    How many ounces of veggies a day?

    I see online that they refer to vegetables as cups, but I'm curious. Does anyone know the recomended amount of vegetabeles one should take in a day by the american heart association?

    Currently I'm taking in 8 ounces of vegetables a day and want to know how close I am to the recomended amount of vegetables in a day.

    I don't know what's the recommended amount and even if I did it wouldn't do you much good as these food recommendations are usually way off. Especially for the bodybuilding/very active consumers.

    I eat at least 14 ounces of fibrous veggies to get as much minerals and vitamins (especially vitamin A, kinda hard to get that sucker through food) as possible and I think another ~8 ounces would do me nothing but good. When bulking I also go through the same amount of starchy veggies like chickpeas, beans and peas a day... Feels good man, can't wait to get back at it!

    One cup = 8 fluid ounces. Eight ounces by dry weight varies, it may not be a cup or it may be more. AFAIK, veg are usually measured by cups rather than ounces because based on density, different veg weighs different amounts. A serving of lettuce would be much lighter by ounces than a serving of raw carrots, for example. A better explanation can be found here:
    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_d...s_are_in_a_cup
    That, plus I would imagine it's easier and as close to accurate as we'll get from most sources since most Americans do at least have cup measures in their home, if not a food scale.

    You can search for food in grams here:
    http://www.nutrition.gov/nal_display...11&tax_level=1 (select look up calories or nutrients in food on right hand navigation bar)
    nutritiondata.com might also have the conversion, but I can't get in right now to check for you.

    That would take me over an hour to consume that much veggies. I'm finding they go down easy if you steam them in tin foil in the oven.
