Video: Top 5 Calorie Free Foods
It's no secret that the main secret of weight loss is spending more calories than you consume. Due to the general craze for calorie counting, negative calorie foods have become very popular. What it is, how it can be negative and what products can be attributed to this category, we describe below.
How can calories be negative?
Any food supplies the body with energy, but at the same time, we spend the latter even on digestion. Its amount directly depends on what we eat. Negative calorie foods are those that the body expends more calories to digest than it actually receives. Of course, it's not worth building your diet entirely from them, but they will be an excellent addition to those that still fill you with energy.
Foods with negative calories usually include vegetables and fruits that are low in sugar and high in fiber and water. Below are the most popular ones.
Celery is one of the main stars of nutrition. It contains only 16 kcal per 100 grams of product, while celery is high in fiber, which makes it very beneficial for digestion. Add celery to salads, smoothies, juices, or pair with hummus for a healthy snack.
Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries contain only about 30 kcal per 100 grams. But it is not only the negative calorie content that makes them an ideal product, but also the colossal benefits that they bring to the body. Berries are a real treasure trove of vitamins and antioxidants necessary for beauty and health.
