Negative Calorie Foods: 15 Foods That Actually Burn More Calories Than They Contain

Friday, December 7, 2007 at 1:36am by Site Administrator

No, we’re not advocating the battle to see how few calories you can consume each day or promoting crash diets in any form or function; however, if you’re a snack-o-holic who can’t stop munching and crunching in between meals, try snacking on one of these negative calorie foods instead of gobbling down a cupcake or big bag of chips. Your body can burn more calories just by chewing and processing the snack than the food contains already. In other words, you’ll be able to keep eating throughout the day without packing on extra pounds.

  1. Celery: A staple on most party veggie trays, celery (without the ranch dressing) is a crispy snack that you can enjoy without worrying about taking in any calories. It is high in sugar and sodium, but still much healthier than pigging out on brownies or salty peanuts.
  2. Oranges: Before you leave for work in the morning, toss an orange into your bag for a mid-morning or late afternoon snack. An orange typically contains only 45 calories, so feel free to eat the whole thing!
  3. Strawberries: Strawberries are a popular negative calorie food because of their natural sweetness and juiciness. Sprinkle a few on your breakfast cereal to give your metabolism an extra jumpstart early in the day.
  4. Tangerines: A smaller, more tart version of the orange, tangerines are another negative calorie food that’s both tasty and portable. Enjoy one or two for a snack throughout the day to stimulate your taste buds without having to dig through the candy drawer.
  5. Grapefruit: As big as it is, grapefruit –without the extra sugar on top– is a surprisingly negative calorie food. One-half of a grapefruit only contains 36 calories but a whopping 78% of your daily value of potassium.
  6. Carrots: Carrots don’t just make your eyes sparkle; they also let you snack guilt-free. Snack on baby carrots instead of chips and salsa while you make dinner, or keep a bag in your office refrigerator when you feel the need to eat due to stress.
  7. Apricots: Indulge in nutrient-rich apricots for a sweet snack with negative calories. Your higher metabolism and thinning waistline will thank you.
  8. Lettuce: There’s a dirty little rumor in the magazine industry that the girls at Vogue keep lettuce in their desks to snack on when the hunger pains strike, but they can’t afford to compromise their stick thin figures. We’re guessing you’re not about to go through the day dizzy with starvation, but you can make yourself a hearty salad with lots of lettuce (and other negative calorie veggies!) once you get home. Don’t forget to take it easy on the dressing.
  9. Tomatoes: Chop up a tomato to give your sandwich, salad or egg whites omelet extra flavor without adding any calories.
  10. Cucumbers: Your salad can’t survive on lettuce alone. Cucumbers are another negative calorie food that are great for crunching on when your mouth is getting bored. Check here for tips on growing your own cucumbers.
  11. Watermelon: A traditional summertime treat, enjoying a watermelon is almost fun and delicious as eating candy because of its super sweet, super juicy nature. Plus, you’ll burn off all the calories crunching, digesting, and of course, spitting out the seeds.
  12. Cauliflower: Another party platter vegetable, raw cauliflower is naturally low in fat and of course, calories, so don’t be shy about piling up your cocktail napkin.
  13. Apples: An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but when eaten as a snack instead of candy bars or chips, apples will also keep the calories at bay. With only 81 calories per apple, your body also works a lot harder and longer to digest the fruit many other snack options.
  14. Hot Chili Peppers: Excess seasonings and dressings pile on lots of fat and calories to otherwise healthy meals. To avoid gaining weight simply because you’re a condiments junkie, experiment with more natural seasonings like hot chili peppers, which is a negative calorie food.
  15. Zucchini: Zucchini is a versatile, negative calorie food that can be baked, steamed, fried (not recommended), or prepared in many other ways. With just 15 calories per 100g, make zucchini your new diet staple.

Implementing negative calorie foods into your daily diet doesn’t just help you lose weight by cutting calories; it also speeds up your metabolism and introduces healthier items like fruits and vegetables into your regular food choices and favorite recipes. So no matter how you look at it, you’ll come out ahead.

More often than not, we’re blankly staring at the computer screen, getting up for breaks, and shuffling around papers trying to look busy.

More Internet Time Wasters

This miscellaneous group of time wasters will make you look busy while you have fun procrastinating.

