Negative Calorie Foods

March 2, 2010, Posted by Carmen Lopez Marshall at 6:06 pm | 1 Comment

All foods contain some calories, but it is believed that some foods take up more caloric energy to digest then the calories that are in them resulting in what is called the “Negative calorie effect”.       

Negative calorie foods are the ones that when you eat them raw or in some cases slightly cooked with nothing on them, your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the actual food itself since the body has to work hard in order to extract calories from these foods.. For a healthy weight loss and a little boost add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most are full of nutrients and won’t weigh you down. And remember,  the more “negative calorie effect” foods you eat, the more you may lose!
