Fresh and frozen, but I avoid canned because of the sodium and the veggies do not taste as good.
Give up everything you love, and everything that tastes good = weight loss! Simple as that!
"Eating what stands on one leg (mushrooms and plant foods) is better than eating what stands on two legs (fowl), which is better than eating what stands on four legs (cows, pigs, and other mammals)"....... Chinese proverb "Food is not love, comfort, or an anxiety pill."
It really depends. My grocery trips usually start in the fresh produce aisle and I impulse-buy whatever is cheap that I know how to deal with.
I do like to always make sure I have frozen broccoli, spinach, peas, green beans, California mix, stir-fry mixtures, and corn-based stew mix. I managed to freeze some tomatoes, but I usually turn to the canned. I keep a few other canned veggies around for emergencies, and hubby has glommed on to the mushrooms so I have to keep buying them.
Fresh, preferably, with top choice being straight from the Farmer's Market. If fresh can't be had, or it's simply more economical to buy frozen, then I'll do that. I never buy canned though - way too much sodium, and it just seems kind of gross to me. The only things I buy canned are tomatoes and beans, and the occasional can of soup.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

I buy mostly canned diced tomatoes because I cook with them a lot. I occasionally buy fresh tomatoes to serve with tacos.

All of the above. I mostly buy fresh and frozen but do get canned, especially beans, on occasion. I live in Minnesota and so fresh isn't always the easiest thing, especially if I want to keep a little variety in my diet.

I typically buy fresh. If it is specifically going in a recipe then I will use frozen.

Fresh as much as possible.

For fruits and veggies which do you prefer and buy. I try to buy fresh but cauliflower was 4.99 a bunch today so I got the frozen on sale a dollar a bag.
