Certain foods once ingested have a negative caloric effect on your body. These are foods of a low glycemic index which require your body to burn more calories for digesting them than their own caloric content. Hence they produce a negative calorie effect on our body. The body burns stored fat as a source of energy to make up for this calorie deficit. Also since these foods have a high fibre content so one feels satiated longer thereby reducing hunger pangs and food cravings. So one eats less and consumes only healthy foods which lead to weight loss. These foods give a boost to one’s BMR and enzyme production and kickstart the fat burning magic. These foods are powerhouses of vitamins and minerals leaving one feeling fresh, satisfied and full of life.

So go on and give it a try. To accelerate the effect of negative calorie foods we must focus on a healthy lifestyle which includes 45 minutes of brisk exercise. Brisk walking, power yoga, swimming, playing tennis or any other sport not only boosts one’s BMR but also keeps one more energetic and furthers a positive outlook towards life. It is always a combination of healthy eating in the right proportions along with a fitness regimen which goes a long way in boosting our immune system, keeping us active, happy and enhancing our lifestyle. However busy we may be, always remember that our foremost responsibility is towards our own wellbeing. Only then can we hope to make a difference in other people’s lives.
