4 Foods with Very Low Calorie Counts

4 Foods with Very Low Calorie Counts

At the end of the day, even the most complex diets come down to a simple fact: consume fewer calories and you will lose weight. However, this is easier said than done, largely because we are so used to eat chips, cookies, candy, and other high-calorie snacks in-between meals. If you are looking for some very low-calorie snacks to replace the typical lineup of chips and candy you are in luck because in this article, you will see 4 foods that have almost no calories.

Celery

While it isn’t very exciting, munching on celery is great because it is an extremely low-calorie snack. How low-calorie exactly? Well, for a long time it was actually considered to be a negative calorie food (which means you burned more calories eating it than you gained from the celery). While that is a common myth, it is based on some facts. Two very large pieces of celery will contain roughly 25 calories. Add some seasoning and you have a delicious snack that is high in fiber and contains basically no calories.

Carrots

Although the idea that they are good for your eyes is a myth, carrots are still a wonder food for those on a diet. A regular sized carrot contains roughly 25 to 30 calories. So, you can chop up a bunch of carrots and not even reach 100 total calories. This is of course not mentioning all the various nutritional benefits of carrots. Add in some low-calorie, low-fat dip and you have an amazing snack to replace chips and dip.

Jell-O

This entry probably caught your eye, after all, so far, we have only listed vegetables, which, while healthy, are a bit boring. However, there are some fun and interesting snacks that also manage to be extremely low in calories. One such example is Jell-O, more specifically, sugar-free Jell-O. Sugar-free Jell-O tastes great and has a whopping 10 calories per serving. If you want to satisfy a sweet tooth without loading up on calories, it isn’t a bad option.

Pickles

Pickles are a great snack option. Your average pickle has roughly 10 or so calories in it. So, you can chow down on a bunch and not even come close to 100 calories. What really makes pickles great is how flavorful they are. They aren’t just your average boring vegetable, they have a lot of kick to them and you can even make your own quite easily.
