Have you heard of negative calorie foods?
Negative calorie foods are those which require more energy (calories) to digest than they provide nutritionally to our bodies – and people typically overlook them when trying to lose weight.
Dieters are often so obsessed with following the strict guidelines imposed by their diets that they limit their food intake (sometimes drastically) and deprive the body of essential fibers, vitamins, and nutrients it needs to maintain proper health and balanced function.
Many negative calorie foods are readily available and affordable at our local supermarket, farmers market, and grocery isles.
Although they do not fit within the negative calorie food category, citrus fruits also aid the body in metabolizing and eliminating fats, and therefore are a great ally for weight loss. Among them, lemon especially has amazing tonic properties that help detox the liver naturally. This is significant since the liver is one of the largest and most important organs of our bodies.
A sluggish liver cannot breakdown fats and sugars properly, which causes the entire metabolism to slow down. Without the liver’s optimal performance, losing weight becomes a monumental and sometimes insurmountable task.
Green tea (although it is not considered a food) not only has minimum calories, but numerous studies have shown that it actually helps the body to burn calories more efficiently– besides providing healthy antioxidants that act as a tonic for the entire body.
Including these items in your daily diet is a great way to incorporate fiber-rich and wholesome foods that can complement your weight-loss program and keep you satisfied.
