Celery is low in calories, requires a lot of noshing, and has so much fiber and water that it takes a lot of work to get it through the body. Because chewing stimulates the release of digestive enzymes, the act in itself raises your metabolic rate, or how fast and efficiently your body can absorb, store and eliminate. This is the beauty of the “thermal effect” of food; or the amount of calories burned from digesting and eliminating the things you eat.
Comment: I've never been a very big celery fan but maybe I could become one. Especially if it does all this.
