Lettuce and cucumber

Hi there,
I heard the most strangest thing a couple of days ago. I was told that lettuce and cucumber are bad for us as they do not digest and stay in our systems for a long period of time and also that salad freaks on diets are fooling themselves. Is this true or not?

Thank you
Don.

Dear Don
No this is just another 'Food myth'. Lettuce and cucumber are digested just as well as other foods.
