    I'm trying to lose weight and get healthy but its difficult without eating veg.

    I am eating so much fruit i'm going to look like a grape and i've eaten so many strawberrys i've developed an allergy lol (face is covered in big red blotches!)

    I've tried to eat vet but it just makes me throw up and it has since i was 4!

    Anyone got any suggestions please?

      There is a cookbook by Jessica Seinfeld (I think) that is a children's cookbook. All of the recipes are very recognizable foods, but she hides veggies in them. You might want to give that a shot.

      Can you eat raw veggies? I know a lot of people don't like cooked ones, but usually because they have been served the wrong way--cooked to death. Try raw with a low-fat dip or hummus or just lightly steamed.,

        I've tried them raw and its not as instant a reaction as if they are cooked, thanks for that tho i'll look for that book.

        I'm sure i'm regressing as I get older lol I'll have to get FI do it when he's home otherwise if i know they are in there i know i won't eat them - i'm a right PITA and its a nightmare going out to eat lol

        Thanks tho x

          Try "Deceptively Delicious" or "The Sneaky Chef"

            One of my prep cooks hated veggies too. She would sprinkle a little sugar over EVERYTHING before she would eat it! LOL

              Thanks I will definitely.

              I wouldn't do that but I used to eat mashed potatoe with a cup of water in one hand a fork in the other just to make it go down lol

              I love all meat but veg forget it, if I go out FI goes nuts lol I end up saying I want this with none of this or this or this or this and you can guarantee when it comes to the table its either got green stuff on or coleslaw!! yak! i never get what I actually order and I wish I had a £1 for everytime I've not eaten it and left,got into the car and burst into tears lol

              Thanks for the suggestions I'll defo look into it x

                is it all vegetables that you hate?

                Is it like an allergic reaction or just like a reaction to hating vegetables (texture, taste, etc..)?

                  Have you tried Naked Juice? The green Machine looks scary, but tastes like fruit juice. It's really good. I know this doesn't solve all your problems, but it'll help you get some of your veggies? Also they have the "greens" supplements (at healthfood stores). You can mix it with water or juice to supplement some of your veggies.

                    Yep all of them. The only potato I can eat is in chip form and i'm even funny with some chips! lol

                    I'm not sure if it is an allergic reaction to be honest, I'm allergic to flowers, plants trees and pretty much anything that grows so it could be. I also don't like the texture andI have to really stop myself retching when I see FI eating some stuff - its madness I just can't eat somethings i'm sure its a form of OCD lmao

                    So i'm loading myself up with fruit and hoping that helps
