Yeah maybe. I know a lot of fruits are rich in fiber just like veggies. I don't know what else you can get from vegetables that you can't get from fruits. But why skip veggies, they taste good in salads and sandwiches. You just have to pick a good dressing to match it so you can appreciate it.

Yes you can. I don't like vegetables so i eat a lot of fruits which content with a lot of fiber and vitamin. Good for my skin too. And absolutely no fat ( not for durian, avocado). You can replace them or combine.

You can replace one vegetable a day (you should have four vegetable servings and three or four fruit servings), with a fruit serving. Other than that, you should eat vegetables, because they have different nutrients than fruits.

I understand it is never advised that you only take one againts the other. I think this is similar to vitamins and minerals -- both are so important in all bodily functions and must never be replaced by the other. We have to take both veggies and fruits -- both are having unique ways of rejuvenating our bodies for days ahead. Thanks a lot for eating the greens and the violets.
