Our expert says:
Well I must say that in all the years of working in the field of nutrition, I have never heard that lettuce will make your stomach stretch. Lettuce consists mainly of water about 96% with a bit of carbs (1g/100g) and a bit of fibre (1.1 g/100g) and an energy content of 53kJ per 100g. So how this low-energy, mainly water-containing food could cause your stomach to stretch is beyond me.
Enjoy without worrying
