Default Fruits and Veggies

Hey everyone I started WW last week with my g/f and we're a little confused about the fruits and veges servings. On the 3 month journal it has a few slots for veges and a few for fruit.

We spoke to someone who said it doesn't matter if you eat fruits or veges, as long as you have 5 servings per day. Is that the case? Can I choose to eat 5 servings of fruit, OR 5 servings of vegetables if I choose to do so? Or do I need to balance it out, like 2 or 3 of each?

Thank you

I believe my leader told us it didn't matter. You can get all 5 from fruit or all 5 from Veggies. I usually blend it by eating 2 servings of fruit and 3 veggies.

Good luck!

I've never done WW so can't tell you what is usually done, but in general you would want to mix it up to a certain extent throughout the week if not daily, just because you get a greater variety of nutrients that way. I personally eat more fruit than veggies, but still try to eat a good amount of veggies. I also think that veggies are easier to work into meals because they aren't sweet, and while I love my sweets I don't want them all the time. Veggies are filling during the meal, and fruit can make a nice dessert, and you can get them both in easily that way. Also, keep in mind that on average there is simply more sugar in fruit than veggies, but I guess that is accounted for by the point system (I am unfamiliar with how points are calculated).

Thanks guys, I do switch it up and usually spread it out among fruits and veges but wanted to know in case it doesn't happen one day. Thanks again.

as far as checking off your boxes, you can go any combination of fruit and veg. But i recommend getting a balance. I used to do all fruit. But since I've started eating veggies, I've grown to love them. Veggies require fewer, if any points and can be quite filling! I still love my fruit though too.
