All foods contain calories however, some foods take so much energy to digest such as Apples that your body actually burns up the calories from them in the process of consuming them. These are called Zero Calorie Foods.

Still other amazing foods take so much energy to digest that you actually lose weight by eating them. These are known as Negative Calorie Foods.

Here is the list of Negative Calorie – Zero Calorie Foods:

Asparagus, apple, beet, blueberries, broccoli, cranberry, cantaloupe, carrot, celery, chicory, cauliflower, cucumber, dandelion, endive, garden cress, garlic, grapefruit, green bean, honeydew, hot chili peppers, lemon, lime, lettuce, mango, onion, orange, papaya, peach, pineapple, radish, raspberries, spinach, strawberries, tomato, tangerine, turnip, watermelon, and zucchini.

EXAMPLES :An average tomato will contain approximately 26 calories but it will take you 60 calories to digest it amounting in a 34 calorie loss each time you dine on it.

A stick of celery contains only 6 calories but it will take you 50 to digest it giving you a loss of 46 calories.

One hundred grams of broccoli has about 25 calories but will cause you to burn up 80 calories consuming it for a loss of 55 calories.

Have fun trying out some of these foods in your every day diet!
