Before anything else you should know that there’s a lot of controversy about the Negative Calorie Diet Plan. Ever since the Negative Calorie Diet e-book first came out more than a decade ago claiming that you'd lose up to 14 pounds in a week, this exclusively raw foods diet has received a lot of bad rap.
No wonder; after all, eating only certain foods from the "negative calorie food list" seems to be against everything we know about eating enough calories to avoid triggering your body's "starvation response", food cravings and sharp hunger pangs.
The plan claims that sticking with the negative calorie recipes (including the famous negative calorie diet soup) you can lose up to 14 lbs. in a week.
But 14 pounds in just 7 days is MUCH more than most fad diets claim.
However, the positive testimonials seemed real and I wanted to see for myself how this works.
Even after getting a lot of weight off staying on this plan for an entire week, I wasn't convinced that it would work for most people.
So I invited site visitors like you to share their experience with an updated version of this highly controversial Negative Calorie Diet Plan...
...a.k.a. the Ultimate Energy Diet.
To my surprise, I got quite a significant response - 137 people.
The vast majority said basically the same thing as Lisa, who was kind enough to share her story and agreed to be published here.
Lisa is a busy sales executive in her late 40's who emailed us this:
"Here's my background to understand where I'm coming from. I was struggling with more than 20 pounds for some time... always craving sweets, tired, with huge dark circles under my eyes and trying to get rid of my morning brain fog with three cups of coffee by lunch time.
I have a demanding schedule - I'm on my feet a lot. Most days my sit-down meals are 5-minute rushed feeds while working at my computer.
I used to munch all kinds of fatty snacks and sweets all day long to keep my energy up and by dinner time I'd be so hungry I couldn't resist the non-diet dishes my family eats. No big surprise that - although I'd been a diet junkie for years - my waistline got bigger and bigger, to my growing embarrassment and frustration.
So when I read about the Negative Calorie Diet and "eating for energy" I thought, Oh no, not ANOTHER diet! But then I said to myself, Well, let's see what's all about.
To be honest, at first I didn't think I'd go with the program; but after watching the presentation and seeing the bonuses offered, especially the 5-day Rapid Results Blueprint and smoothie recipes guides (plus the money back guarantee) I decided to give it a try. I thought, What if it DOES work?
So I went ahead and purchased this diet plan, although I didn't have much hope I'd drop more than a couple of pounds, like so many other times before.
How would I get through the day without my coffee and chocolate bars?
I must admit, the theory behind the Negative Calorie Diet is very tempting; but I was wondering if the plan would work for real.
It's based on a weird concept: that your body burns more calories to metabolize certain high-fiber negative calorie foods than it actually gets from these foods. As a result, your body enters a so-called "negative caloric balance" and burns stored fat to meet your daily energetic needs.
There's more to it, but in the end the negative calorie diet plan is a low-carb, low-fat alkaline diet that makes the body release a lot of toxins - and with them, the fat from the fat cells, which store this toxic load.
I wanted to make sure I won't be hungry, so each day I was eating every 2 or 3 hours a variety of colorful veggies and mixed salads that I was tossing each morning in separate plastic containers, with the suggested dressings on the side (the dressings are very yummy, by the way). Plus, I was sipping cold water (two 1-liter bottles) and green tea throughout the day and couldn't wait for the evening smoothies :)
Well, no hunger pangs; my energy level was pretty good and stable throughout the day without coffee - what a relief!
I went off this plan after the 7th day - just as the free negative calorie diet tips found on your site recommend.
I have to admit, I’ve only lost 10 pounds over these seven days, but I cheated with some cheese and broiled chicken breast a few times ;)
I intend to do another round again in a couple of weeks and really stick to it. The Negative Calorie Diet Plan worked for me. It may work just as well for you too - IF you follow it."
Keep in mind, Lisa's results aren't typical. The Negative Calorie Diet Plan is not for everybody; it is a stricter version of the raw food weight loss diet.
If you’re a meat lover, you could miss your meat. Also, you will get hungry if you don’t eat every 2-3 hours or so, and then you will have a hard time getting filled with just a salad.
But if you want to give it a try, here's how to...
...to make things MUCH easier for yourself.
Buy and prepare ahead the foods you need for a whole week at a time - here’s the list of negative calorie foods allowed.
Wash, cut and seal them up and toss them in the fridge; this way, you'll have them handy anytime. This is really important - you don’t want to come home from work in the evening without having a whole bunch of your "negative calorie diet" foods readily available.
Are you wondering whether you'll be hungry on this plan?
In fact, it doesn’t matter how much you eat. Just make sure you eat whenever you feel just a little hungry; eat until you feel satisfied, but not stuffed.
Basically, you'll want to eat every 2 or 3 hours.
Obviously, while on this diet you can’t have any alcohol, sugar, honey, or any sugar replacements (except stevia).
Also, you shouldn’t use any of the commercial dressings, as they all contain sugar and lots of fat.
Here are 2 yummy dressing recipes you can use freely for your salads or steamed vegetables while on the Negative Calorie Diet (there are many more included in the plan):
