The Negative Calorie Diet - Can This Be Real?

The Negative Calorie Diet - Can This Be Real?

Foods That Cause You to Lose Weight:: The Negative Calorie Effect (Mass Market Paperback)
by Neal Barnard M.D.

You have probably heard of the Negative Calorie Diet, sometimes referred to as the Catabolic Diet. On the surface, it sounds like a dieters dream. The more you eat, the more weight you lose. Can this be real?

Of course, there is no such thing as a food that contains negative calories. Every food contains calories. The idea behind the Negative Calorie diet is to eat catabolic foods, or negative calorie foods that burn more calories to digest that what they put back.

Surprisingly, strictly based on numbers, this is entirely possible, but it should be noted that there is no scientific evidence to verify it.

For example, if you eat an orange that hypothetically contains 80 calories, you gain 80 calories. But if that same orange uses 110 calories to digest, you lose 30 calories.

Since your body needs 110 calories to digest the orange and the orange only provides 80, where does it get the other 30 calories? It would come from the stored fat in your body.

A study of 2,300 Italians dietary habits found a relationship between high bread eating and renal cell carcinoma. The researchers warn that pasta and rice could also increase the risk and at the same time eating more vegetables could lower a persons risk for this particular type of kidney cancer. The study was first published online in the October 20th edition of the International Journal of Cancer.

The most common kind of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Previously researchers found that diet may have contributed to an increased risk for developing renal cell carcinoma. They did not know which foods directly contributed to this increase which has spurred this new study led by Francesca Bravi of the Institute of Pharmacological Research "Mario Negri" in Milan who conducted a large case-controlled study of 2,301 Italians to determine which foods might increase a person’s risk.

Acomplia is a modest weight loss drug that suppresses appetite in the brain. Rimonabant (Acomplia) is currently selling in Europe since July and approval is currently pending with the Food and Drug Administration in the US.

The weight loss on average after a year of taking Acomplia was around 11 pounds. If a person continued to take the medication their weight did not come back, while those that were given a placebo after the year gained back their weight.

The study also instructed the participants to follow a “mild” low-calorie diet according to their body weight. The participants that took the higher dose of 20 milligrams had the most significant improvements on their weight, waist circumference, cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Benefits Of Eating Fish Outweigh Risk – New Study Recommends Moderate Consumption Of Seafood – List of Fish and Mercury Levels

Storey

Researchers say that the health benefits of eating fish outweigh the risks. Because of the mercury found in fish, there has been a debate as to whether the nutritional benefits offset the danger. Today The National Academy of Sciences released a White Paper saying that there is an overall benefit.

Dr. Maureen Storey, a University of Maryland expert and director of the Center for Food, Nutrition and Agriculture Policy (CFNAP), says “The government’s communication strategy on the risks and benefits of eating fish has not worked. People are confused. What has been lost in the emphasis on risk from mercury for some sub-populations, such as pregnant women, is the fact that many types of fish, especially those high in omega-3 fatty acids, have significant health benefits. People lose out on those benefits if they decrease fish consumption because they’re getting a mixed message.”
