We all know that every food we eat contain calorie. BUT some of the foods are ‘Negative Calorie,’ that are supposed to burn up more calories in the process of digesting them than are actually contained in the foods themselves. These ‘negative calorie’ food basically are food with HIGH Fiber-content which require more energy to digest. In other words, the body has to work harder in order to extract calories from these foods. This gives these foods a tremendous natural fat-burning advantage.
These foods are very efficient in quick weight loss. Some of the negative calorie diet claim to loss 1-2 lbs EACH DAY! However in the long term eating only high fiber-content food is not nutritionally balanced.
Like most quick weight loss diets,the reality of “negative calorie diets” is that they are nearly impossible to follow for any significant period of time. Who else want to eat almost tasteless fruits and vegetables all day long? I bet you more than 90% of people who try it will give up after a day or two and probably end up overeating for the next couple of weeks!
If you need to lose some pounds in the short term, following negative calorie diets + exercise is the way to go. For long term, I wouldn’t suggest you to follow 100% Negative Calorie Food.
Below are some example of the Negative Calorie Food list that you might be interested.
