Just curious to know how many people on here drink the recommended amount of water a day, 2 litres, and eat 5 + fruit and veg a day. They're now increased the fruit & veg recommendation to 7+ a day so harder still for some.

How many on here can say they do that every day??
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Always try to get 2 lietrs in but never do, 1-2 most days, some days barely any!! Always have a bottle beside me in work. Try to snack on fruit during the day too. Get nowhere near the right amount of proper food

Would only ever have 4 fruit/veg a day at most

I drink copious amounts of water when in work - 3-4 litres a day id reckon. Like a racehorse.

At home, zilch!

Fruit and Veg, i'd hit 5 a day average.

Probably 1-2 litres a day, 3-4 pieces of fruit but I don't eat veg outside of spuds.
With the price of decent fruit these days you'd be out some coin for 7 a day . I'm a cussy funt with fruit, only m&s

Spuds don't count towards the 5 a day. Classified as a 'Starchy food' like pasta or rice.

Probably get the 2 liters of water a day, eat 2 pieces of fruit and a salad for lunch every day so near enough the 5-7 portions i'd say!

Weekends are a different story though....

I eat about 3 pieces of fruit and eat veg every day and probably drink 2 litres of water a day too.

The question is why wouldn't you be eating these foods?