  1. Clockwatching Heaven: Find out what time it is in top cities around the world. This website suggests throwing a silent party when "your fellow workers reach 5 PM in Paris or Sydney."
  2. All recipes: Start planning what you’re going to make for dinner while you’re still at the office. By the time you get home, you’ll probably be too tired and hungry to think about anything other than frozen pizza, so this fun diversion is also a practical one!
  3. YouTube: Even if you have to turn the sound down on the more outrageous videos, you and your co-workers will get a good laugh out of the crazy videos sent in from all over the world.
  4. Send ecards to your friends: Picking out a silly e-card from sites like 1001 Postcards will keep your mind off of your dull day.
  5. Keep up with a social network: It’s possible to spend hours clicking through profiles on social networking sites like Facebook or LinkedIn. Update your profile, search for new friends, or have fun scoping out random members in other countries.
  6. Astrology.com: Just because you’re having a bad day today doesn’t mean the rest of the week is going to be terrible…or does it? Take a peek into the future by reading your horoscopes on Astrology.com.
  7. Read or maintain a blog: Blogging is a great way to waste time at the office. Let your readers know what’s going on in your day, or subscribe to RSS feeds from your favorite bloggers on the Web. Just don’t get too specific on your site, though, or your boss might not be unhappy with your posts.
  8. Organize a personal photo album: Sites like Shutterfly let users set up and custom design their own photo albums online to be shared with family and friends. Get your mind off work and focus on the good times you’ve had.
  9. Read a magazine: Don’t you wish you could kick your feet up and flip through a magazine while you’re at work? Unless you’re catching up on industry news, flipping through tabloids probably isn’t allowed. Many magazines, however, publish features and extras online so that you can take a break whenever you want.
  10. Book a flight: Plan a vacation somewhere far, far away from your office even while you’re chained to your desk. Use an online travel service to book a flight or cruise, letting you take that vacation you so desperately need.
  11. Online Magnet Poetry: Choose from poetry kits like Shakespeare, pickup lines, college, or artist to create magnetic poetry that no one but you has to see.
  12. Human for Sale: If someone were to put you up for sale, how much people anyone pay? Calculate your worth by evaluating your sense of humor, athletic ability, income level and more.
  13. The Dialectizer: Type in a phrase in The Dialectizer’s text box, and see how it would be translated into jive, cockney, redneck and other funny dialects.
  14. Watch TV: No, we don’t mean set up an entire entertainment system in your office. But when your boss is out of the office, check out these online TV channels, and watch the day fly by.

Fun Around the Office

Grab your co-workers and indulge in a little fun that’s not listed in your job description.

  1. Play on the playground: These toys from Office Playground, Inc. offer up tons of silly fun that’s still office appropriate — sort of. Toss around a Nerf football or use the slingshot flying chicken to play tricks on the office gossip.
  2. Put up posters: These irreverent posters are just the thing you need on your walls to spice up office life. Tongue-in-cheek messages like "Using the toilet facilities more than twice a day is forbidden. Further use has to be previously approved by the management" will have your office mates rolling with laughter.
  3. Feng Shui your office: If your boss asks you why you’re moving around your office furniture, don’t tell him or her it’s because you’re trying to waste time. It’s just feng shui.
  4. Take a cigarette break: Even if you don’t smoke, take a short break whenever you can to go outside and "smoke." You can meet up with friends in other offices, take a walk around the block, or just enjoy the peace and quiet.
  5. Plan a party: Whether it’s an office party, a weekend blowout or just drinks after work, subtlety plan a party with your office friends to get your mind off work.

Other

If you’ve played all the games, taken all the surveys and quizzes, and visited all the time waster websites, but you still have a few minutes left until you can pack up and go home, try out these methods for making time go faster.

  1. Cute Overload: This weirdly popular site features photos and videos of adorable animals, like "disapproving rabbits," otters, puppies and kittens.

  5. The Official Time Waster’s Guide: This site links readers to blogs, movie reviews, video games, web comics and more. Discuss each post with other time wasters on the site’s hosted forums.
  6. Google yourself: Want to see how your ranked against all the other Joe Schmoes? If you’re not the number one entry under your name, try adding in keywords to increase your chances of getting to the top.
  7. Online Dating: Create an online dating profile and flirt with potential mates from the safety of your office chair.
  8. Instant message your friends: Find out what your friends are doing at their jobs by connecting online with instant message services like AIM. Plan a movie night, complain about work (just don’t let your boss see!) or count down the minutes until 5p.m. together.
  9. Mental floss: This site is "where knowledge junkies get their fix." Catch up on news, trivia, history and general fun facts at Mental Floss.
  10. Funny Business blog: The Funny Business blog features "everything about business except the bottom line." Read office-related stories and articles about employee benefits, office ethics, business trips and more.
  11. Salary Calculator: Is your salary comparable to the market value? Find out what you could be making with the salary calculators on Salary.com.
