How many green veg do you eat a day?


 
 I've been eating a lot more veg lately, and wondering how much you guys eat a day?  (I havent included patato's or carrots in this)
 
 I dont really like veg that much but have been eating broccoli quite a bit.  I think I may have been over doing it a bit as I'm getting through about 1kg bag (pre frozen) in day. 4 of the main meals I have around 250g per meal.
 
I think there are around 220g per 'cup' measure, would be interested in hearing how much you consume on a daily basis?  (I have used Cups as the measure)
 
 Can eating this much veg add belly weight?  I'm now going to be cutting this down to half a bag a day as I think I may have gone a bit o.t.t with it.

    I  aim for 10 portions but end up with about 7-8 portions a day.
    My portion sizes are always generous (eg 100g berries instead of 75g which is regarded as 1 portion) so probably not far of 10 a day.

    I thought they might be causing a bit of bloat?  my diet else where is the same so i just put it down to over doing these..  and not digesting them as fast as I'm eating them.

    that might be anyother carbs your eating with the meal causing that, especialy if its wheat

    Handful of Broccoli 2-3 times a day, pile of sweet corn once a day (and Sweet potato 2-3 times a day)
     
    Probably not enough. But I doubt I'd increase it.

    What's the worst that could happen?

    I've not had any greens or veg for 29 years!
