I think either that or they just dont add anything to what you take in, I got the info from a diet site on about.com

I read it about celery...what happens is that they have very few calories and to digest them, your body requires more calories to burn that there are in the fruit so you can eat and burn at the same time.

Dude thats awesome! I love green beans, will I still be burning or at least not adding calories if I ate a fairly large amount at once (like a whole can of green beans? thats 140 calories)?

The new catabolic diet (created in the 1920's, by the way) does have a drawback to it. If you look at it, you are going to have a massive % of your daily intake from carbs with low protein and fat intake. I think this would equate to a lot of muscle loss.

From what I recall, the diet states you should eat something like 3 pounds of the negative foods per day.

Could you throw some catabloic foods into your diet as snack foods? Like set up a 2000 calorie cuting program and then eat an apple or an orange when you get hungry since you're not consuming any extra calories?

Don't apples and oranges (and a lot of other foods on that list)have like 15g sugar each? If so how can that possibly act as a negative or just a neutral?

I don't think that list is right at all. Watermelons for example are very high glycemic. By definition, it would have to be very easy to digest for it to hit your bloodstream fast.

I would stick to high fiber green veggies like romaine lettuce, brocoli, green beans, celery.
