More Insights Into Negative Calorie Foods

In the first part of this, we explored primarily vegetables that take more calories to digest than the item contains. This part focuses on fruit. They weren’t lying when they said that people should eat more fruit and vegetables in their diets, even if a person prefers to eat a lot of meat. Many of the fruits in this list can be used to enhance the flavor of meat, in fact.

One thing that you might notice is that all of these fruits are high in water content, most are high in fiber, and most contain antioxidants. This is a commonality among fruits that are negative calorie. It also helps when the fruits are kinds that most people enjoy. Which do you especially like?

#8 Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe is negative calorie and it is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. Cantaloupe also contains dietary fiber, antioxidants, and lots of water.

#9 Raspberries

Besides being delicious, raspberries are another negative calorie food that is high in both vitamin C and manganese. They are also surprisingly high in dietary fiber. A cup of raspberries supplies about a third of the daily requirement for fiber.

#10 Pineapple

Pineapple is negative calorie, very high in vitamin C, very high in manganese, high in copper, high in dietary fiber, high in antioxidants, and raw pineapple contains substances that ease joint pain and swelling. This means that it isn't just delicious and healthy, it is great for diabetics, people on diets, and people suffering from arthritis. If that isn't enough, pineapple is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B6.

    • I totally love fresh pineapple, though it is expensive, once I learned how to properly peel them. There is a youtube video of a person peeling and coring a pineapple in less than a minute!

    • The key with pineapple is that the substance is destroyed with the application of heat, so it must be raw pineapple and not canned or bottled. If you want to research the substance, by the way, it is called bromelain. It is really a remarkable substance.
