Negative calorie celery

Celery has so little calories that we actually burn more chewing and eating it than it actually contains. Why can't hamburgers be zero calories?

I like celery, but the problem is that I usually like it covered with cream cheese or peanut butter. I've been eating it plain or with hummus when I want to snack on something and I am starting to like it better this way.

Actually I've heard that's a myth, but I don't really know the truth about celery either way. Where did you get your information? I don’t like hummus or peanut butter, so if I’m eating celery, it’s plain or with cream cheese or ranch.

Yes if only it was the same for burgers!


I'm not too keen on celery unless it has a topping like cream cheese, peanut butter or Marmite.

It's not entirely a myth. I'd say that you could pretty much eat as much celery as you'd like without gaining a pound. It's all the goodies we cram onto the celery before munching it.

Cucumber has zero calories! Try the hummus with the the sweet pepper variety.
They are very low in calories and full of vitamins and minerals!
Happy snacking

Oh how I wish burgers had zero calories! I would eat one a day. I like to dip my celery in fat free blue cheese dressing. I also love to another it with peanut butter!

I've heard that "negative-calorie concept" is a myth, too, although I'd still say that eating celery is good for you because it's fresh produce. I'd like to see more info on it, though.
