I had come across a wonderful and informative article recently and since then had been wanting to share its valuable information with you all. I felt it will be useful for all my friends at the “Healthy you challenge”.
My mom is an avid believer of home remedies and we as a family always try to keep chemical medicines as distant to us as possible. This naturally passed on to me and now I follow the same principle. We strongly believe that
” If we keep on eating wrongly,No doctor can cure us;
if we eat rightly,No doctor is needed”
We all know that the best way to lead a healthy life is to “Eat Right and Exercise Well”. I have read this list of Super-foods and their medicinal values and couldn’t wait to post it here. Though many of these benefits are known to all of us,it doesn’t hurt to brush them up again. 🙂 ….. I am a lacto-vegan, so that explains the absence of certain foods….

WEIGHT LOSS THERAPY WITH NEGATIVE CALORIE FOODS
All foods have some calories. No food is completely negative calorie food.But the overall effect of certain food in our body is that of negative calories. They are foods which use more calories to digest than the calories the foods actually contain.
For Example : A piece of dessert consisting of 400 calories may require only 150 calories to be digested by our body, and the net gain of 250 calories is added to out body fat.So if you eat 100 calories of a food that requires 150 calories to digest,then you have burnt an additional 50 calories simply by eating that food. Thus,the more you eat,the more you lose weight.
There are large number of foods that combine low calories,delicious taste and excellent negative calorie properties. So no more starving : Eat these, lose that extra fat and get slim naturally. Here they are :
All fresh fruit,Nuts,Sea foods,vegetables,Whole grains etc are good for health,but the super-foods listed here have medicinal value along with their strength. So eat and enjoy them ! And always remember “Health is the best form of investment”.
