Im bad about my veggies a lot of the times. Ill eat almost nothing but fruit and I CAN tell that I need my vegetables, but I almost always prefer fruit. I'll go eat some romaine before I go to sleep tonight.

Greens wisdom! :D

I ensure I get at least two servings a day every day through my smoothie. When you add in the fruit too, I'm getting about 5 servings of fruits and veggies in one big cup.

Do you eat broccoli? Spinach? Kale? I have lots of ideas for those too.

You mentioned collards. Five things you can do with collards are:

- Dice up other raw veggies and make an avocado dressing and then wrap them in collards

- Shred them and put them in summer rolls in place of lettuce

- Put them in smoothies

- Sautee them with onions, garlic, salt, pepper etc.

- Add them in to salad

There's lots of other things to do with them I'm sure, but I'm still learning myself. I just know how important they are for calcium and stuff.

I think im going to give up. Im injured right now and not sure when Im ever going to touch a weight for upper body. My calories were crazy high yesterday. Even though I like low calories and low body fat i think im just going to give up and start eating like a mad man again.

Its my right elbow(1 of the few) that was really bothering me. I do really high reps and after a workout a couple weeks ago I felt pains like Ive never felt in there and I felt nerve type shocks throughout my forearms and such. it sucked. I took 9 days off and got back to doing basic things monday(bodyweight exercises). I have only felt it a few times since but not unbearable like it was. It seems that I have to resort back to BW exercises and light weight to get back into it which I have all this week. I was just down when i wrote that and kind of scared cause I have never felt that kind of pain before. I feel better and actually killed my arms yest which hurt like hell today so Im better. I will probably start posting my diet again next week or by this weekend. Thanks for asking and being concerned.

Ouch, that's too bad. Yeah it gets me down when I am injured and have to slow down, but it sounds like you will recover from it

So it looks like your eating fairly low calorie and really low protein. How do you retain lean muscle on that kind of a diet?
