Comments on: Negative Calorie Foods: 15 Foods That Actually Burn More Calories Than They Contain http://www.businesscreditcards.com/bootstrapper/negative-calorie-foods-15-foods-that-actually-burn-more-calories-than-they-contain/ Information and Tips on getting the right card Wed, 12 Mar 2008 13:44:43 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.4.2 By: Dominique http://www.businesscreditcards.com/bootstrapper/negative-calorie-foods-15-foods-that-actually-burn-more-calories-than-they-contain/#comment-6240 Dominique Wed, 12 Mar 2008 06:49:20 +0000 http://www.businesscreditcards.com/bootstrapper/negative-calorie-foods-15-foods-that-actually-burn-more-calories-than-they-contain/#comment-6240 Wow! I have never posted before so I am a little uncertain about what the norm is as far as posting etiquette. It seems to me that there are an awfull lot of people getting very rilled up about and more than a little rude over "Food"! One person is giving out healthfull information which may or may not have some significant impact on weight loss. We can choose to heed it or not. I am interested in the scientific validity of the theory that one can expend more energy eating a food item than that food item contributes. Intuitively it seems to make sense to me, but then maybe I am among the not so bright lights being refered to above (using much less charitable language). Wow!

Try eating nothing but celery for two months... feel free to take a multivitamin, just to make sure you die from starvation and not a vitamin or mineral deficiency. You won't have learned anything since you'll be dead, but at least then you'll have STFU. Oh, and the great minds who say these things, are people like igiveyoumylife who proved himself illiterate when he said lettuce wasn't listed... it's #8 on the list dumbass. Learn to read! Then someone brought up the laws of conservation of energy... as if the body was a closed system... if it were, our temperature by the time we were a week old would be well above boiling. Duh, your body loses energy all the time, moron. That's why you can consume over 1200 calories a day without excercising and not gain weight. Also, the body is not 100% energy efficient. Just because a food has x number of calories, doesn't mean your body absorbs them all. Nothing is 100% energy efficient (THAT would be physically impossible). Food calories are measured as the total energy value of the food, not the total energy value your body aborbs from it. There's no measurement for that because it changes from person to person. So even though you consumed those 3 calories in that stick of celery, your body might only absorb 1 or 2 of those calories. In the time it took to consume those 1 to 2 calories, your body was losing energy at a much higher rate. Not because you were eating the calories, but just because your body naturally uses a certain number of calories to function (that's called metabolism for those of you who have shown yourselves to be dumber than a box of rocks). By the way sangeeta manawani, nobody can give you those figures because it depends on your individual metabolism at the time you're consuming that food, as well as the health of your digestive system (measured as your body's ability to absorb those calories). That changes not only from person to person, but even in the same person it can change from morning to night, because your body isn't a static machine. For anyone else... while there are some problems with the article (like saying celery is high in sugar, I'm not sure you can really call 3 calories per stick, high), the title of it isn't one of them. Just because you're too stupid to read or figure it out, doesn't make it wrong. It just makes you a dumbass if you post about it.

I dont care what any of you people say, it works. it takes more energy to digest them and chew them than they actually contain. If you are skinny, dont worry about this. However, if you want to lose weight this is the way to do it. I previously lost 20lbs. in a period of 5 weeks. That was a year ago and I have kept all of it off. I just started it again about 2 weeks ago and I have lost ten pounds. THE SCALE SHOWS THE TRUTH. So all of you that are saying that it doesnt work, try it. You will find that you are very very wrong. just for the record, I eat negative calorie foods and lean cuisines everyday and I continue to lose weight.

"Your body can burn more calories just by chewing and processing the snack than the food contains already." some people need to learn how to read. its amazing how people are saying this is crap because all foods have calories. “Your body can burn more calories just by chewing and processing the snack than the food contains already.” some people need to learn how to read.

I am totally with richard and all (sorry can't remember every name..). It works if you also exercise. PLUS, what is the problem with this article if it is true or not. Vegetables and fruits ARE PROOVEN to be the best diet. Everyone knows that they are essential if you want to lose weight, so what's the problem if it is still a theory that still needs to be proven ??? It only helps people to find motivation! Also, if you don't believe in the article why are you so interested in participating in the comments? just click on the close button and go do your business somewhere else!

BUT fatloss is all about calorie in = calorie out. If your metabolism dosent have enough calories needed to digest that apple, it would A) go catabolic (used stored calories to digest the food) or B) Slow the metabolism. I eat lots and lots of vegies, fruits, and lean meats and i am gaining muscle right now and not fat. Gone from 148 to 151 and stayed at 5% BF so far. If i could provide anybody with any advice, it would be to make fruits and vegitables around 50% of your diet. The other half lean protien and healthy fat calories. Hope this makes sense. since each person’s metabolism might be different, eating these foods could have a weight loss effect in some people with a fast metabolism (ex. a runner or bodybuilder) while in others it it may make them gain weight provided calories consumed > Calories expended due to a slowed metabolism (ex. low cal dieters that are plataued). so i think that eating just an apple only with a glass of water in the morning or before bed could actualy burn more caloies via. digestion of it than the apple contained provided that your metabolism is not in “calore conservation mode” and your maintainance calorie level is met.
