hey jewels, pineapple was listed on the website I checked, so I just copied and pasted the foods. It is not something I follow, although I eat mainly fruits & veggies and lot of them are listed so I guess I do follow it to some extent without even realizing it.

pah... negative calorie foods...
the very idea is silly!
sure, it might take more calories to digest them than what's in the food itself, but it takes a fair while to break down fruit & veges, so it's not like the calories are going to be automatically "deducted" from your system as soon as you eat them..

I agree Em. The only ones I would really class as negative are ones like celery and cabbage coz they are "roughage" - hard to break down and take ages to digest. But fruit? I dont think so.

Haha I'm glad someone else agrees with me too Liz!!! I WISH fruit was negative calorie, and veggies like carrots etc, half my diet would be negative calorie!! I just count everything and if it takes more calories to digest it than great!
