What is the Negative Calorie Food Theory?

All food contains calories. Even a little bitty baby carrot has calories, about 15 calories per ounce. The theory goes that it takes more calories to digest the 15 calorie carrot than the 15 calories the carrot provides. It is the overall equation related to the amount of energy required for digestion in comparison to the amount of energy in the food item itself.


Fat-Burning Effect?

Supporters of the negative calorie diet claim that by eating these particular foods your body will dip into stored calories, better known as fat cells, to obtain the necessary energy to digest the negative calorie food. This brings about the term “fat-burning”. However, your body will use the most immediately available calories first before diving into the pool of fat. Hence, the energy from the piece of chicken you ate with the baby carrot will be used and most likely will provide an adequate amount of power to digest the carrot. It may be possible, in theory, that stored calories will be reached if overall intake is extremely low.

Negative Calorie Food List

These are the most common negative calorie foods:

* apples
* asparagus
* beets
* broccoli
* carrots
* cauliflower
* celery root
* chicory
* chili peppers
* cranberries
* cucumbers
* endive
* garlic
* grapefruit
* green beans
* green cabbage
* lemons
* lettuce
* mangos
* onions
* oranges
* papaya
* pineapple
* radishes
* raspberries
* spinach
* strawberries
* tangerines
* turnip
* zucchini

As you may have discovered, all the foods listed are produce items. Many fruits and vegetables are high in fiber content, thus requiring a long digestive process.
