This is one of the reasons I went vegetarian. I used to eat nothing but chicken. I couldn't control my portions. I just wanted MEAT + STARCH and maybe an itty bitty veggie if my mother forced me. I realized I just had to cut the meat completely in order to force myself to branch out and eat something else. I couldn't eat those potatoes by themselves! It worked, and I feel so much better now! I get way more variety in my diet, as well as more and better nutrients. It's easier for me to maintain a healthy weight, and I have more energy and less digestive upset.

Of course, I maintain the vegetarian lifestyle for many reasons, but this is definitely one of the biggest!

It is true that veggies are great and you can't really have too many, but variety is important too! Anything in too high amounts can be unhealthy, so no matter what kind of diet you choose to follow, mix it up!

I have issues eating veggies mainly because I still have that little kid mentality when it comes to eating them. I am trying to mix it up so I could learn to love them.

Mostly I consider myself a fruit person.

I got quite lucky and liked/ate almost every veggie from a young age. Except asparagus. Won't do those stalks.

I do my own rendition of paleo, so I mainly eat veggies and lean protein all day long. If not for the joy of eating veggies, than for the way they make me feel!

I've heard of people/ steaming/cooking some veggies in chicken broth to make the more palatable. Broccoli is a big one for that.
