Well celery use more calories chewing it than calories gained by consuming it
Some foods really do have negative calories (such as celery which takes more calories to chew than are actually in the food) but obviously just because a food is healthy doesnt mean its guilt free.
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.
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.
#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
