The Best Low (or No) Calorie Foods

Watching your calories can also mean watching yourself eat through your daily allowed amount rather quickly.

Luckily eDiets has created a short list of easy foods that are very low calorie or calorie free. What does this mean? Well it means that you should be able to eat (or drink) a lot of these foods and not have to worry about breaking out your calculator.

  1. Hot tea with Splenda
  2. Berries
  3. Citrus Fruit
  4. Sugar free Jell-O
  5. Egg whites prepared with non stick spray
  6. Crunchy Veggies
  7. Water

Ok so green tea is good for you and even helps when trying to lose weight but ... I once heard that if you are on the pill that it affects the effectiveness of the pill. Anyone have any advice on this???

mme hart, you are probably a little allergic. i agree with list. watch citrus fruits though. they can be really high in sugar though it's natural and full of nutrients. don't cut it out, but realize that it's not a "free food," though if you're cutting calories, fruits and veggies are the LAST place you should be cutting followed by healthy proteins (egg whites, chicken breast, most fishes, shrimp but watch the cholesterol, and turkey). tea is also an amazing way to get all sorts of antioxidants. if you're trying to quit coffee, try green tea. if you hate the grassy taste though, yerba mate is YUM and about 5 cals/tea bag. For those with tummy issues (gas, indigestion, mild acid reflux), peppermint tea and ginger tea can relieve these issues. For those who are backed up, senna tea is a great option but use with caution. It's the active ingredient in ex-lax and the first time i used it, i drank about 4 cups. BIG mistake.

awwww eggs make me sick :( I always think egg-white (can you say that??) omelettes look yummy, but there is no way I could eat one and be happy 10 minutes later! :oops:

I'm big on the egg whites and have them every morning for breakfast on a whole wheat tortilla with zero trans fats. Yummy! And if I ever get crazy hungry even when I've eaten all I should for the day, I'll have egg whites because they're almost like a free food.

My co-worker recently got a personal trainer, and we were talking diet plans with our manager. Guess what I heard:1 bag of plain popcorn, the WHOLE BAG is only 60 calories.
