No cal no problem

I've been trying to make a list of food or drinks that are really good to keep in the house.  Foods/Beverages that are either 0 cals or NO cals.  I'd prefer no calories, but that is almost next to impossible. 

No Calorie/0 Calorie food and beverages that I have come up with:

-Diet sodas or coke zero
-Green tea (unsweetned)
-0 cal drink mix
-Most fresh veggies: broccoli, carrots, cucumber, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, celery, peppers, radish, asparagus, califlauer,  etc
-Also, for salads the dressing sprays.  Only 3 calories per spray since it is difficult to eat a salad with no dressing.
-Fruits...STAY AWAY FROM BANANAS! Granted they have tons of potassium, but they have over 100 calories in 1 banana and tons of sugar. 
-Mushrooms (also have the texture of meat when cooked)
-Canned Tuna
-Soy sauce
-Laughing cow cheese triangles (Only 45 calories per triangle)
-Non-fat plain yogurt
-Balsamic vinegar

I'm going to keep adding to my list as we go along. If anyone knows of anything else that would be good for this list let me know! 


  1. You forgot the most used beverage: Coffee. Has little or no cals if unsweetened,curbs appetite, and wakes you up :D

    Watermelon is awesome. Has so little calories,that you could binge on it. It has a lot of sugar though,but the good one.

    1. Thanks! I added that into my list. I made a new page for it.

  2. and citrus fruits are great, they're like 40 calories for half a grapefruit or 35 for a clementine or tangerine. they're known as negative calorie foods because it takes more energy to consume and digest them than there are in the food. isn't that neat?

    also on the negative list are cabbage, celery, cucumbers, and most very watery fruits and vegetables.
