I like vegetables because they always add something to a dish and without them you wouldnt be able to hit your daily vitmains/minerals.

So how much do you eat per day on average as i dont want to eat too much like kale (where i get thyroid problems) or spinach (oxalic acid).

Its like every food has a problem with it and it makes it more difficult to choose espically since im prone to acne and other health problems!

Could use your help guys!

Haven't run into too many vegetables? Am I missing something? Over a kilo of veggies is loads!

Right now for myself any vegetables is too much vegetables, apart from sweet potatoes which seem fine. Elimination diet currently under way, absolutely best way to go about it I reckon. Starting on red meat & potatoes for a couple weeks then will start introducing...

Maybe a bit tmi but while we're on the subject... the vegetarian meals ive had, mainly like rice & beans, wel it can feel good when you go the next day, a big shit can be very satisfying, there i said it. Im also currently finding out that meat is probably the best thing going for digestive health, at least for me, which is so against what we're told!

I totally agree, dragonfly. I don't think fiber is necessary for us at all. I just eat them to break up the monotony in my meals.

+1. Veggies are over-rated. Liver, seafood and organ meats are where it's at.

Hi there...Interesting question! Personally i love vegetables too and find it hard to stop eating them! However i'm not convinced you can over eat them.. Sure if you eat carrott's 5 times a day and nothing else you may turn orange but i think as long as you vary your diet with fresh meats and fruit too i don't think you will have any big problems! I was once told that 3 healer table spoons of veg is 1 of your 5 a day (give or take) so maybe work around measuring out your veg a little!? I personally eat about 8 portions of veg a day :) Hope this may be of some help to you :) Ryan

Can't say I've run into too many vegetables in my experience. Generally I'm eating around 2-3 pounds of plant matter daily, not all fiberous, but a good amount of it is.

I usually eat 1 cup a day of cooked veggies. my go-to is a mixture of zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, and onions cooked in bacon fat with a dash of turmeric. i sometimes add a handful of baby spinach in there if i have it, but i don't include any raw veggies or greens in my diet.

i basically eat the veggies for flavor and added texture in my meat dishes. i don't see a point to eat any more since that just makes my bowel movements bigger and i like small ones.

The only plants that don't want you dead (or not eating them) are fruits, so it's probably a good idea to stick to a bit cooked or fermented veg for the nutrients, taste, and breaking up the monotony.

I personally feel like you can't have too many vegetables but that's just how my body responds to them... My dad actually had problems with his back (because of oxalic acid) after eating 2 bins of spinach a week for a few months. Do you shove nutrients off your plate with veggies? If so, just eat the rest of your meal first and then have as many vegetables as you'd like!

Anecdotes of people OD'ing on vegetable-derived nutrients are few and far between. I eat as much veg as I can afford or until I feel full, whichever comes first. Mostly cooked, some raw. Of course, your mileage will vary; I suggest trial and error to determine the optimal vegetable plan for your body. There's nothing resembling a concrete answer.
