Our expert says:
Yes, there are some foods that have such a low energy of kJ-content that one can regard them as "negative energy foods". These are: lettuce, cucumber, gherkins, tomatoes, watercress, sweet peppers, the cabbage family, mushrooms, all the berries, grapefruit, spinach, etc. The problem is that one cannot survive on these foods alone and that they are often cooked with other energy-rich foods (e.g. mushrooms fried in butter), so that after cooking they are no longer so low in energy!
