Often, online magazines write about food without calories. It is usually claimed that while the foods in question contain calories, digestion and chewing would require so much energy that they are ultimately calorie-free. Sometimes even negative calories are written.

But this claim is unfortunately wrong!

There are many low calorie foods, but none that contain zero or even negative calories. That would be nice, but unfortunately the scientific data prove the opposite.
