    I think that most of those foods have an energy component in the form of carbohydrates that exceeds the energy required to chew and digest them.

    I might be prepared to accept that celery or cucumber are energy neutral, but the other foods? Nope, I don't buy it

    Sure. If you think about the texture, taste, etc then celery and cucumber is in fact almost all water!
