Ask a Dietitian: Too Much Veggies?
Q: Am I really supposed to eat nine fruits and vegetables each day? How is that possible?
A: The answer largely depends on your age, if you are a male or female, your height, weight, and your level of physical activity. I would also like to encourage you to think about your fruits and vegetables in terms of cups per day, which makes getting all the recommended fruits and vegetables seem much more achievable.
