The sheer number of diet plans available makes it extremely difficult to attempt dieting. But here is an age-old saying to trust that we believe will help you decide-
An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away!
The ultimate Apple diet plan in which the bulk meals include apples to help you lose those extra pounds. For Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, you eat Apples. If you like Apples, this diet might be your best chance at dieting.
The first question that arises when you think of an Apple diet is why Apples? There are more than enough reasons to choose this diet plan:
1) Reduces risk of multiple diseases
There’s ample evidence that the adequate Fiber that Apples carry helps control and improve our cholesterol levels, which significantly reduces the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and multiple heart diseases. Some studies show that the Fiber may even help protect from colon cancer and lessen the effects of acid reflux.
2) Satisfies a high percentage of daily nutrition
One medium-sized apple is made of around 86% water, making it a water-rich food. Apples, high in water, make you feel fuller longer, allowing you to eat less while still feeling satisfied. Apples may also help you lose weight by lowering blood sugar surges (which might leave you feeling hungry later).
3) Fight off free radicals
Additionally, Apples are also rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin 6, which fight free radicals, molecules that can cause damage to DNA and make us susceptible to heart diseases and cancer. Apples include antioxidant phytochemicals such as quercetin, catechins, and chlorogenic acid in addition to vitamin C. Apples’ antioxidant activity is higher than that of several other fruits, including grapes, strawberries, pears, and oranges.
4) Prevents Fat Absorption
Apple, an extremely nutritious food, is rich in minerals, vitamins, and fiber and has very low calories (around 95 in a medium-sized Apple). The apple’s Fiber binds to fat molecules and prevents fat absorption, and the fat bonded to Fiber is subsequently eliminated directly from the body. Furthermore, Apples keep you feeling full for a long period, eliminating the problem of Hunger and Overeating.
