If one does not eat many greens, what type of vitamins would one need in their diet? Specific dosage would be apprecitaed. All I could think of is fiber and vit a?

Best and easiest thing to do is buy a multi-vitamin. Take the reccommended dosage.

I don't know the answer to your question off the top of my head, but I'd recommend taking multi's anyway, whether you eat greens or not.

Im a huge beliver in Vitimins and I believe the've really help me make some good gains over the past 12 months (in both my lifts and general muscle mass).

They perform such bodily functions as helping your body make proper use of protein and carbs and aid in the recovery process. Their functionality in the body is a never ending list.

I would supplement with the following :-

400iu Vit E
2000MG of Vit C
500MG Magnisium
50MG Zinc
A Good General Mulit Vit
A Good Genreal B Multi Vit (The B's are very important)

RDA Mean sh!t. Thats just the bare minimum needed to survive.

Vegetables are the best source of vit A.
The most important is not that they provide many vitamins,because you can take your multivit and you're ok,but that they provide many trace elements and metals,highly needed by the body.

How do you afford all of those vitamins Yates? I already spend 100+ a month on food and protein supplements. I take a cheap multi-vitamin now. How much does all that cost you a month?

Not that much. It normally last me for a couple of months or more.

100 tabs in each bottle, 2 a day = 50 days

I seriously think it's a sound investment. Number one on my supplement list.

1) Vits
2) Protein Powder (only for convenience)
3) Flax Seed Oil

Are there certain brands you prefer? Or does it matter?

I get mine from a health store called Holland and Barret, but it doesn't matter.

The B vits should say something like 2800% RDA for all B's. B1 B3 B5 etc etc.
