Hi people!

It's me, Antonia.

I'm translating another cookbook. Can you please help me? What does exactly mean ''high levels of...''? Thank you

p.s. I'm very happy that I can say that South Beach is going to be published in my country this month.

C'mon, Antonia-- re-register with another name. How about 'AntoniaOne'?-- It's much more fun when we know who we're talking to.

High levels of: out of context, it means a high percentage of. There are high levels of dioxin in my granola means that there is a high percentage of it there.

Congratulations on your appearance in print! Does South Beach appropriately credit me? It's 'Mister Micawber, Senior Guru, English Forums.com'.
I'm not kidding, I can't reregister! I don't know why.

Here it is: On this diet you'll be eating high levels of fruits and vegetables.

p.s. Of course it credits you appropriately, THE ONE AND ONLY Mister Micawber.

I'm sorry to hear that, Antonia. Have you tried another email address?
On this diet you'll be eating high levels of fruits and vegetables.

I think it just means "you'll be eating a lot of fruits and vegetables."

Antonia, if you really can't register, maybe you should start putting your name in the subject line of all your posts, like this: (Antonia) high levels of fruits and vegetables.
"High levels of vitamin C", maybe; but "high levels of fruit and vegetables"? It sounds very odd to me.

What would a "low level" of fruit and vegetables be?

"Large quantities", perhaps.
