The only way to lose weight is to cut off food and decrease the calorie intake. Yes, that is what most of you believe in. If that is your case, you are probably not aware of all those foods with negative calories.
What does negative calorie balance mean?

Fruits recommended: apples, blackberries, cranberries, grapefruit, raspberry, lemon and lime
