Negative calorie foods

Here’s a quick list of some negative calorie foods – foods that take more calories to digest than they contain:

  • asparagus
  • beet
  • broccoli
  • green cabbage
  • carrot
  • cauliflower
  • celery root
  • celery chicory
  • hot chili peppers
  • cucumber
  • dandelion
  • endive (leaf vegetable belonging to the daisy family)
  • garden cress
  • garlic
  • green beans
  • courgette
  • apple
  • cranberries
  • grapefruit
  • lemon
  • mango
  • orange
  • pineapple
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • tangerine
  • lettuce
  • onion
  • papaya
  • radishes
  • spinach
  • turnip

My chunky friend would call these foods “devil foods”, making the mistake of assuming that just because a food is low in calories, it has no value.

Of course, foods low in calories, apart from being able to help you lower your calorie intake, are also still full of vitamins and minerals.
