Negative Calorie Foods

 
So you may have heard of these negative calorie foods but this is a myth.  The truth is all foods contain calories.  There are some foods that contain very few calories and we burn some calories while we chew.  But there is no way that these foods can put us into a negative calorie balance.  Here is a list of foods that are considered to be negative calorie foods:
  • apples 
  • asparagus
  • blueberries
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • cantaloupe
  • garlic
  • grapefruit
  • spinach
  • tomato
  • watermelon
  • zucchini
 
Remember that these are fruits and vegetables that are good for you to incorporate into your diet even though they are not negative calorie foods.  They are high in fiber and lots of nutrients.  They can also help you to lose weight.
