Negative Calorie Diet is based on the fact that there are no foods with a negative calorie value. However it can be possible to obtain a ‘negative’ calorie effect. Simple formula derived from a combination of food groups that contain lesser calories than the calories required to burn the food by the body resulting a phenomenon called “Negative Calorie Diet”.
The example below explains it better:
1. A piece of dessert consisting of 400 Calories (actually 400 kilocalories) may only require 150 Calorie (actually 150 kilocalories) to digest by our body, resulting in a net gain of 250 calories which is added to our body fat !
2. On the other hand, a 5 calorie raw piece of celery will require much more calories to chew and digest, so resulting in a net loss of calories from our body fat !! It implies that the more you eat, the more you lose weight!!!
Drawback of Negative calorie Diet
This diet is based on speculation and has no scientific backing to it. Also the “negative calorie food list” only talks about the vegetables and fruits to be eaten but it don’t give you any information on the preparations of them. The preparation can simply change the “magical “properties of these foods rendering them non-negative calorie foods.
