Default Catabolic Foods, real or myth?

I remember a while ago Matt wrote a blog and had some of his diet in it,
he mentioned something called catabolic foods.

I was curious and began looking up / learning about them,
and it seemed to make sense.

Lately I have seen a few articles online saying there is no such thing as a catabolic food.

Anybody have a definitive source for this???
Or???

The theory is yes, but in practical application, not really. The real truth is that some foods, such as those containing high amount of fiber, take more time for the body to break down, thus, the body burns more calories trying to digest those foods than foods which are simpler to break down, such as whey protein or table sugar. It's not really "negative" calories, that is a false statement.
