Our expert says:
Theoretically one can eat very large quantities of these zero- or very-low-kJ foods such as lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, sweet peppers, celery, as well as berries and grapefruit, without them affecting your energy intake. Such foods are excellent fillers and are often rich in protective nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, as well as phytonutrients. Your moderate use of cheese and avo which have higher fat contents, should not increase your total energy intake for the day and they will also ensure that the GI of your supper will be low and not cause cravings later in the evening.
