Diet Doc Medical Director Warns Against the Faulty Science of the 'Negative Calorie Diet'

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 16, 2017) - Recent fad diet plan, the Negative Calorie Diet, purports that some foods require more energy to chew and digest and that energy expenditure can burn more calories than the foods actually contain. Celery is probably the best example of a "negative calorie food" due to its solid makeup of fiber and water. The idea is that chewing and digesting celery will somehow burn more calories than the celery initially provided. However, experts agree that the negative calorie notion is not backed up by the science and that calories burned by digesting and chewing are miniscule at best.

Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc Medical Weight Loss agrees with the experts and explains that, "The physiology of burning food is very low in comparison to total energy requirements. Foods that make up the 'negative calorie list' are essentially high fiber and water with little carbohydrates, protein or fat." These three make up the only macronutrients available in the diet. There is also no research which indicates that these foods actually have a negative calorie effect. Dr. Rao continues, "What happens, is that by eating primarily from a list of foods which are high in fiber and water, calories intake tends to be very low and weight loss occurs as a result," and warns that, "without adequate protein and carbohydrates muscle (a major fat burning component) will also be lost." Diet Doc recommends that a diet should provide enough protein to prevent the loss of muscle or fat will likely return as the result of a sluggish metabolism. Medical experts at Diet Doc will calculate protein, fat and carbohydrate needs for each patient based on height, weight, age, and activity level to ensure that all individuals can achieve quick weight loss using scientifically sound measures.
