These types of foods are known as Negative Calorie foods. The
idea of Negative Calorie foods is still heavily debated among
nutritionists and weightloss experts. The following is a brief list

Answer- It depends whether or not you're adding something caloric to your food! If you fry it, yes. Oil/shortening contains calories. Eating food+oil contains more calories than the food alone. If you boil it in water, no. water has no calories. Heating the food in an oven or microwave will not add any calories. It is important to remember that food preparation certainly can change the nutritional values of a foodstuff. When you start adding…
An "empty calories" is a simple and loose description of a food / drink that contains calories that have no nutritional value. There are many of these.

Yes. Most people believe that you lose calories in chewing, but it's actually the digestion process that burns calories. It is properly called a negative food.

In theory, and food eaten that contains more calories than it requires to eat, will make you over weight if you eat to much of it.

Most of us like to check the nutrition label of food or drinks before buying them, to determine the fat content. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determines how information is to be presented on these labels. Many people will opt for 'light' or 'fat-free' food, believing that it contains less fat. The FDA directs that food can be given a 'light' label if it contains a reduced amount of a particular constituent, such as…
Avocado is a very low-calorie food. A 1 tbsp., or approximately 14 g, serving of the average commercially available avocado contains just 2 calories, according to the UDSA Nutrient Data Laboratory. This includes both California and Florida varieties. When comparing whole fruits, however, the Florida variety has fewer calories by weight because it contains more water than the California variety.
Kinda-sorta, but it's not really the alcohol as such that does it. The biggest reason behind weight gain is people not managing their calorie budget.

Calories are only a measure of how much energy you can get from a nutrient or a food source. The more calories you get, the more energy you can burn. However if you burn less calories of what you ingest, you get stored fat. Calories are how we measure energy from foods for our body. When we get more calories than we burn, we store the extra in fat cells. This is how we gain…
