  1. great recipe! should i eat this salad in the days that i don’t go to the gym or whenever i want? i try to lose 5 lbs.

    1. You can eat it whenever you want, it is perfect for the diet. You shoudn’t worry about salads, the most important ingredient to avoid is the meat and the fats. If you want to lose weight it’s preferable to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, to drink at least 2 litres of water per day.

      Anyway, you can eat anything you wish, but do not exceed! This is the secret.
