  • There could be, if you are not getting any other nutrients of types of food. There is always too much of a good thing. But, ice berg lettuce is a great source of water.

  • try using other kinds of lettuce. Iceberg tastes good, but other than water, it's pretty empty nutritionally. Darker leafy greens (like spinach and kale for example) will provide you with some great nutrients.

  • I eat salads a lot too but I make sure I have a small amount of some kind of meat and a small amount of starch with it. I actually started dicing up chicken tenders and adding it into my salad so I make sure I get my proteins.

  • I eat salad a lot but with my own homemade dressings.. I can tell after a few days that I'm lacking other foods.. I would say balance it all out
