    substitutes for veggies


    hey.. i know that vegtables are a great source of fiber and a way to blunt hunger cravings.. especially when on a cutting diet, the only problem is i dont like any vegtables.. is there any valuable supplement that can be considered comperable?
    v-8, fiber pills, etc.

    Greens +
    Biotest Superfood

    There are a ton of good greens supplements out there. Superfood is expensive but seems to work well.

    Can you elaborate more on what exactly these "superfoods" are?

    Powders with concentrated bits of vegetables, fruits, seaweeds etc in them. They are an aquired taste. They literally taste like drinking grass.

    If you're just looking for fiber there's always psyllium or apple pectin.

    Look into Biotest Superfood. I cannot post a URL as NP does not carry it. Great product.

    Something tells me if someone does not liek to eat vegies then a grass drink might not be the best hehe!
    Truth is per cost at least to get the total package you just have to eat them.
    What I might suggest to you is since you don't like to eat them (nor do I so much) is find creative things to do with them. Mind you keep it healthy but dips and topping to go with. It can really add alot to the blan taste or feeling of eating it raw.

    i love eating veggies but even that gets old after a while when trying to cut. try packaged veggies with cheese or garlic flavoring. these taste great and actually allow me to eat less, stay full longer, and not significantly add to overall calorie intake. check the nutrition labels though because there are ones where the extra flavor adds like 10 calories and others add like 100

    Experiment with different vegetables and find something you like. Some people just don't like the taste of an apple, but can eat an orange without the slightest complaint. Browse the supermarket and I'm sure you'll find something you have yet to taste... and you just might like it.

    spiralina powder, it tastes so bad its made me dry reach. you can parachute it or get it in pellets it has protien in it as well very good before a workout.

    Like Auto said, you can parachute it very easily. If you have a capping kit, you could go that route as well. Which ever you prefer (or if you can mask it in a protein shake, try it that way as well). However, a capping kit will be useful in many situations, and also is very cost effective.
