Vegetables

When cutting, can you eat an unlimited amount of vegetables?
Which are better than others?
Are greens best? (I mainly eat broccoli).

    Well, some veg does contain a lot of calories, sweetcorn, etc...

    However, then again it depends how much you eat.

    Personally, i only like spinach really so just stick to that.

    Fibrous veg -

    Asparagus
    Green beans
    Broccoli
    Brussels sprouts
    Cabbage
    Carrots
    Cauliflower
    Celery
    Cucumbers
    Eggplants
    Lettuce
    Mushrooms
    Green peppers
    Red peppers
    Spinach
    Squash
    Zucchini

    do you just not eat any other veg at all then? just spinach?

    i like everything on the list you made of fiberous veg and every other veg as well. fresh veg is greatttttttttt. but i thought all veg was fiberous? has some veg not got much in the way of fibre?

    I eat more fruit than veg.

    Never been a fan of veg in relation to taste, spinach is about as much as i can manage.

    Do you count calories from veg/salad in your diet?

    especially on a cut?

    I say yes.

    Calories are calories, wherever they're from.


    ...although just to add, it would be dependent on how serious the cut was and possibly at what stage you are at.

    Personally i dont count the calories from veg on cut, even pre contest - as it leads to way to much weighing and its a very imprecise science when it comes to veg where different parts and varieties have different values.
    Instead I allow for them, and then stick to the fololowing as mainstays

    Broccoli
    Cauliflower
    Cabbage
    Onions
    Carrots
    Asparagus
    Spinach
    Greens/kale
    Mushrooms
    And salad items such as
    lettuce (lots of varieties)
    tomatoes
    peppers
    spring onions
    radish

    And tomatoes are fine - and I use Nigepoo's classification - Fruitible

    Not a massive fan of sweetcorn although the mrs loves it.

    And no courgette - I had a very skint summer where they were the bulk of my food intake - literally - because they were on super cheap special offer locally =
    Since then I just cant really stomach them.

    I am not cutting ala bodybuilder so I like lots of veggies - thats my cutting list.
    I bought a hugenormous butternut squash at sainsbos for 2 quid and have it curried and as soup this week - georgeous!

    yep I would
    Obviously not tinned sweetcorn stored in sugary water thinking proper on the cob stuff or that which has only been frozen after being taken off the cob / or baby sweetcorns.

    I don't weigh veg either, even in keto. The NSP values vary a lot from veg to veg that you would have to spend all day calculating. I think the naked eye should be able to tell you whats too much or too little after a little trial and error.

    Unaffiliated.

    eat a variety and dont weigh it, thats like weighing go-faster stripes when calculating power-weight ratio of a car.

    Frozen are great, canned arent as good as theyre overcooked and over boiled i find them tasteless. Bags of 1kg frozen broccoli are under £1, green beans, brussell sprouts. generally all frozen veg is pretty cheap i find, i buy 7 bags of sprouts and that lasts me 7 days as i eat 1KG of each every day
