Ah science! Yes, the broccoli might have as many calories as less carb intensive alternatives, but those salads and broccoli have the advantage of providing fiber!

Kind of true...
So 3 things I would normally say...
#1 What is the goal and does that fit the goal? When adding anything to an eating plan
more protein, more carbs, more fat even more veggies...what is the goal and does that fit into the goal?

#2 Compliance...just because something is "good for you"..doesn't mean their will be how can we get that done?

#3 in regards to fruits and veggies
"A landmark study on the topic by Donald Davis and his team of researchers from the University of Texas (UT) at Austin’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry was published in December 2004 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. They studied U.S. Department of Agriculture nutritional data from both 1950 and 1999 for 43 different vegetables and fruits, finding “reliable declines” in the amount of protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and vitamin C over the past half century"
"A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent. A similar study of British nutrient data from 1930 to 1980, published in the British Food Journal,found that in 20 vegetables the average calcium content had declined 19 percent; iron 22 percent; and potassium 14 percent. Yet another study concluded that one would have to eat eight oranges today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our grandparents would have gotten from one."

Fruits and veggies are not what they used to be

Astonishing that nutrient density has decreased over time! Im interested in reading their hypothesis as to the reasons, but was there any indication that the fiber content had declined as well? I mean, the fiber benefit was the main point of difference and benefit relating to weight and health given the same calories in your example.
