Restaurants know this too - and many have been offering healthy options for a while now, with obesity levels skyrocketing and what not. Yet, the other day at Red Robin with a group of friends I couldn't believe the "healthy alternative" that was offered on the menu - but I was even more shocked when one of my friends ordered it.
Behold, an easy way to cut down on carbs (?):
Now, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most people don't go to a burger restaurant that serves bottomless steak fries with the intent of shedding a few pounds.
Yet, I think that this might be the secret solution to weight loss that people have been relentlessly searching for decades. Get this: replace everything with lettuce.
Why stop with the Lettuce posing as a hamburger bun? It's a versatile vegetable:
1. Lettuce pizza - who really likes the crust anyway?
2. Fettucini and *lettuce* - Alfredo sauce, who needs it? Lettuce sauce? Now that's more like it. Noodles coated with crunchy watery goodness that only iceberg can manage.
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen - the secret to weight loss - replace anything that has calories (and taste) with lettuce! It's so easy a rabbit could do it! I honestly don't see any flaws in this fool-proof plan...
What's that? Oh yeah, lettuce sucks. Never mind. Go join a gym.
