Ever since you learned what a calorie is, you’ve been told that they are all alike: Whether you eat 500 calories’ worth of celery stalks or crème brûlée, your body will burn or store them equally. Right? Wrong. Science shows that when it comes to weight loss, calories are nowhere near alike.
Some foods take more work to eat—and therefore burn more calories while you’re digesting them. Just the act of chewing foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean cuts of meat can increase your calorie burn by up to 30%! And then your stomach and intestines do their jobs. In a Japanese study, researchers found that women who ate the foods that required the most work had significantly slimmer waistlines than those who ate the softest, easiest-to-eat foods. The fiber and protein in such foods take so much effort to digest that your body doesn’t absorb some of their calories.
Still other calories from sources you might never consider—that are so easy to add to your meals!—can give you an even bigger burn. Caffeine and other compounds in coffee, tea, and spices such as chiles, cinnamon, and ginger fire up your central nervous system and can boost your metabolism by as much as 12%.
Put these foods and drinks together and you get the Active Calorie Diet—a smart plan that takes advantage of all the new knowledge about calories. By choosing more Active Calories and fewer Couch Potato Calories, you’ll set your fat-burning engines on high all day long so you’ll lose more weight-without feeling hungry. When 15 women tried the diet, they lost up to 14 pounds and 4 inches off their waistlines in just 4 weeks!
