    Sounds good! I HAVE read here that iceberg lettuce is not very
    nutritious or even fibrous, so you might want to switch to romaine or
    another kind of lettuce to get more bang for your buck. Also, go easy
    on the avocados -- 1/2 a small avocado is allowed per day during
    Induction (see http://atkins.com/Archive/2001/12/15-464579.html for a
    list of acceptable foods for Induction).

    The peeing will slow down some after a few days :)
