I'm surprised so many people still believe a lot of the diet/health "tips" that so called experts spout to get people to listen to them. Doing a little research before trying any sort of diet goes on a long way into staying healthy and safe.

Ice water is similar. It takes energy to digest cold water because your body needs to bring it up to the same temperature as you. Of course it's not a lot of calories to do that.

That's a myth and a quick Google search would have debunked that idea. Also "guilt free" is ridiculous, calories are required for life out shouldn't make someone feel guilty for consuming a required substance.

No, #50, I understood the meaning of the idiom, but the way that you're using it here just doesn't make sense. Are you just calling the OP a moron to be a dick? Are you trying to be funny by being harsh and bitter?

i just go all the way, and dismiss all known diet plans as idiotic. every human is different from the other. no standard plan will work. the extent that you can feel safe in trusting is that at least some exercise is good, and you need to eat some food to not die.

The only diet plans you shouldn't debunk as idiotic right away are ones a doctor prescribes to you. But if you found it online or in a book, don't just blindly follow it.

i would still be wary of doctors. they are, after all, not a specifically trained nutritionist. all he can do is tell you to cut back on salt, cause otherwise your heart will explode violently. or something to that effect.

I'm surprised your so knowledgable in a subject that simple math proves wrong... I did your little Google search. It gives six calories but 10 calories is what is needed to digest it. ??

What does #32? I didn't mention a specific food. Just in general. It's good to do all sorts of research before embarking on a diet - especially a fad one like those juice diets or whatever. Some are really dangerous to your body.

#32 it takes less than 10 to digest celery since a good portion of it cannot be digested much closer to only 2 or 3. There are no foods that give "negative calories" and no exact amount of calories to digest every food, they all vary dependant on food and other factors. A Google search would have explained that too.

So all of you saying to google the celery myth. You should probably actually do a little research. No you don't burn off the calories chewing it though. It just takes your body more energy to digest the celery then the celery provides. So yes it is a negative calorie food. You're welcome

Celery contains roughly 6 calories per stalk, and takes half a calorie to eat. It has next to no thermogenic effect. To be calorie negative, the thermogenic effect would need to be 100%

Well considering your body can not metabolize half of the calories in celery, because of cellulose, you only have to burn 3 of the calories which will happen in the digestion process. Again please do your research.
