    One more tip:
    Apple stands first in the list of negative calorie foods (i.e calories obtained by eating one apple is less than calories required to digest them).
    There are instances that people has lost weight by eating such negative calorie foods
    some of them for instances are:
    1. apple
    2.cranberries
    3.blueberries
    4. papaya
    5.oranges
    6. grape fruit etc. etc. will soon post the complete list
    THIS MEANS U CAN EAT THESE FOOD AS MUCH AS U CAN, AND YET REDUCE WEIGHT.
    ITS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVED.
    EAT EAT AND EAT

    REGARDS

    While all foods contain at least some calories, there are some that are classified as negative calorie foods due to their overall affect on the body. This simply means that these particular foods use more caloric energy to eat and digest than they actually contain to begin with. The calories from these types of foods are more difficult to breakdown and process, making the body work harder to digest them, thus burning more than the food’s original caloric content.
    If we gain weight when we take in more calories than we expend, it only stands to reason that if we take in less calories than we burn, we will then lose weight. Roughly ten percent of our total daily caloric intake is actually used to process and digest the foods that we’ve eaten. If we decrease the calories we ingest, add more negative calorie foods to our diets while increasing our level of physical activity, the result is healthy weight loss and an elevated metabolism.
    A perfect example is a piece of cake that contains roughly 400 calories, but that also uses up 150 of those calories to eat and digest it. This then leaves a net gain of 250 calories, which of course turn into fat. Now, if instead you decided to eat a salad that contained 250 calories, but uses 400 calories to completely digest, you will have actually burned 150 calories simply by eating the salad. If you ate a piece of fruit that contained 100 calories but used up 200 calories worth during the digestion process, you will have burned an extra 100 calories just by eating the fruit.
    The more negative calories that you can incorporate into your diet while maintaining a regular exercise program, the more fat you will ultimately burn. Negative calorie foods should always be prepared fresh and naturally without any added ingredients such as butter or salt, which would only counteract the food’s negative caloric affects. Negative calorie foods generally have a high fiber content, which is essential for dieters as it allows the body to feel fuller longer. Fiber also causes the body to work harder to process and breakdown the foods we’ve eaten.
    Although water isn’t considered a food, ice cubes can be used as a negative calorie source. Water contains no calories at all, but the body must put forth energy to consume the ice, and also to compensate for the decrease in body temperature. Many dieters use frozen sugar-free juice cubes as healthy treats that also require the expenditure of more calories than they actually contain.
    When following a diet rich with negative calorie foods, it’s important to remember that these foods are comprised mostly of water and fiber, and while they are healthy, they also lack key nutrients, proteins, and certain vitamins and minerals that the body needs to thrive.
    Some vegetables that are considered to be negative calorie foods are:
    Asparagus
    Beets
    Broccoli
    Cabbage
    Carrots
    Cauliflower
    Celery
    Chili peppers
    Cucumbers
    Endives
    Garlic
    Leeks
    Lettuce
    Onions
    Peppers
    Radishes
    Spinach
    Turnips
    Zucchini


    Some fruits that are considered to be negative calorie foods are:
    Apples
    Blackberries
    Blueberries
    Cranberries
    Guava
    Grapefruit
    Honey dew melons
    Lemons
    Limes
    Mangoes
    Oranges
    Peaches
    Pineapple
    Plums
    Raspberries
    Tangerines
    Tomatoes
    Watermelon

    From this u can get and idea of how naturally foods make u loose
    weight. Try eating fruits empty stomach or before meals or
    as an snack 2-3 hrs. after the meal. It adds glow to ur whole
    body's skin and reduce weight too. Not to forget that a healthy
    diet of rest of the other foods have to be followed as well coupled with
    exercises

    More gud news abt apple

    Here are ten good reasons why that platitude ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor way’ even exists in the first place!
    1. First, the most important - eating around three apples a day when you are dieting not only kills your appetite for junk, but also helps you lose weight. Apples have a low calorie-content and virtually no fat!
    2. Apples contain ‘pectin’, a complex carbohydrate, which helps lower your cholesterol level.
    3. Apples are great for your gums and teeth.
    4. Apples contain antioxidants that are said to prevent the risk for breast cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer and lung cancer.
    5. Apples aid digestion. Is that oily food you’re consuming that’s bound to give you acidity? Balance it by beginning the meal with an apple!
    6. The phenolics (naturally occurring antioxidants) in an apple can prevent the manifestation of neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
    7. Apples are good for your bones and prevent osteoporosis in menopausal women.
    8. The pectin in apples once again comes to your rescue by managing diabetes and asthma.
    9. Flavanoids are chemicals in an apple that are far superior to plain old Vitamin C and work harder by reducing your heart disease and stroke risk by almost 26%!
    10. Apple products contain fruit sugars that are an instant source of energy. The next time you need a jolt, just have some fresh apple juice, yes?
    A word of caution – before eating an apple, wash it carefully as it is probably treated with pesticides and polished with wax.
