To lose weight naturally, without making too many sacrifices and without resorting to a drastic diet, you can follow the diet of negative calories. A diet that, as the name suggests, sees the use of all those foods that provide less energy than the body burns to chew them and digest them.

An example? The apple: eating a whole 100 grams gives us about 50 kcal, the same ones that the body uses to “manage” it. So you get your fill of vitamins and minerals but don’t get fat.

Obviously, before following the negative calorie diet it is necessary to ask your doctor for advice, and have an expert follow you: it is certainly not possible to ingest only this type of food every day, but it will be necessary to insert them in a balanced regime designed to lose weight in a healthy way, and to avoid food shortages.

negative caloriesIf you only want to consume foods with negative calories, you can do it periodically for only 24 hours. In this way, fat deposits are affected and you lose about 400-500 grams. What to bet on? In addition to drinking a lot of water, asparagus, chard, carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, chicory, green beans, peas, spinach, tomatoes, apples, grapefruit, berries are required. Doing two days a month, the body is purged, it is deflated, water retention is fought and blood sugar levels are kept under control.

In a day of dieting with negative calorie foods, you can drink as soon as you wake up a glass of warm lemon water, followed after a couple of hours by an apple (if you want you can drink coffee, but strictly without sugar). For lunch, go ahead for a salad of green beans, asparagus and peas, seasoned only with apple vinegar, lemon juice and chili pepper. For dinner, boiled beets and a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers and raw red onions. And if you are hungry between meals, you can break it with a celery, lime and ginger shake.
