Actually, you should look into what's called 'zero calorie foods'. Basically, there are certain foods that the body can't really process correctly, so it takes more caloric energy to digest them than is contained in the food itself.
beets, broccoli, green cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, hot chili peppers, cucumbers, dandelions, garden cress, garlic, green beans, zucchini, cranberries, grapefruit, oranges, strawberries, tangerine,lettuce, onions, papayas, radishes, spinach, turnips
All of those are considered zero calorie.
Also, if you're into salads, try any of the Walden Farms salad dressings. They're a bit pricey, but for zero calorie, they are more than worth it. Whip up a big salad, throw on some of that dressing and it's all zero cal.
One of the above responders was correct about dieting. If your body doesn't get a minimum of 800-1000 calories per day with adequate amounts of protein, it will go into starvation mode and hold onto every single calorie you take in. My suggestion, use low cal foods to supplement what should already be a good diet mix of protein and carbs (yes, the body needs carbs). Throw in a bit of exercise, and the weight will come off.
