Why you shouldnt stock up on celery

The celery fad diet

Coffee, celery, and cigarettes. Supposedly that's what models lived on, back in the day, to stay so (unhealthily) skinny.

Celery is a healthy veggie or snack, but not when you rely on eating tons of it, or use it to replace other foods in an effort to slim down.

Why celery isn't a good diet strategy

Celery is cited as a negative-calorie food, because it's mainly water and fibre.

It doesn't contain those important nutrients our bodies need for energy. So you might drop a few dress sizes, but you won't be able to walk to your cupboard without huffing and puffing - let alone up a flight of stairs!

Bottom line: Our bodies need daily nutrients and carbohydrate fuel, in order to keep them functioning properly. So, enjoy celery as part of your healthy eating regime - in salads and soups, etc. But don't rely on eating tons of it in an effort to shed weight.
