ive never really focused on taking in the right amount of fruits and veggies daily. i am really going to focus on that as well as cardio at this point. ive been told to include 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies each day. any suggestions of diet plans that include plenty of each? also is it totally safe to ear regular produce or should i go organic?

I just eat normal stuff - easiest way to do it is fitday it so it works out to 25g of fibre.
25 g? Weak built....weak.
I get like 40+ easily everyday. It becomes routine after a while.
Complication breeds desperation.
25g from the PRODUCE, fool! I get more fiber than that from the oats and sweet potatoes.
what if you dont really eat any fruits or veggies? I try eating an apple a day but thats about it.
does "juicing" fruit or turning it to puree take any nutrients from it? also is there certain fruits that are better than others?
also nobody answered my question about organics?
if you can afford it, organic is better some cases. Some cases it doesnt matter, like bananas.
I prefer eating my fruit than drinking it. If you use a juicer, there is high chance you will lose the fiber.
Berries are considered the best fruit in terms of packing a nutritional fruit. In terms of taste, I love mangos. Bananas are good source of carbs and potassium. Apples help in satiety. Pineapples are tasty.
I really dont like many fruits nor veggies is that bad?
Yeah its horrible not likeing fruit.
Organic good, but expensive.
I thought you were suppose to get 1-3 servings of fruit?
Eating a lot of veggies to become 'fuller' a way to go? I eat a lot, and I'm starting to restrict myself to get into a mindset of dieting. I know some will say if it fits into your fitday why not? But can I get more than a generic answer?
You can't eat enough veggies on a cut. Don't restrict veggies on a cut, it will make your cut much more difficult.Eating a lot of veggies to become 'fuller' a way to go?
