There are only a few foods that have virtually no calories - but eat enough of them and they also will add up. Celery, strawberries, cucumbers, cherries, tomatoes are all very low calorie - but eat enough and you'll get a belly ache too.

Welcome to SparkPeople and welcome to Your Class Team! I joined in 2006 and came back in 2008 to work the Spark Program!

You can do it! SparkPeople works!

My favorite tool is the Nutrition Tracker:

- if you bite it, you write it. From the day I started logging all my foods, I also started losing all my weight!

Walking is still my main form of exercise!

Hugs,
Linda

I thought it sounded a little fishy.

Thanks for the feedback!

Sorry but its bs - you can eat too much of ANY food and gain weight. Ultimately it is the calories in/calories out.

Diet soda is notorious for causing sugar cravings.

Out of that list of negative calorie foods that are neglible and honestly wouldn't bother to count on your tracker: garlic and chile peppers. The rest add calories and do count. I know that some are high fiber, hence take more energy to chew/digest but the whole negative calorie bit is a theory (and not a solid one). They used that theory to back the premise of the cabbage soup diet (ick) and the grapefruit diet.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Is it too good to be true?

They're saying that you can eat as many of these fruits and vegetables with no guilt, because it uses more calories to digest them than are in the food.

If it is true, do you have to track the calories that these foods have if they result in "negative" calories anyway?
