The apple, red or green, is delicious providing excellent benefits to lose weight and lose weight. We discover its ideal properties in slimming diets.
The apple is a tremendously delicious fruit, which in addition to providing properties to our body and being essential in a healthy and balanced diet, also provides very interesting benefits for losing weight and losing weight.
As we already learned in our article dedicated to the benefits of apple for weight loss, from a nutritional point of view it is rich in fiber, which helps reduce constipation that is often so present in weight loss diets.
It contains malic acid, so that it helps to eliminate and mobilize those fats that accumulate in our body, and that therefore our body does not need.
It also stands out for its very low caloric and fat content, so that 100 grams of apples provide only 52 kilocalories, and only 0.4 grams of total fat.
The truth is that we cannot underestimate apple cider vinegar for weight loss either, since it does not contain calories, helps reduce appetite and accelerates the burning of fats.
How to use apple to enjoy its slimming benefits?
The truth is that apples stand out for being tremendously versatile fruits, so that in weight loss diets they can even be consumed alone – individually – or combined with other foods with slimming power or effect.
For example, well washed and eaten alone individually, the apple becomes an excellent remedy against constipation, since most of its fiber content is found in your skin.
It can also be combined with other fruits in a magnificent natural fruit cocktail, which as a dessert or snack will help to provide our body with the different essential nutrients it needs, while we do not choose to eat other more caloric products.
Of course, when combining fruits, we must take care of mixing sweet fruits with acidic ones, since although the combination can be delicious on the palate, it can be a real “bomb” for our stomach. Since the apple is a semi-acidic fruit, it is best to combine it with strawberries, plums, peaches, watermelons, medlars, pomegranates, papayas or pears.
It is also ideal in the form of juice or smoothies; although regarding this last option, if our goal is to lose weight, remember that it is best to substitute milk of animal origin for vegetable options, such as oat milk, rice milk or almond milk. On the other hand, you can also sweeten them with low-calorie options, such as stevia.
Properties of apple ideal for weight loss
The apple has a high water content (around 85% approximately), in addition to providing interesting amounts of carbohydrates, vitamins (among which we find vitamins of group B, A and C), as well as minerals (such as phosphorus, magnesium and potassium).
It is extremely rich in fiber, a quality that translates into being useful for reducing constipation, which, incidentally, tends to be so characteristic and common in most weight loss diets. In addition, it helps regulate the metabolism of our body in a totally natural and effective way.
But its qualities do not end here, since did you know that fiber provides satiety? It is ideal in fact to satisfy our hunger, which ultimately means that we will stay satisfied for longer when we eat apple.
Its caloric intake is tremendously low, as we saw at the beginning of this note, and it is also a fruit well tolerated by diabetics.
On the other hand, we must not forget the recommendation made by many doctors and specialists regarding apple consumption. According to different scientific studies, consuming two apples a day helps prevent cardiovascular diseases. And is that the old saying “an apple a day drives away the doctor.”
