If you read this post you will see that a way to weight loss in Mediterranean Diet is following a plan that includes apples. Fruits are known to be an important source of energy and health and lately, the American Cancer Society has declared that “Eating lots of fruits and vegetables can help reduce your cancer risk”. The Institution recommends eating at least five servings of fruit every day.
This is the reason why Tammi Flynn wrote his book “3-apple-a-day plan” recommending to eat an apple before every important meal. This will do not you any harm providing that you follow a balanced diet according with your caloric needs. Of course, the apple will reduce your appetite if you can control your crave. It is a non very caloric fruit, 65 Kcal. in 125 grams (1 cup), has fiber and you can take away in your bag or pocket.
Moreover, the apples are full of pectin, a soluble fiber that in practice drags cholesterol out of your body (in a not so simple process) and prevents cancer.
You must not confuse the apple diet with the “apple diet patch”, a patch that sells a company supposedly “to lose weight” using an apple patch stuck to your skin. It is ridiculous only to think that this method might work. Furthermore, when you land to their page, they try to turn you an active seller of the patches, “privilege” for which you have to pay 29,95 US $. This is why some people think it could be a scam, but this is a question only that should be determined by the courts.
