    Talking Is this theory true or just plain stupid ( eating vegetable and calorie burning)

    Saw an article on the internet that says if you eat vegetables they are very low in calorie but the body needs to digest them and this process requires a lot more calorie.

    That would mean eating a 5 calorie piece of celeri would require 100 calories to digest by the human body.

    Is that crap or it makes sense?????

    Yup.. Fibrous veggies take more calories to burn than they provide nutritionally. I don't know about the 100:5 ratio though.

    Just eat a 700 calorie main meal with fat in it then you'll have nothing to worry about.

    Yup, true. Just like your body expends energy to bring ice water to body temperature when you drink it...
