There are many different types of foods to eat to lose weight. The types we are going to focus on in this short article are “catabolic” foods. These are food sources that actually burn more calories when consumed than they contain.
These types of foods are said to have ‘negative calories’ because the end result is that your body has used more calories than were absorbed! For example an apple of medium size will provide an average of 85 calories, however your metabolism would require an additional 99 calories to metabolize it. As a result, you burn calories and potentially more fat! An apple is a prime example of the kind of foods to eat to lose weight.
We all know that if you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight – this is a basic principle of weight loss.

The general consensus is that you should be eating ten servings of catabolic foods if you are seeking to maintain weight loss.
