I am 15 years old If i want to only eat fruits and vegetables what portions should i eat for breakfast lunch and dinner ?

The amount of fruits and vegetables you need each day depends not only on your age, but your gender and activity level as well.  A 15 year old moderately active girl needs to eat 4-1/2 cups of fruits and vegetables throughout the day.  A boy the same age and activity level needs 5 to 6 cups of fruits and vegetables a day. While fruits and vegetables provide many important vitamins and minerals for growing bodies, they do not provide all the nutrients needed by someone your age. A healthy diet includes foods from all food groups. Unfortunately, most people do not eat enough fruits and vegetables – aim for about half our food intake to come from fruits and vegetabls (including beans like pinto beans, chick peas, or kidney beans).
