Please understand that the average person with little to no activity burns somewhere between 1800 and 2000 calories a day. You burn calories by sitting, sleeping, watching TV, doing the dishes, etc. For example, I am 23 years old, female and 165 pounds. Currently, without any exercise and only counting the things I do on a normal daily basis, my body burns approximately 1900 calories on it's own. Now, I, too have started a VLCD (very low calorie diet), but, I'm keeping it around 800-900 calories a day with a 30 minute jog and 20 minute walk.

Figure - if you naturally burn 1900 calories in a day just by living and then work out or play a sport which will bun another 600 min, you're burning 2500 calories a day. Eating 300 calories only will give you a 2200 calorie deficit daily. While it takes 1350 calories burned to lose 1 pound, this is a VERY unhealthy way of doing so.

Please do your research and don't start a vlcd diet that will kill you. Being thin is no help if you're 6 feet under....

I am underwieght but 5ft. 3 in. , but i am on a diet where you eat less calories than you burn for a week, and then you eat a little more the next week, and you continue for like a month, and that burns like a couple of pounds, but you have to make sure that this is not extreme, and that you are getting the recommended amounts of daily vitamins all the same, if you can do this then you aren't on an extremly un-healthy diet, but you do get results.

There's "no such thing" as negative calories. What people commonly call negative calories is just absence of calories or energy. (Like trying to explain zero) If you burn off the calories that you consumed for the day you then start burning excess energy (fat) that your body has stored.

There are calories in cucumber (irrespective of the 'negative calories' theory). All food provides calories. For the calorie content of cucumber according to portion size, both with and without peel, see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. In general the negative calories theory claims that it takes more energy (calories) to digest a food than the energy (calories) contained in that food. Whether this is possible and in that sense cucumbers can be "negative calories" is not proven either way.
