Negative calorie foods can help you to reach your weight loss goals, but if you want to create a lean, healthy body, you have to know when to consume them and in what amounts.
To extract the calories from these foods your body has to work really hard. While doing this it expands more calories than these foods actually contain.
Asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, apples, grapefruit, mango, and oranges are a few examples.
If you want to lose body fat permanently, your main focus should be on proper nutrition and exercise. Simply eating these foods will not create the body of your dreams. Permanently losing unwanted body fat is not that easy.
But knowing which foods possess a negative calorie effect can help you create meals that are low in calories, and in the long term become one of the elements of an effective weight loss strategy.
There are many advanced nutrition techniques where this information can be used to take your weight loss to the next level and help you to reach a really low body fat percentage.
But in the beginning of your weight loss program it is recommended to eat these foods mostly in your last meal of the day, and to consume mostly vegetables, while eating fruits in moderation.
Once you reach your ideal weight, of course you can eat more fruit in your daily meals, but please consider that all simple carbohydrates should be eaten in moderation when weight loss is what you are aiming at.
In the carbohydrate section of my site I cover everything that has to do with carbohydrates, including simple carbohydrates, complex starchy carbohydrates and complex fibrous carbohydrates.
By reading that section when you have the time you will find all the information how to properly consume these foods.
Negative calorie foods can be used to help you create a lean, healthy body, but they do not play a major role in reaching this result.
They are only a small piece of the weight loss puzzle and should be used mostly to stay within the limits of your planned daily calorie intake.
