Not a fan of Vegetables overall but eat plenty of potato due to it's high carb count & mash tatie is nice. After Potato I go for carrot then if I can be bothered might eat a little cucumber or celery.

A better question would be what veggies to stay away from because most of them are absolutely great.

I hope, for your sake, that you're trolling. And if you think a chronic deficiency in key vitamins and minerals won't affect muscular hypertrophy, you are sadly mistaken. Lastly, given the obstructive mineral interactions and poor kinetics of essentially every multivitamin supplement available, you're not really helping your cause by taking one.

we've evolved from apes, our bodies will adapt to whatever it faces, ive got my own proof, youve got test in your system?, eat enough calories / protein?, work out half decent?, you'll build muscle no matter what.

This is one of those chicken and egg things: are you a dumbass because you are micronutrient-deficient, or are you micronutrient-deficient because you are a dumbass?

So our bodies will adapt to anything? What if I cut out essential amino acids from your diet? What if I removed all potassium from your diet? What if you suffered from chronic, incurable disease because of your pis poor diet? Adapt to that.

indeed i do eat that much. gotta eat big to get big ;) it flatters me you remember me AlwayTryin, i see you quite often in the nutrition forum, and while ill attempt to help out people, when it comes to veggies, i just give my opinion on whats worked for me

i also dont believe any pro's would eat veggies, off camera, they eat over 8k calories a day, do you think they have room for veggies in their stomach, its a fkn battle to eat 6.5k

I eat a lot of things like lettuce, kale, collards, spinach, dandelion green, beets and their leaves, carrots and their leaves, etc. And of course many other ones, I just change it up as to whats affordable and in season.

To answer the OP's question the most nutrient dense vegetables are those with most colour intensity (eg dark green like broccoli etc). Avoid potato. Berries are lower in sugar than other fruits. I just try to have a variety of different veg over the week (different colour veg means different vitamins and minerals).

Wrong. Humans didn't evolve from apes; apes, more specifically chimpanzees and bonobos and, considering them as a natural group, are the closest to humans for we share a common ancestor.

TBH guys I'm with Pladzor on this. When bulking I really don't go out of my way to eat any vegetables at all.

Sure I may have a few vegetables but it's more like that slice of lettuce in a burger/sandwich/burrito or the little veggies that come in a soup/pasta/pizza etc or maybe when I go out and I'm hungry but don't want something too big I may have a fruit/vegetable smoothie. But like... I'll never order or make myself a salad lol.

I get most my micronutrients and fiber from a multivitamin and greens supplement. I do have plenty of fruits and whole grains though.

When cutting the only reason I have more vegetables is because they tend to fill me up easy and are very calorie dense.

I read a study once that said veggies increases mitichondrial count and activity, leading to better performance, but I just skimmed through it so I don't know if it was a reputable study or not.

I don't know, and I've never seen anyone suggest that. Potatos are a great source of vitamins, taste great and go with a lot of other foods and are very versatile. THey are more micronutrient dense than a lot of other vegetables and fruit.I guess people see potato and think fries. Even suggesting they're unhealthy is erroneous a lot of the time.

Potatos = healthy
EVOO = healthy

Potatos + EVOO = unhealthy?? Just an example. You can use a lot of different oils for good fries.

I don't eat too many veggies either. Probably need more.

I love Spinach and musrooms though. Can't get enough of those.

I also eat broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots but only a few times a week.

I like everything except celery, but I'd just rather eat potatoes, rice, beans, meat, and ice cream.

You only absorb like 20% of your multivitamins if that. The veggies are there to just be even more beneficial for nutrients and absorption.

Also, an assortment of veggies contain more and different types of nutrients than just from multivitamins.

EVOO not being one of them. The smoke point is too low to make actual French fries. You could always pan fry them, but they wouldn't be French fries then :)

Everything else martial said was spot on though. They are very nutrient dense, IF you eat them with the peel, people just avoid them because they're high in carbs.
