You explained it just fine! That is pretty much how it works, they empty of fat and fill with water, and then they'll finally empty of water too and then you'll see your loss on the scale.

No, I don't. I do use Johnny's seasoning salt because it doesn't have sugar in it, but since spices are plant based, I think they all have some carbs.

For mine, I do just use chicken and mayo. Maybe MCT oil. But all the veggies wouldn't work on 72. Sometimes I'll use some dill relish. And you can chop hard boiled eggs into it too if you want to.
