The Power of Zero

For all the weight-watchers out there - did you know that ‘zero calorie foods’ actually exist? Too good to be true? Let us tell you what ‘zero calorie’ actually means. Basically a food item that burns more calories in our body than they contain. It is recommended that ideally men should consume 2500 calories per day and women should consume 2000 calories.

We give you a list of easily available food items that contain NO calories so you can reduce your calorie intake by at least a hundred. This will help with any joint pains, reduce the risk of heart disease and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. There is no catch to it. It is just good old bunch of food items we just don’t appreciate enough. Of course, the most important thing to remember is to follow the rule of moderation and eat a balanced diet. Your body needs a balanced amount of nutrients to create energy.
So stop eating CRAP - Carbonated drinks, Refined sugars, Artificial food and Processed food. Eat these foods instead and give your body a break! It surely deserves it.

You need not eat these food items as mentioned - mix and match and prepare a delicious meal out of it.

For instance, blend together apples, cantaloupe and blueberries for a filling smoothie. You can make a watermelon, mango and pineapple salad for a mid morning snack. Chop some celery sticks and chomp on them with some hummus or yoghurt and mint dip. Add kale and spinach to your green juice as a great post-workout supplement.

So next time you are feeling hungry, don’t grab the ice cream tub or an energy bar, pick one of the food items on your list and stay healthy.
