First, there’s no such thing as negative calorie foods.


In my usual web searches, I found the following blog post:

Although there is no such thing as a food that takes more calories to eat than it contains, there are foods that do take enough calories that it reduces the amount of calories your taking in. Below is the list of those foods:

  • Asparagus
  • Beet Root
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Carrot
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Chicory
  • Hot Chilies
  • Cucumber
  • Garden cress
  • Garlic
  • Green Beans
  • Lettuce
  • Onion
  • Radish
  • Spinach
  • Turnip
  • Zucchini
  • Fruits
    • Apple
    • Blueberries
    • Cantaloupe
    • Cranberry
    • Grapefruit
    • Honeydew
    • Lemon/Lime
    • Mango
    • Orange
    • Papaya
    • Peach
    • Pineapple
    • Raspberry
    • Strawberry
    • Tomato
    • Tangerine
    • Turnip
    • Watermelon

The good news is that there are number of things on there that I not only like, but can eat without having to make a meal (particularly fruits). But I could mix and match a few for a basic salad or snack, and reduce my calorie intake for snacks. I’ve already started doing that with the previously mentioned fruits. For somethings that I might generally eat plain (blueberries/rasberries for example), I could add splenda, still keeping the calorie intake down. Or combine that with a high fiber cereal (instead of buying the cereals with the dried fruits, although those are pretty good)..
