negative calorie foods

Postby Sara89 » Sun May 16, 2010 10:39 pm

Okay I was just reading about negative calorie foods does anyone know if this is a real thing or just some internet lie. Cause I really like raw carrott, tomatos and greenbeans and will snack on them instead of bad things if this really is the case.

It means they burn up more calories to digest then what they are actually worth. For example a carrot could be 20 calories but takes 40 calories to digest.

They say celery is a negative calorie food. The deal is that all food has calories, but some foods are meant to be harder for the body to break down, so you burn more calories breaking them down than the calorie content in the actual food.

Who wants to eat truck loads of celery though? lol.

It may well be scientifically true but I would ignore it. Everything in moderation, expend more energy than you take in and you will lose weight!
