Probably: Celery is mostly fiber and water with little food content. It has been estimated that the calories expended in preparation, eating and digesting celeray are higher than the amount ingested by eating celery. Thus you can loss calories whilst filling yourself as long as you eat plain celery. Nothing untoward can come from eating celery.
