiling veges is a no-go because vitamins seep into the water, but cooking does not destroy the nutrients.

Ehh... im not too sure about this. I would cooking and how to cook vegetables will have an effect on micronutrients. To what extent? No clue. Is it detrimental? Doubtful. I would guess that while you will experience some micronutrient loss during cooking, you will also have an increased absorbtion of whats left.

After a quick search
Phenolic compound contents in edible parts of broccoli inflorescences after domestic cooking
Total flavonoid and individual hydroxycinnamoyl derivative (sinapic and caffeoyl-quinic acid derivative) contents were evaluated in the edible portions of freshly harvested broccoli (cv Marathon inflorescences) before and after cooking and in the cooking water. High-pressure boiling, low-pressure boiling (conventional), steaming and microwaving were the four domestic cooking processes used in this work. The predominant sinapic acid derivatives were identified as 1,2,2′-trisinapoylgentiobiose and 1,2′-disinapoyl-2-feruloylgentiobiose. In addition 1,2-diferuloylgentiobiose and 1-sinapoyl-2,2′-diferuloylgentiobiose were also identified in broccoli inflorescences. The results showed large differences among the four treatments in their influence on flavonoid and hydroxycinnamoyl derivative contents in broccoli. Clear disadvantages were detected when broccoli was microwaved, namely high losses of flavonoids (97%), sinapic acid derivatives (74%) and caffeoyl-quinic acid derivatives (87%). Conventional boiling led to a significant loss of flavonoids (66%) from fresh raw broccoli, while high-pressure boiling caused considerable leaching (47%) of caffeoyl-quinic acid derivatives into the cooking water. On the other hand, steaming had minimal effects, in terms of loss, on both flavonoid and hydroxycinnamoyl derivative contents. Therefore we can conclude that a greater quantity of phenolic compounds will be provided by consumption of steamed broccoli as compared with broccoli prepared by other cooking processes.

To the OP question
Body composition wise - it wont make much of a difference
With respect to health and longevity - your gonna have some issues

The issue is is that I have read a lot of articles that claim that you lose almost everything during cooking (basis of lots of raw food diets) but it is not so. This is what I assumed he was referring to.

Do you get tested often for vitamin/ mineral deficiencies? I assume you take a multi and alongside fruit juice and V8 could cover a lot of your bases, but there are a lot of trace minerals + phytochemicals and things not found in muti's that may not be present in your juices and v8.
Theres that issue, and others. That isn't a huge variation in food which has implications for more than just boredom. For one, where are your saturated fats coming from? Iron? Aspartic acids? Cartinine salts? Things like that that are found in meat that you will be missing out on. Whole foods provide you with things you may have not even heard of; imo a little bit of time set aside for cooking can prevent a whole host of problems if you know what you are doing.
That is just my viewpoint, but obviously you are free to do as you like

Liquid diets ---> liquid sh*ts? Can't see that being a solid bowel movement
