Celery has been shown to promote weight loss, although this does come with a caveat. You may have heard the myth that celery has a negative-calorie intake because you burn more calories chewing it than you actually consume. Sadly, this isn't true, but that doesn't mean that celery isn't a good weight loss food. A cup of celery has about 15 calories compared to nearly five grams of fiber, so it will make you feel full without actually using up much of your daily caloric intake. This means it's a great food to fill up on when you get an afternoon craving and are considering snacking on chips instead.
