Are low calorie sports drinks acceptable, or is the sugar also vital to my recovery?

Healthy sugar is OK : There is increasing evidence that sweetened drinks can be detrimental to health, according to many nutritionists and physicians. The same applies to sweet and carbonated drinks, according to dentists. If a woman thinks she needs to replace fluids and electrolytes after intense exercise and/or sweating, she could have a low-calorie sports drink along with a piece of fruit or other healthful snack.

What are some low calorie foods that I can use as appetite suppressants?

High fiber foods: High fiber foods can make you feel full for longer; these include fruits like apples and oranges (not the juice), and whole grains.
Also soups are good. If you drink a glass of water before your meal, you will likely eat less.

What is the definition of a negative calorie diet?

Weight loss: A negative caloric diet is simply that you take in less calories than you burn. Your doctor or a nutritionist can help you determine your BMR (basal metabolic rate) which is the amount of calories you typically burn in a day. To lose weight you will either need to eat less calories than that, or exercise to burn more. It requires a negative balance of around 3500 kcal to burn a pound.

What is the minimum amount of calories I should consume per day to remain healthy?

Depends.: You need to get your resting metabolism rate checked to see what your rate is. This guideline of everyone eating 2000cal has caused tremendous problems. I check resting rates and most women are between 1100-1500calories and in the rest weight range! so customize this to get the right info.
