Diet foods and food to aid weight loss are listed below. These are often seen as negative calorie foods as well as diet foods but there is some debate about whether any food is actually negative in calorific value at all. Of course no food has a negative calorie value, for example an apple is not minus 10 calories. However the argument is that a stick of celery, for example, contains about 5 calories but you use 10 calories in energy to chew and digest it then you have a deficit of abut 5 calories hence a negative calories effect. A number of foods can be classified in this way hence if you just eat from this list then theoretically you would be losing weight. See also negative calorie diet review
Eating these diet foods rather than nothing assists dieting as it can have a more beneficial effect than starving or eating little. The body does not detect any lack of food by eating these diet foods and therefore the metabolism does not slow and continues to burn at your usual rate hence you do not tend to feel less energetic or lethargic as you would if you were on a starvation or very low calorie diet.
On the other hand foods easily assimilated by the body such as chocolate cake are easily digested and the energy used to chew and digest the food makes little dent on the overall calories consumed in such food. So with a piece of chocolate cake of say 120 calories only 20 are need to digest it leaving positive calories of 100.
Even if the negative calorie theory is not entirely accurate there is no denying that it has a beneficial impact in weight loss. Even if you did eat mainly these diet foods and the negative calorie theory was not true, as these foods are so low in calories and are all healthy fruit and vegetables you would see weight loss anyway provided you kept other foods to a reasonable level. In fact this forms one of the premises of our diet which definitely succeeds in you losing weight. Such diets based around these diet foods which are mainly fruit and vegetables are also very healthy and also ideal for vegetarians.
