Are They Really Zero?


It sounds too good to be true, ZERO calories?  Well, not really, but there are foods that are considered negative calorie because the food requires more energy to be digested than the food provides. There is no scientific evidence to support the negative calorie theory, but many believe that eating these foods can help with weight management.

The foods that top the list are so slight in calories, that either way they are not going to put a big dent in your calorie intake. Each of these foods has less than 50 calories per 100 gram serving.

  • CELERY - 16 calories
  • ORANGES - 47 calories
