How many "A Day" do you eat?
This is something that is obsessing me at the moment (yes I have more important concerns but, hey, everything is relative). When I look at my food diary at the end of the day I tot up how many portions of fruit and veg I have had. As a child of the 5 a day generation I try to make sure I have at least 7 different varieties of fruit and veg (inc baked beans where I eat them). This is now pretty average for me and makes me think that if EVERYONE should have 5 surely as a weight loser I should increase upon that.
Apparently it's the governments line based on the WHO recommendation of at least 400g of fruit and veg a day. That threw me slightly because if I were to weigh all my fruit and veg I am guaranteed to at least double that. Particularly with the SW 1/3 plate rule.
Does everyone one manage to get their 5 a day? Or more? Do you care? Do you count two servings of the same food as one or two (I count it as one even if in different forms eg raw and cooked carrot) Answers on a postcard (or posted below will be just fine thank you very much for coming)
