Did you know that a 25 calorie piece of broccoli (100 gram) requires 80 calories to digest, resulting in a net loss of 55 calories from the body fat!! Thus, the more you eat, the more you lose weight!!!

-55 cals then +2500 cals

Yet as enticing as all this sounds, the dietary bankroll built by this approach would be very small, probably amounting to no more than a few dozen calories a day. In a world where it takes 3500 calories to work off a single pound of fat, feasting on celery would make only the merest difference.

There have been those who have taken this tiny sliver of truth and used it to form what they tout as "negative calorie diets", proving once again that anything can form the core of a diet plan someone wants to sell to others, provided it contains a notion that so much as vaguely sounds like it might work and weds it to the promise of easy, quick, effortless and pain-free weight loss.

Unfortunately it will not be that high...

I make it all myself and it will be gluten free...

How much broccoli would it take then on top of a large McDonalds quarterpounder meal, with Diet coke (being healthy!) and sweet n sour sauce to cancel the effect?

2 skips full to the top...

EACH...

Broccoli is great... but you'd have to eat a whole tree of it for it to have any real effect.

HOWEVER it is good for you, if you have broccoli and other veggies where you would usually have chips or some other greasy side dish you know what they say - every little helps

I grow my own veg and eat it very fresh - looking at the list of negative calorie foods on the linked website then I should have disappeared into thin air many months ago!!

But, of course, they're trying to sell a book aren't they?

Me too - can't figure it out :whistling:

Or maybe it's because the whole counting calories thing is overated and all the veg, althought great for you, still contain carbohydrates. Just a guess.

Sorry to dissapoint you all but in theory 'negative calorie' foods do exist however in practice they do not.
The only true negative calorie food is iced water, since your body needs to heat it up first to then absorb it.

To quote a nutrition consultant:

"Yes negative calories food exist in theory but not in practice.

From a normal digestion point of view, ie our enzymes, the cost of digestion is indeed greater than the calorific value of the food consumed, thus negative calories. BUT some of the bacterial flora in our gut feed on the prebiotic fibres (FOS) in these foods, and break it down into sacchraides which we can disgest and yield energy from, therefore this roughly equals the energy cost of digestion. So there are no negative energy foods.

These foods are encourgaed though as prebiotics are crucial for a healthy digestive system."

there isint any food that burns more kcals then you can eat, they same the same stuff with celery as well i think.
