    I don't know of much / any that really are.

    Cold water, perhaps

    celery is known to be one of them. It takes more energy to chew/digest than it provides.

    It's pretty much ineffective as "negative calories". Just sitting there burns quite a bit, and chewing and digesting celery won't ramp it up a whole heap.

    Does sugar free chewing gum count?
    Chewing = 1 cal of work
    consumed cals = 0

    0-1 = -1 cal :eek3:

    Not eating a slice of bread would probably have the same effect as drinking 4L of ice water, and be less damaging to your stomach.

    Im gonna assume the extra energy burnt on digesting some celery or whatever will be negligible anyways.

    Nevermind I guess, I thought I had heard it was bad on the lining but couldn't find any articles.
    Just an FYI: 16OZ ice cold water will burn 17.5 cals :ugh2:
