You know fruit and vegetables are packed with important nutrients, but they're also a critical part of your body-changing diet. Even without counting their countless nutritional benefits, just the fiber they provide keeps you from overeating other calorific stuff. In short fruit and vegetables act like doormen in your belly, keeping the riffraff out.

If you hate vegetables, hide them. Puree them and add them to sauces or soups; the more you chop, the less you taste, and the easier it is for your body to absorb nutrients. Cooking (with just a little fat) aids absorption. Just don't fry or smother them in greasy gravy.

One warning note: Stick to whole fruit. Juices are nothing better than sugar water and heir calories quickly add up.
