    Question is it possible to eat TOO much salad?

    lately ive been eating A LOT of organic dark green salad. sometimes with other things added, like tomatoes, chickpeas, carrots etc. but a lot of the time its just plain greens with dressing.

    ive been eating about 3 or 4 bowls of it a day. i get a craving for it and its what i love to snack on lately. (this coming from someone who only used to snack on chips/crisps or fries/chips!)

    can you eat too much dark greens or is it really not possible? its got a lot of nutrients and its very low in calories, but high in iron, calcium, vitamin a and vitamin c, as well as antioxidants so im sure im doing my body some good with all the raw greens, but i wanted someone elses perspective on it.

    i realize you can eat too much salad if its got unhealthy high fat ingredients added, but thats not the case here.

    Too many raw greens make me curl up in a ball with really bad gas cramps.
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    Unless your guts complain, eat all the fruit and veg you want. Unless you eat three times your body weight a day you cannot have too much fruit and veg.

    The fact your body is going nuts for it probably means it's craving the nutrients in it.

    So long as you're not filling up on salad so much for a prolonged period of time that you don't have an appetite for a sensible amount of fat and protein I don't see the problem.

    i havent had any problems regarding my digestive system since eating it a lot. ive been going to the washroom normal, and no cramps or anything. and its only 30 calories for 4 cups of it so im clearly not eating 3 times my body weight!! and honestly the salads not filling for me so im still eating lots of other things as well. so i guess its okay than! woohoo. ive never liked salad so much until i found the fresh herb salad by earthbound organics. god its good!
