    Hypothetical Question: Which would you live without if you had to? Fruits or Veggies

    If you had to live without either fruits or vegetables, for lets say a year, which would you choose to give up?

    I would choose fruits since vegetables are primary staples of a majority of meals. I couldn't live without my taters, corn, or green beans.


    Also a tomato is considered a fruit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato#...r_vegetable.3F

    And one other thing to note; you would still be able to take vitamin supplement pills to cover the nutrition you would lose by giving up either fruits or veggies.

    I like both very much so its a hard one! Even though i really do not want to, I'd pick living without fruit! Meals are just too plain without veggies

    Tomato is actually a berry, not a vegetable:P So if I could still eat tomatoes, I'd have no problem giving up vegetables. I'm a vegetarian and funnily enough, I almost don't eat them even now.

    I've eaten something like 3 vegetables in the past 15 years... Since I don't really want to die from malnutrition I kinda need fruits and stuff like that.

    Are potatoes vegetables in your hypothetical question ?

    Yes rice and wheat (pasta) are considered grains, so you could eat those.

    While I dearly love my corn and potatoes, I think as a whole I could do without veggies the most. I like a lot more fruits than I do veggies, though I do eat a lot of corn and potatoes lol.

    Actually, I guess I take that back. I eat more salsa than anything. So even though I already voted to get rid of Veggies, I have to say I'd rather get rid of fruits.

    wtf are you going to eat if you totally give up vegetables? That's no bread, rice, pasta, potatoes... Losing tomatoes and bananas would kinda suck, but at least I'd still get burgers, fries, spaghetti....

    I am a veggie and vegetables are a way bigger and more important part of my diet, so I'd have to say goodbye to fruit. It'd suck to basically lose all nice flavoured drinks but, I'd rather that than pretty much starve. xD

    I'm allergic to most fruits, so for me it's a no-brainer. :P

    I almost never eat either anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

    Fruits to me are snacks or sweeteners that offer some nutritional value but can be replaced

    Vegetables are essential sources of minerals and fibre and are 100% needed for anyone wanting to stay healthy.
