The first time I ever heard of zero calorie foods or negative calorie foods was just last month. I was preparing a snack—celery sticks and hummus—and my brother’s friend asked, “Isn’t celery a negative calorie food?” When he explained to me what he meant, I told him that I had heard something like that—that celery loses its calories after digested—but I had never heard of it labeled that way. I also didn’t know until recently that there is a whole category of “negative calorie” foods.
Apparently, these foods lose their calories after digested, and thus result in zero calories. They then cause the body to burn more calories. Although, don’t think that dousing these foods in salt, oils, sugars, and other seasonings and condiments is okay—that probably negates the effects.
Of course, the only truly zero calorie item is water, but if you’re trying to lose weight these are some good items to stock up your refrigerator with. They’re also just good items to stock up on anyways. Also, I’m pretty sure that zero calorie soda pops do not count; and whether or not they are truly zero calories, I wouldn’t doubt that they probably result in a slew of health problems.
So anyways, here are your Zero Calorie Foods…STOCK UP!!!
