Why Do Apples Make Me Hungry

You Asked: Apples Make Me Hungry

You're asking and I'm answering
Hey Fit,
I like apples as much as the next person, but every time I eat one I get really, really hungry. I know they are good for me and that "an apple a day will keep the doctor away." But why, oh why, do they make me so hungry.

Great question. I too love apples, and I too find myself hungry after eating one. The reason apples don't keep you full, and sometimes make you hungrier, is that they are 95 percent carbohydrates and carbs do not keep you full. Do not give up on apples as a snack though. Just pair the apple with a piece of cheese or slice the apple and spread some peanut butter on the pieces. Cheese and peanut butter add protein and fat to the apple making it a well-balanced snack that should keep you full, because it is protein that keeps you full.

I am curious if this happens to you? Tell me in the comments section below.
