APPLES HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT



Apples manage your weight and improve your overall health;an apple does not have any fat or sodium. One component of an apple's peel (which also has most of the fiber) is something called ursolic acid, which was linked to a lower risk of obesity. That's because it boosts calorie burn and increases muscle and brown fat. Apples satisfy hunger for few calories so it's not surprising that they can be part of a healthy diet that promotes weight loss. Regardless of the type, apples are a perfect addition to your weight-loss plan for these reasons.

APPLES SPEED UP YOUR WEIGHT LOSS

High in Fiber

High fiber intake is a key to weight loss. Apples are also great sources of hunger-satiating fiber. They have about 5 grams of fiber each. Eating 3 apples a day will get you to 15 grams of fiber. That's half the amount you should have in a day. The fiber called pectin also takes our bodies longer to digest complex fiber than more simple materials like sugar or refined grains because it expands in your stomach so it takes less food to satisfy your hunger. The fiber also slows the absorption of the sugars in apples, so apples have a relatively minor effect on blood sugar. It also means that eating an apple satisfies hungry for a longer time. The feeling of being full can also stop you from overeating. Anything with at least five grams of fiber is a good source of thenutrient; most people should aim to get about 25 to 40 grams a day.

Low in Calories

Apples are low in calories (there are about 95 in a medium-sized piece of fruit) and fat, eating an apple before mealtime can lower your intake of calories during your dining and the amount is significant that consuming an apple before lunch can decrease your caloric ingestion at the meal by about 15%. The reason helps us control our weight is the wealth of fiber an apple provides keep you feeling full for longer without costing you a lot of calories. The apple crowds out the bad calories with good calories and less calories. This allows you to eat your favorite foods without starving and preventing the temptation to reach for a high-calorie nibble. 

Vitamins and Minerals

The Vitamins (most of the vitamin C and vitamin A are in the skin, B-complex vitamins these vitamins are key in maintaining red blood cells and the nervous system in good health) and Minerals (such as calcium, potassium, and phosphorus) benefit you by increasing health and vitality. Of course, being active helps burn extra calories to speed up weight loss.

Low in Sodium

Apples are a low-sodium food that can be a good addition to a healthy diet. Keeping your sodium low will help prevent excess water weight and retention. They also help to detoxify the body by flushing out excess water from the body.

Aid in Digestion

There are even enzymes found in apples that might help your body digest food more efficiently. The fiber in the apples helps improve the efficiency in your digestive tract. Your system will basically clear out all the foods you eat quicker, while retaining more of their useful nutrients. So you get the left over bad stuff from these foods out of your body faster so they don't have a chance to rot and ferment in your intestines which leads to many problems. Scientists have recently shown that important health benefits of apples may stem from their impact on bacterial balance in our digestive tract.

An Ideal Snack

A fresh apple is an ideal snack. Apples are tasty and are considered one of the healthiest snacks available. You can do this in 2 ways or a combination of both. The two ways are to either eat an apple before each meal and or eat an apple between meals as a snack. Snack on one large apple (with the skin) for 116 calories, and you'll consume 5.4 grams of fiber. An apple before breakfast can help your digestive system function correctly. An apple two hours after breakfast can serve as a light snack and can prevent you from feeling hungry if you wish to lose weight. Breakfast and lunch are meant to be the largest meals of the day, and eating an apple before these meals as a light snack can help you control your weight. Dinner should be the smallest meal of the day and by eating apples and other fruits at dinner, you can control your calorie intake. This makes them an excellent candidate for a snack.

How to Eat Apple

The recent studies have shown that three apples a day can also help you lose weight. The effectiveness of three apples a day at mealtimes breaks the weight loss plateau even when your diet and lifestyle wasn’t changed. The study showed that those who curbed their appetite with an apple before lunch ingested 185 calories less during the meal. That alone could lead to shedding 1.5 pounds per month and 20 pounds per year. If you nosh on an apple before dinner, as well, the gains could potentially double. So if you're up for losing weight the boring way, you can expect to lose 2 or more pounds of fat within a month if you eat just 3 apples a day. The high water content and amazing amount of fiber will keep you full until your next meal, curbing hunger, and preventing the temptation to reach for a high-calorie nibble. Eat 3 apples a day. That's it. You can do this in 2 ways or a combination of both. The two ways are to either eat an apple before each meal and or eat an apple between meals as a snack. 

Apple Juice for Weight Loss

Apple juice can assist you with your weight loss goals. Drinking apple juice a few times a day in place of consuming a beverage that is high in sugar is a healthy choice when you are on a diet.  Due to the low number of calories in apple juice, the calorie count will change. On average, the suggested serving size of one cup has approximately 116 calories. The low amount of calories in apple juice makes it a healthy alternative to sodas or popular sports drinks. Apple juice has a low amount of sodium in it, which will help flush excess water from your body. This will help you get rid of excess water weight. Drinking apple juice can also be a great option before exercising. Apple Juice alone is not enough to help you maintain a stable diet. Drinking too much apple juice has also been known to cause upset stomach, so you need to make sure to not drink apple juice excessively throughout the day. Alongside drinking 1-2 glasses of apple juice every day, you should also make sure to consume at least eight glasses of water.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Weight Loss

Apple cider vinegar (in either pill or liquid form) is an effective weight loss supplement when integrated into a nutritious diet and healthy lifestyle. The vinegar works by suppressing the appetite. This is because it contains organic acids and enzymes. These increase the metabolism rate, which is nothing but the speed at which body burns fat. It also reduces water retention and makes you feel refreshed. Vinegar lowers the rise of blood sugar. This means that our body produces less insulin. There's ample medical evidence to suggest that lower insulin levels encourage weight loss.
You don't need to drink too much of apple cider vinegar to get weight loss benefits. Just mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to glass (16 ounces) of water and drink three times a day, ideally before each meal for 2-3 months. If you don't like the taste, you can add a bit of honey to it. Apple cider vinegar is a natural product. Research shows that it results in weight loss but it is gradual. But the good news is the effect is permanent. If you were looking for immediate weight loss, this may not be for you. The results are slow but steady. As per available research, it takes about one year to lose 10 to 15 pounds (about 6 to 9 kilos). The results will vary. Some people have lost two pounds a month.
