    Negative calories: diet theblogpoint.com/cinderella-solution-review/ with wrong thinking But there is a misconception behind the diet "negative calories." In fact, there are some foods that contain very few calories and at the same time increase digestive activity through high levels of fiber, including many fruits and vegetables, such as celery like no calories, but is rich in fiber, which are digested by high energy expenditure by the body.

    Nevertheless, the energy balance can not be negative.

Negative calories: diet theblogpoint.com/cinderella-solution-review/ with wrong thinking But there is a misconception behind the diet "negative calories." In fact, there are some foods that contain very few calories and at the same time increase digestive activity through high levels of fiber, including many fruits and vegetables, such as celery like no calories, but is rich in fiber, which are digested by high energy expenditure by the body.

Nevertheless, the energy balance can not be negative. The energy required for digestion is already taken into account in foods and included in the specified calorie count. A celery stalk, for example, has ten calories and requires two calories of energy to digest. The calorie count is given around with eight calories, since eight calories are left to the body after digestion.

Food and negative calories
On average, about ten to twenty percent of a food's calories are spent on digestion. A residual energy for the body remains so in any case. Foods such as cucumbers , spinach , mushrooms or lettuce are, however, negligible as energy suppliers anyway.
