How to lose weight while continuing to eat your fill?
The first tip is to choose low-calorie appetite suppressant foods. In this way, you will store fewer calories without feeling hungry. Another tip is to choose foods that will cause you to burn more calories through the digestion process.
By combining these two tricks, you get the famous negative calorie foods. Foods that will make you lose calories thanks to their low calorie content and the energy you will have to expend to digest them well.
However, as you can imagine, you can’t eat just that. You need energy to run your body. The goal is therefore not to feed exclusively on negative calorie foods but rather to try to incorporate them into your diet as much as possible.
How did we make this top 10?
In this classification, you will naturally find a lot of fruits and vegetables. Whenever possible, try to eat them raw. In this way, they will be more interesting nutritionally speaking and will make you spend more energy during digestion.
One of our selection criteria is also what these foods can bring you in terms of overall health. The goal is not to lose weight without preserving your health.
Two other criteria that have been used to make this ranking are price and convenience. Indeed, our goal is neither to make you spend too much money (fruits and vegetables are already quite expensive) nor to advise you on absolutely unobtainable foods.
Without further ado, here are our top 10 negative calorie foods for weight loss:
1. Green beans
Green beans are about 20-25 calories per 100 grams. They’re full of fiber and protein, which keeps you feeling full longer. You can cook them with a little oil to make the caloric intake a little more reasonable.
With around 30 calories/100g, lemon is slightly more caloric than beans but it helps reduce water retention, which is a source of weight gain. Plus, lemons are high in potassium and vitamin C… Don’t forget to eat the pulp, that’s where most of the good nutrients are.
Tomatoes are easy to prepare and low in calories. Plus, the lycopene in tomatoes helps your skin fight free radicals and slow down the aging process. However, try to consume tomatoes mainly from May to November.
Carrots are a very good source of vitamin A, which is a powerful antioxidant. They’re also high in fiber and low in calories, which will help you feel full longer.
The perfect appetite suppressant. This fruit is rich in pectin, which helps you lose weight by reducing your calorie intake and lowering cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It’s also a great way to keep your digestive system healthy.
Like lemons, grapefruits are very low in calories and help fight water retention. They also contain vitamin C, which keeps you full longer.
Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries… High in fiber and low in calories, berries are high in fiber and will keep you full longer. Plus, berries are excellent when it comes to antioxidant nutrients.
This vegetable is very low in calories, rich in water and fiber. Cucumber seeds will also require a lot of energy for digestion. It also contains silica, which helps your skin stay hydrated and fresh. In addition, cucumber would also be a natural calming agent (anti-stress and anxiety).
Spinach is an excellent source of protein, fiber, vitamins A and C… This vegetable will help you fight cravings for higher calorie foods while keeping your digestive system healthy. In addition, spinach contains betaine which is known to optimize the metabolism of fats and sugars.
Onions are full of antioxidants and, like lemons, they help you lose water weight. It is even said that eating onions prevents the possible formation of blood clots. They are also an essential ingredient for stews or sauces with no added calories.
