Natural vegetables don’t contain a lot of fiber unless you consume them in crazy amounts. I’ll give you a sampling:
1. Green leaf lettuce — 1.3 grams of fiber per 100 grams;
2. Boiled potatoes without skin — 1.4 grams of fiber per 100 grams;
3. Cucumbers, peeled, raw — 0.7 g/100 g
4. Row tomatoes, with skin — 1.2g/100 g
5. Onions, raw — 1.7 g/100 g
6. Cooked broccoli — 3.3 g /100 g
7. Carrorts, raw — 2.8 g/100 g
So, as you can see, even the foods that are considered fiber-heavy, such as broccoli or carrots, are pretty moderate. So if you eat almost 2 lbs of the above vegetables, you still will get only 12.4 grams of fiber.
That’s why I don’t say anywhere that you shouldn’t eat vegetables, and I do prefer vegetables to fruits because they contain significantly less sugar.
