I don't think you can eat too many vegetables, but try to eat a lot of different coloured vegetables, and eat a lot of dark leafy greens. However, if you are eating ALL vegetables and no fruits, whole grains, legumes, proteins, fats... you're not going to do all that well, nutrition wise.

No need to feel guilty about eating tons of vegetables. Like Rabid_Child, I would also integrate beans, whole grains, and root veggies into your diet.

Good for you for eating so many healthy veggies! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
Like the others said, though, you can't live on veggies alone. Make sure that you are eating whole grains, legumes, fruits, some oils (like olive or safflower) for good fats, etc. You just need more variety!

I agree with the others - eat lots of different coloured veggies, round out the diet with legumes, whole grains, fruits and deep green leafy veggies and feast away! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:">

can a person eat too much veg? Like everybody has been saying I would add some beans to the salad to make sure you get enough protein. Vegtables have some Protein but not much.

Vegetables have enough protein in them but by themselves do not have all the necessary amino acids.

I don't think you can eat too many mushrooms. Mushrooms ROCK!! And contrary to popular belief, they are VERY nutritious. And practically with no calories.
