Apple can keep down your calorie

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

The next diet craze may be the apple diet. A new study shows an apple a day keeps the calories at bay. People who ate an apple about 15 minutes before lunch consumed almost 190 fewer calories than when they didn't have the apple.

They had 59 normal-weight men and women come to the lab for five weeks to eat breakfast and lunch. Before lunch, the participants were given either nothing, 1½ medium peeled, cut-up apples (about 125 calories), or a similar caloric amount of applesauce, apple juice with added fiber or apple juice without fiber. About 15 minutes later, participants were served an entree of cheese tortellini and tomato sauce.

Participants who had the raw apple consumed 187 fewer calories than at the meals when they had applesauce, juice or nothing.

How come? You should continue back the diet. Prevention is still better than cure...
