Another Reason to Love Apples: Calorie Intake Decrease

We all know the old adage – An apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Well, I thought the saying was celebrating the fruit's fiber since apples contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. However, the reasons to love apples just keep growing, and we may also love them because they can help keep our waist lines from growing.

A new study indicates that eating an apple 15 minutes prior to eating a meal can decrease your overall caloric consumption, by 190 fewer calories. That amount is nothing to scoff at. These latest results add to similar findings about the benefits of starting meals with low calorie, filling foods.

Here are some apple stats for you to chew on:

  • 70 - 80 calories
  • 3 grams of fiber
  • No fat or cholesterol
  • About 10% of daily vitamin C needs

So we might just need to alter the saying to – An apple a day keeps the calories at bay.
