Healthy eating and weight loss requires vegetables. There's no way around it. Some of us would rather fill our plates with meat and bread. If you discover a "gateway vegetable" you'll start eating them more often.

Nerd Fitness suggests finding one vegetable to introduce into your diet if you're a vegetable hater:

In my mind, all vegetables were disgusting, but the reality was that I hadn't really tried many different kinds. Instead I tried a few and just assumed they were all bad.

So, for starters: stop saying you hate all vegetables. Instead: you simply haven't found a vegetable that you LIKE yet.

I started trying teeny tiny bits of vegetables. If I went out to dinner with friends, I would ask to try some veggies off of their plate. Once I got over the idea, I would order a new vegetable each visit and give it a shot.

Once you find that one vegetable you like, you can branch out from there. It's a way of changing a small eating habit and recognising that you don't have to stick to your belief that you'll never eat vegetables.

Preparation matters too: try grilling them instead of boiling or steaming.
