For those trying to lose weight there are many different weight loss methods and programs as well as diets that can be followed to help with this. While there are a number to choose from, one that many people consider is negative calorie foods. This concept is based on foods where it is considered that the number of calories required to consume and digest them is greater than the actual calorific value of the food. Therefore rather than starving yourself of food, if you eat negative calorie foods it staves of the hunger pangs and the very fact you are eating them is said to potentially help you burn calories.
