How many cups of vegetables do u eat per day?

Do any of you have a limit in maintenance or just eat however many without limit? Just added in non-starchy veggies finally after awhile of not having them. I'm currently doing 2 cups per day. Got tired of eggs 3x a day so had to do something definitely different.

Hi, SonataArctica! I don't eat vegetables every day. I sometimes have greens and herbs which I grow. Once in a while I eat cucumbers, green beans, or seaweed, for variety. And once in a while, a bite or two of unsweetened baking chocolate. (I am currently eating very low carb.)

I get my carbs from egg yolks, half-n-half, liver, and my supplements add a few, as well.

I easily get approx. 15g CHO/d without plant matter.

All the best to you.

Not many - but I used to eat between 750g-1.2kg of vegetables and fruit per day (we don't do volume in the UK) so it feels like I'm eating a negligible amount now. I'm mindful of the carb. intake because I use my WOE as part of my migraine management.
