When I first heard the term, “negative calorie food”. I thought it was just the newest food fad. I mean food with less than zero calories, nonsense right? I didn’t pay much attention at first. When doctors started recommending adding negative calorie foods to your diet, I finally decided to check out what all the fuss was about.’
It turns out that negative calorie foods are not foods with less than zero calories, they’re actually foods that are low in calories, and require more calories to consume than they contain overall. So it’s more like certain foods have a negative calorie effect on our bodies. That being said, negative calorie foods still count.
The idea of the negative calorie effect still peaked my interest. After some research, I learned that there are a variety of foods that create a negative-calorie effect, which boosts the metabolism and helps you lose weight faster. Negative calorie foods are usually plant-based with high water content and are very rich in fiber.
I realized I could make negative calorie foods work for me. If I consume negative calorie foods regularly, in addition to lowering my junk food intake, and doing a little bit of exercise to chisel my abs, I’d lose belly fat in no time. I felt like I had figured out a formula for getting sexy; I just had to try it out. (If you’ve read my book, you know it worked.)
The most common negative calorie foods are fruits, grains, legumes, and vegetables. Since your body takes much longer to burn off fibrous foods, your metabolism stays supercharged, giving you a weight loss jumpstart. Try it out for yourself.
