Researchers from the Universities of Coventry and Warwick placed Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped presenter Matt Tebbutt in a metabolic ‘calorie chamber’, which measured every calorie burned while he was fed celery over a 12-hour period.
He was fed 326 grams of raw celery and a celery smoothie, both worth 53 calories.
The results showed he burned 72 calories while eating the solid celery and 112 calories drinking the liquidised celery.
Surely there’s more to it than this.
How many calories were the expecting him to use over 12 hours to begin with? More than 106?
