Dear Mildred
I think that you will lose weight on this diet, but you do realise that it is not balanced and is deficient in a number of nutrients. I also wonder if you are going to be able to sustain it for a long period? It is always better to use a balanced diet that includes foods like vegetables (not just salad ingredients), meat, fish, eggs, other fruit and additional fat-free milk or yoghurt. So you can click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, and then on 'Weight loss' and have a look at some of the slimming diets and compare it to what you are eating at present.
Good luck with the diet
