Negative Calorie Foods List? What are negative calories? Negative Calorie foods have what we will refer to as a “negative calorie effect.” To give you an idea of what that means, we’ll go through the process. You eat an apple. The apple you consume has 80 calories however, your body’s chemical processing, digestion and breakdown of that apple causes you to burn off 90 calories thus, and your negative calorie effect is –10 calories. Can you see the implications of a diet based on this premise? I do not totally believe in negative calories as I explain with an example of celery negative calories , but there is still no doubt that these are great foods to have around if you are on a diet. And do not forget ice water, which may be the greatest negative calorie food of all.
If you’re like me, you probably want to get right to it. Okay, here it is… the negative calorie food list. It gives you the food to use in the one version of the negative food diet. Here’s the list:
Fruit salad (fresh/canned)
Bass (fresh water/sea)

That’s the negative calorie food list! Not a bad list, eh? Look the list over. Look for foods that you are already eating and breathe a sigh of relief. I mean, if you already like something in particular, isn’t that half the battle? One of your chores after reading will be to find some of these foods at your supermarket. Don’t despair. What you don’t find at one grocery store, you may find at another. If you do not find it at the grocery store try a health food store, or farmer’s market.
Really spend some time with this negative calorie foods list. Read each food item and visualize it. That’s right. See each item in your mind’s eye. Imagine the taste, the smell. Why do this? Self-Programming. You don’t want this to be just another diet failure do you?
Do we cook them? Do we eat them raw? Both, but give emphasis on eating raw foods as you can see at the page Raw Diet Weight Loss. Use your own good judgment. One suggestion about eating these foods cooked or raw: If there’s a particular food or group of foods on the list that you don’t really like raw, try cooking it and vice versa. Sometimes cooking will make a food more palatable.
