Do you include fruit, veg and salad into your daily calories when doing your meal plan.
Can I just fill my boots on veg and salad but watch the fruit, I've been accounting 15 kcals for 100g of lettuce for example, am I being to over the top. Thanks a lot for any replies, I'm new to all this but dedicated and a fast learner so I apologise if I come up with stupid newbie questions. Cheers

I dont bother with recording veg during because I have a similar amount in each meal and its consistant though out and its not a great deal of calories to be concerned with. Fruits should be recorded as they do contain a fair bit of sugar/carbs.

Yep, not veg or salad but dressings and fruit for sure. Onions can add up though.

I tend to include it when i'm cutting as I eat a shitload, and when its stuff like broccoli and green beans etc it soon adds up. When i'm bulking I tend to just use approx measurements.

I never count vegetables; they won't make that much of a difference anyway. And I don't eat fruits...  Embarrassed  But if I did I would track those because they're relatively high fructose.
