Losing weight with negative calories

There are foods that burn more calories than the number of calories they provide to the body. In this way they help to lose the excess kilos. They are called ‘anti-fat foods’, ‘foods with a negative calorie value’ or ‘foods that help burn fat deposits’.

1 or 2 hunger suppressants or digestive improvers fifteen minutes before the meal

To take away the feeling of hunger and prepare your stomach for the upcoming meal, you can take 1 or 2 bites of:

  • 4 or 5 oil nuts
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 2 small raw carrots
  • 2 cubes of cheese

Chew this away slowly, so that the sugar level in the blood will rise. The stomach is stimulated by this small amount of food and starts to produce the necessary juices required for proper digestion. As a result, the digestion of the meal itself will take place under optimal conditions and it can be properly processed in the intestinal tract.

Always start your meal with a small amount of lettuce, which is very finely chopped . Chew the lettuce very slowly and consciously. If desired, eat a few pieces of whole wheat bread.

You can then continue the meal as normal. You will soon notice that your hunger is satisfied more quickly and that your food is digested better.

The foods

What are the least energy-dense foods? Foods that require high calorie consumption for their conversion? Foods that help improve the burning of fatty foods?

All these foods should satisfy your taste and appetite, but should not put extra strain on the stomach and intestines.


It is not good to drink a lot during meals. Too much fluid dilutes the digestive juices and prevents proper digestion of food.
A glass of water at room temperature is best to drink during a meal.

It is best to drink a glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach and around 5 p.m. when your stomach is also empty.

You can drink unlimited:

  • water
  • wine (Bordeaux or Beaujolais)
  • Chinese tea
  • various herbal infusions


You should eat at least 1 fruit per day. You should not eat this just before, not immediately after or during meals.

The digestion of fruits is different from that of other foods and therefore it is better to eat fruits separately.
It is also not wise to mix all kinds of fruit together. You can eat fruit of the same type at the same time.

  • oranges, tangerines, lemons
  • peaches and apricots
  • apples and pears

Certain fruits can be made into a fruit salad, because these fruits promote the digestion of proteins:

  • pineapples
  • strawberries
  • grapefruit
  • tangerines
  • papayas
  • blueberries


  • green or white cabbage
  • celeriac or celeriac
  • zucchini (unpeeled)
  • spinach
  • onion (raw or cooked)
  • asparagus
  • artichokes
  • pumpkins
  • fennel
  • watercress
  • Spanish peppers
  • carrots
  • beets

It is not necessary to eat large amounts of these vegetables. It is better to mix small amounts in a salad or in starchy products. Large amounts of these vegetables can overload the digestive system. So consume small amounts (in a salad or together with other vegetables) and these special vegetables will promote smooth absorption and the burning of fat-producing foods.

Dairy products

Yogurt, cream and cheese are necessary additions to a balanced diet.

  • Yogurt can replace oil in a salad
  • Eat a bowl of yogurt on an empty stomach in the morning to alternate with the usual glass of water
  • milk can be used in soups and desserts or can be drunk as an ‘appetite suppressant’; preferably drink the milk warm


Starchy products are necessary for a balanced diet and contain natural substances that promote digestion.

It is preferable to only consume a starchy lunch dish, without meat and with a minimum of fat and little sugar. You can add fruit or fat-digesting vegetables.

Bread or rusk?

You can compare a rusk with a slice of bread, make no mistake about this!!

Bread is more digestible if it is slightly less fresh. In any case, chew it well.

Bread rich in gluten contains fewer carbohydrates.


Macaroni, spaghetti, lasagna can all be used, as long as they are considered a complete dish. Season these dishes with spices, add a teaspoon of cream and serve with a tomato salad.

Meat and fish

Meat and fish occupy an important place in our diet. Only use fish and meat with meals that contain no or very little starchy products.


As a complete dish, eggs work very well. If you use eggs as part of a dish, you will quickly become fat
