Negative calorie foods have acquired a great deal of popularity of late for their ability to accelerate the weight loss process. Negative calorie foods are those that consume more energy during their digestion than the amount of energy they possess.

Here are some negative calorie foods that you could include in your diet: 

Celery: It has 16 kcal/100g. Celery is rich in fibre, vitamin A, C and folate. It is one of the most popular negative calorie foods as most of its calorie value is stored in cellulose. Our body receives very few calories from celery as it is full of undigested fibre.
