Negative calorie foods or Fat burners.
Most of you must be wondering if such foods actually do exist?
Well, YES!!! Such foods do exist!
Now, you might want to know what the term “negative calorie foods” or “fat burners” exactly means.
We all know that ALL foods contain calories.
What on earth then do we mean by ‘negative calorie foods’ or ‘fat burners’?
Let us begin by knowing what are negative calorie foods/ fat burners.
By “fat burners”, we mean foods which use up more calories of the body for digesting than would be released by them or contained in them.
The arrangement under which such foods use up a part of the energy produced by our body (or, calories released by other foods eaten by us) hastens the process of metabolism.
This makes the concept of negative calorie foods extremely popular with dietitians and weight loss experts who prefer to call them “fat burning foods” or “fat burners”.
Negative Calorie Foods: How They Work?
Some foods act as fat burners when the nutrients present in them cause the fat deposits in our body to break down, thereby making it simpler for the body to get rid of the fat housed inside it.
Calories released by such foods are much harder for the body to process and breakdown.
In other words, our body has to work very hard to get the calories from such foods. Infact, the hard work is not even worth the effort in terms of energy released by these foods.
Sounds strange, but it is the truth! There actually DO exist foods which, when eaten, will technically help you LOSE calories.
Let us assume that a 50 gram (approximately 2 ounces) bar of your favorite chocolate contains 200 calories. Now, if your body needs 50 calories to digest this chocolate bar completely and to RELEASE those 200 calories, the net gain of your body is 150 calories.
On the other hand, a 50 gram piece of broccoli contains about 15 calories. But, your body uses up 40 calories to digest that broccoli meaning thereby that you will actually LOSE 25 calories on every 50 grams of broccoli eaten by you!!
That, in effect, means: The more you eat, the more calories you burn!
