Is it a good idea to eat just lettuce?

As in using Romaine lettuce as my main source of calories?

Lettuce actually has a good protein/calorie.

Romaine lettuce has 8 grams of protein for every 108 calories, which is a head.

It's just hard to eat enough calories from lettuce.

    No you are an omnivore, not a rabbit.

      Humans are made by God to be vegans which is why we are omnivores. he gave us that ability in case we need to eat meat.

    I mean it is good for you... go for it. If you so choose- might taste plain though.

      Oh you mean as your only source of food...definitely not! You need all your vitamins and minerals.

    No, it is not because our body needs all the vitamins.

    No, of course it's not a “good idea”, it's a crazy one.

    There is absolutely not 8 grams of protien in a head of Romain lettuce, unless it is full of worms.

      surprisingly, every place I looked said roughly the same thing: nearly 8 grams of protein in 1 full head of romaine..also calcium. Can you imagine eating just that though?? she would have to eat 15-20 heads a day to get sufficient calories though, which we all know isn't going to happen.

    Not a good idea. That's not a great source of protein either
