What Are Zero Calorie Foods?
So-called “zero-calorie” foods, like celery and cucumbers, contain fewer calories than the body uses to break them down. They are excellent diet foods because they help you feel full and gain nutrients, without any risk of weight gain.
These are what I call “free foods” and “almost free foods.” “Free foods” are those that have 25 calories or less per reasonable serving. “Almost free foods” have 25 to 60 calories per reasonable serving.
Many vegetables that are high in water and fiber content end up being “free” or “almost free.” It’s worth noting that while some people claim that you shouldn’t eat fruits while dieting because they contain too many sugars, most fruits are actually fairly low in calfories.
You’ll find these foods in your supermarket.
