All calories are not created equal. Eating high quality calories is the trick to achieving and maintaining weight loss...and that's the concept of Rocco Dispirito's newest cookbook, ‘The Negative Calorie Diet.’
That is the reason why most weight-loss diets, which merely reduce caloric intake, ultimately fail. Indeed, scientific research shows that eating high-quality calories helps fuel your metabolism and helps your body burn them, while eating low-quality calories is linked to weight gain. In his latest book, ‘The Negative Calorie Diet’: Lose up to 10 Pounds in 10 Days with 10 All-You-Can-Eat Foods celebrity chef and #1 New York Times bestselling author Rocco DiSpirito explains how real health and real weight loss come from a whole-foods diet rich in negative calorie foods.
What are negative calorie foods? Rocco shares the Top 10, which become the backbone of his eating play and the basis for more than 70 original, easy-to-make Negative Calorie Recipes for meals, snacks, smoothies, and even desserts, included in the book. The list of delicious options includes almonds, apples, berries, celery, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower and Brussels sprouts), cucumbers, leafy greens (including Swiss chard, spinach, and kale), mushrooms, and nightshade vegetables (including peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant).
‘The Negative Calorie Diet’ is a built on a 30-day plan that jumpstarts healthy lifestyle changes for the long haul. It begins with a 10-day cleanse to detox the body and prepare it for the benefits of a nutrient-rich, whole-foods diet. This is followed by a 20-day meal plan, built on protein and supplemented by negative calorie foods, spices, and an array of super foods bursting with flavor and health-promoting, fat-burning benefits.
Rocco DiSpirito is a James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef and the author of 11 highly acclaimed books, including three back-to-back #1 New York Times bestsellers. Rocco has starred on numerous television shows and can currently be seen as Healthy Food Coach on Extreme Weight Loss.
