Are negative calories real?

  1. The vast majority of the products we eat contain energy. This is expressed in kilocalories (kcal). Food not only provides energy, digesting food also costs energy. By negative calories is meant food in which digestion in the body would require more energy than the food provides your body with energy. This is a myth, because there are no such foods.

Foods with negative calories?

  1. There are several stories circulating about foods that contain negative calories. An example is (pale) celery. The digestion of these would require more energy than the energy they add to the body. This would mean that the weight would drop if you eat more of these products. This is a fable. So negative calories do not exist. If you lose weight, it has other causes, such as changes in eating habits and increased physical activity. How to lose weight healthy.

Energy intake, energy consumption and energy balance

  1. The amount of energy required to process food is small compared to the energy the food provides. Only 10% of the total energy your body needs per day is used for fat and food processing. Other important factors that cost energy are your basal or resting metabolism (a person's energy expenditure at rest; about 60%) and your physical activity (about 30%). So energy goes into your body through eating and drinking and energy goes out of your body. If you take in as much energy as you consume over a longer period of time, you will not gain weight. You call that the energy balance.
