I maybe have some veggies, once a week AT MOST. Does it make a huge difference in your physique if you never eat them? I never saw the need, I've made tons of progress, and never really incorporated them. Also, I see people say they are "calorie-free" but on my asparagus it says 20 calories per serving, and the servings are pretty small. What are the benefits of eating them? What meals are they good to have with?

I should...but it is rare that I do.

It's something I really need to change.


As far as physique....no difference that I have noticed.

Health benefits and preventative factors? Big time.

People always have told me to include it, and over the past few years I've always slacked. Every now and then I'll feel like I'm doing a good thing by having some brocolli or asparagus, but its so rare that it doesn't even make a difference. I can't get into a habit of eating it since it doesn't give me any calories.

Same here, I will only eat something if it had a good amount of calories, otherwise its a waste.

I love salads with tons of dressing, but I don't eat that usually. I usually eat 9oz of broccoli several times a week, green peppers, tomatos, and oranges.

I eat vegetables once a week. I should try to change this though.

I'm not sure how it affected me training, but when I cut down on processed food and added more fresh vegetables, my heartburn and flatulence went away.

I don't eat nearly enough so I supplement with Greens+.

I love veggies and try to eat them everyday. Being the greengiant, it does seem somewhat cannibalistic.

Make a fresh salad with spinach, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, and avacadoes and you're set!

I recently started eating these daily and they are delish!

I couldn't live without my veggies. They're delicious. And consider all the health benefits they provide. Read up bro.

You know if you make yourself a big salad everyday, you can contribute about 500cals towards your daily intake? Add that to your meal and you can easily come close to 1000 cals in one sitting.

Make your sauce with olive oil (130 cals/tbsp!!), vinegar and salt.

Can't make friends with salad?

i have to admit all, that i'm putting about 2 - 3 TB of Hidden Valley Ranch (buttermilk version) on my salad. Haven't gotten an olive oil blend that I like. Someone should start a new thread on a good homeade olive oil dressing recipi (spelling).

Greengiant lives next to Hidden Valley Ranch. It's just down the road.

Here's mine micky:

-Smother the salad in olive oil. I think I counted about 8-9 tbsp once.
-Pour on some vinegar (Either balsamic or red wine). Some people prefer more than others.
-Add 2 pinches of salt
-Oregano!!
-Feta cheese if you have some

I've made it for others and they find it delicious too, so it's not just me. Enjoy.

I made a salad tonight with about 1000 calories! Unreal. 9 tbsp olive oil counted for over 1000 cals alone, plus all the veggies.

I love veggies!! I tried to get a salad everyday with low-fat ranch because my school don't have olive oil as a dressing.

No way I'm eating veggies after reading that! :tuttut: Flatulence is the spice of life! I think being able to turtle the wife with some good protein ones each night outweighs the veggies benefit for me (I mean, I'm taking my multi/calcium/magnesium/fish oil anyway, ain't that enough? LOL)

YMMV :D

I knew this guy in college that had a calvin klien model body. He would never eat veggies - hated them. All he at was whole wheat bread, peanut butter, pasta, burgers, and lots of milk and granola bars. Never saw him eat veggies. We had been working out since like 15/16 years old 3 times a week on weights. Didn't do much cardio. Didn't have much fat at all - totally ripped six pack and good body - but not a massive body.

Eating your veggies now is what is going to keep you healthy in the long run. There may be people who look super fit on the outside and might still be rather fit inside, but over time chances are they will have more problems. Eating veggies gives you essential vitamins and minerals to keep your system running smooth. I try to eat either a huge serving of fruits or vegetables at least twice a day. Fruit with breakfast is easy, because fruit tastes better than most vegetables. Then a huge portion with dinner and I'm set.

Ps. Best way to eat vegetables, just heat up pretty much anything, and then melt butter over it.... :drooling: or olive oil if you're feeling a bit on the healthy side.
