What are Negative Calorie Foods?
Well, technically they don’t exist. Negative calorie foods are what I call particular foods that are low calorie, high fiber, and nutrient dense. You should be eating as many negative calorie foods as you can stomach.
Take broccoli for example. Considered by most to be a superfood. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals, fiber and phytonutrients. All of this, and a serving a broccoli only has a couple carbohydrates.
I don’t count fiber as carbohydrates or calories because they move through the digestive track undigested. However, it still takes energy to move this fiber through your body, and it also takes energy to digest the food in the first place.
This whole process from beginning to end takes more than the 8 calories per serving to digest a large plate of broccoli. And because of this, I consider broccoli and many other vegetables to be negative calorie foods. Foods you can eat and not count calories. Foods that aren’t going to make you fat. Foods that are packed with nutrients. Eat as much as you want.
List of Negative Calorie Foods:
- Green Beans
- Mixed Greens
- Brussels Sprouts
Eat these negative calorie foods, and eat them in large quantities. They are great dieting foods because they are bulky and fill up your stomach – making you feel less hungry. And you don’t really have to worry about your calorie intake eating them, as they are so low calorie and nearly impossible to overeat.
