We all want our favorite chocolate cookie or doughnut to have zero calories. While this kind of fantasy still remains just food dreams, the truth is there are really foods that are ridiculously low in calories but full with nutrients. They can speed up your metabolism, help with your weight loss issues and boost your immune system.
So what’s really the theory behind zero calories foods? Zero calories foods, free foods or negative calories foods contain very small amount of calories and they practically burn more calories to digest than they contain. This means that you don’t take any excess calories and sometimes you end up burning more calories than you eat. Whether this theory is accurate or not, still remains true that there are some foods, especially fruits and vegetables that you walk by in your grocery store every day, that contain less than 100 calories per serving and are very high in fibers.
We definitely recommend you to fill you fridge with these flavorful, nutrient-rich foods that fit nicely in your health and weight-loss goals. Instead of accumulating fat, start burning more calories on a daily basis. If you still aren’t convinced just think about all that exercising you need to do so you could burn off that pepperoni pizza.
The good news is that because of their lack of calories, you can eat unlimited quantities of zero calories foods without gaining any body fat. They work the same way as it does the act of drinking one glass of water before meal. With this proven strategy for staying fit you’ll fill your stomach with water and thereby there isn’t a lot of space left for consuming real foods. It’s the same with fruits and vegies that are full with water which takes up the space in your belly. When you feel stuffed, your stomach which by the way has its own nervous system, tells your brain that it’s time for you to stop eating.
I know what you are thinking about fresh fruits and veggies, they are not as good as pizza, meat or pasta, but that’s entirely wrong claim. You don’t have to be rabbit to enjoy these healthy foods. You can find thousands of recipes on the web that will teach you how to cook healthy but delicious dishes containing fresh foods. You can also make some “free” calories dips to dress these snacks up.
