According to popular belief, the amount of calories it takes to digest certain foods, such as celery, lettuce, cucumber, cabbage, asparagus, chilli, grapefruit and papaya, is actually more than the amount of calories in the foods themselves.
So the theory goes: if you eat 100 calories worth of food that takes 150 calories to digest you’ve burnt an additional 50 calories…sounds impressive. So if you simply eat kilos worth of these sorts of foods you’ll lose weight? Where do we sign up?
