I dont eat any fruits and very few vegetables. I was wondering if you could possible tell me some good supplement sources or maybe ways to acquire the taste and consistency of fruits and vegetables. I really need some information because I really hate being so small and I am 21 only 150lbs at 6’ even.

Antioxidant qualities provided by the phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables are best acquired through whole food consumption, not as a pill or an extract. So instead of buying expensive nutritional supplements, eat a diverse diet incorporating lots of fruits and vegetables which contain the widest variety of protective compounds of all food groups.

Remember that there is not a magic pill to protect you from the development of several leading causes of death. However, eating a balanced diet, which includes adequate fruits and vegetables, is the best way to keep you protected! So it’s important to consume your recommended amount each and every day to protect your body from many diseases and disorders.  Try different fruits and vegetables to find the ones you like. And try them canned, frozen, fresh, dried, or even as 100% juice  — they can taste different or have different textures, some that you might prefer over others. Try our healthy recipes for tasty ways to enjoy fruits and vegetables!
