Chow Down On These Low-Calorie Foods With Reckless Abandon - Trust Me, they'll Never Make You Fat

Posted by Amal Hantash on

Usually, when something sounds too good to be true, it is. Not the case here. Though chocolate and other sweet treats didn’t make the cut, I’ve got a dietitian-approved list of foods you can eat unlimited amounts of without sabotaging your diet and fitness goals. Not only are they low in calories and high in fiber, but all eight foods also offer up a host of other health benefits—chomp away.


Celery is probably the most notorious "negative-calorie" food (that’s not actually a thing, by the way). What’s meant by the commonly used term? There's this thing called the 'thermogenic effect of food'—in short, your body burns calories digesting the food you eat. But it really varies by person and genetics. So, yes, it could take more energy to digest than you’re actually getting from the veggie, which is where its reputation as a negative- or zero-calorie food comes from.
