Is it really necessary to vegetables or can I get the same benefits by taking a supplement?

Vegetables versus vitamins

If you are not a veggie person, you still can get most of the benefits by eating 5 to 7 servings of fresh fruits. The only two problems are: 1)you can not be on a low carb diet this way because vitamin for vitamin, fruits contain more calories, and 2) you will have the vitamins and minerals packed together with more calories than if you were eating vegetables. To compensate for the extra calories, you should cut down on "bad" (saturated) fats and exercise more. On a low carb diet, choose berries or artificially sweetened avocados. When all is done, a good one-a-day multivitamin pill wouldn't hurt!
