Negative-Calorie foods, are foods that actually take more energy to digest than they deliver to your body. These foods have a surprising lack of calories and can essentially be consumed in unlimited quantities without you gaining weight (body fat). This works because your stomach senses when it is physically full, and it will trigger your brain to stop eating when you can’t handle more food. The simple act of drinking a glass of water before each meal is a proven weight loss strategy. It fills your belly with water, thereby reducing the amount of space left for other foods. So your stomach gets full more quickly, triggering the “stop eating” signals in your brain. A common property among all negative-calorie foods is they all contain a lot of water locked in a fibrous matrix. Apples are essentially “water fruits,” as are grapes and watermelons (hence the name). Many vegetables are also “water vegetables,” meaning that they’re loaded with water. The more water you consume in your foods, the more quickly you’ll feel full and stop eating. Water, it turns out, is the most effective appetite control substance in the world.
