Carl, I'm so sorry! Is this a diet for a particular health purpose? Not trying to be nosy . . . .
I know that on Weight Watchers, lettuce is an item that can be consumed in unlimited quantities. I don't understand why you wouldn't be able to eat salad, as long as you don't load it with a ton of creamy dressing. So cukes and celery are full of water and don't "fill the void"? So why can't you eat as much as you want? Obviously the drink isn't filling the void, either!
It's making me mad, just thinking about it!!
So . . . after you read this, I guess you better steer clear of this thread for eight weeks .
