So, the next few weeks, I will be posting recipes using negative calorie foods.
What is a negative calorie food, you may ask or at least someone out there will?
A food that burns more calories to digest then eat.( click here for a more elaborate explaination)
- Celery- The ultimate well known negative food
Sounds, perfect right? Not quite. There are two flaws with this.
First, these foods are not always filling so you cant ONLY eat negative calorie foods. Well you could but you would be hungry. (Click here for the Mayo clinic's article on it)
Second, who wants to eat these foods all the time on their own. I mean eating an apple is nice. Five raw apples, not so much.
Hence, I will be coming out with fun healthily recipes incorporating these negative calorie foods.
Now I am not Jenny Craig, so i am not promising you will loose 20 lbs. But replacing some chips, cookies , candy and other HIGH sugary calorie snacks with these might just help you drop a little of the fluff you gained this holiday season.
Good Luck y'all!
