Eat Right: Zero-Calorie Foods List

Zero-Calorie Foods List

A food is considered “zero-calorie” when the calories burned through its consumption and digestion are less than or equal to the total calories in the food itself. This means that from eating these foods alone, there is potential for a net loss of calories from the body. This negative energy balance is a biological necessity in order to lose weight.
 
Each of these foods has fewer than 50 calories per 100 gram serving:

1.    Cucumber
2.    Apple
