    I am on Step 2, any idea how many sticks of celery equate to 3 dessert spoons full ?

    I would say about an average sized stick.

    It's very low in calories and carbs to make much of a difference, but it is a very healthy choice as it relaxes the muscles of the arteries that regulate your blood pressure. It also has loads of vit C and essential minerals like folacin and potassium.

    Relatively high in fibre too:cool:

    I thought I may be able to have more than 1 stick as it is only 6 calories per stick.

    Obviously this diet is about more than calories !

    Generally with salad I have been having a little more than 3 spoonfuls thinking it wouldnt have too much effect.

    I'm pretty sure that 2, even 3 or 4 sticks would make little difference considering how low they are in anything.

    Just trying to convert the tablespoon to sticks, and reckon it's only about 1 stick.

    Personally, I think it's one of those rare things in the book that can be 'modified';)

    I agree with you on that :)

    I can eat a massive tub of cottage cheese but only have 6 lettuce leaves or so ? (in theory anyway).

    I just want to have enough celery to make it last long enough to eat the cottage cheese, it is a bit bland by itself.

    Hiya

    I'm on AAM and just had my cottage cheese meal with a handful of fresh chives snipped over the top - really oomphed up the flavour of the cheese.

    I'm also really pleased because I HATE most low-fat/light cottage cheese but found a really great lighter version in Lidl next to the regular cottage cheese- the texture is firmer, less sloppy, less aftertaste, fills me up more and feels more like a real meal! Try it out if you go past a store!

    (Nooo, I don't work for 'em ;) )

    No idea! But did you know they say 'you use up more calories eating the stuff than what is actually in it'...xxx
