Negative Calorie Foods?

I am reading a website on negative calorie foods, where the body uses more energy to digest and absorb the foods than the foods themselves contain. Is this a useful tool or should I only be focusing on the fiber content of the food?

I thought negative calorie foods were a myth. I used to think celery was a neg. calorie food and ate it like crazy, then I heard that wasn't true.

Negative calorie foods are real, the misconception is the foods do have calories just by the time your body breaks them down to digest them you have actually burned more calories than you have consumed.

perhaps this is just coincidence, but

If I'm hungry and eat an apple, I feel hungrier afterwards!

Consider the Glycemic index.

Along with these foods you need to consider the gylcemic index -- which requires the body to release more insulin and cortisol --- requiring it to hold onto fat. For example apples are fine, but beets are almost a 100.

All the other stuff is fine though.

Dried fruits will not work, only fresh.
