One of the most popular diets that have been made throughout recent times is the apple diet.
Its success is based on the speed with which its results can be observed, since whoever puts it into practice can expect an approximate loss of between 3 and 5 kilos in 5 days.
What is the apple diet?
This diet is low calorie, between 1000 and 1200 calories daily. An apple normally has 50-52 calories per 100 grams. It depends on the variety in question and its size, an apple contains between 80 and 120 calories.
Does the apple diet work in 5 days?
To know how the apple diet works we have to analyze the nutrients that make this fruit an ideal food for weight loss.
Apples are rich in vitamins and minerals, but especially in fiber which makes them a recommended food in many diets.
In addition, they have very few calories (between 80 and 100 depending on the size of the piece) so you can eat a good amount without damaging the balance.
The main element that makes apples a good food for weight loss is fiber, a natural laxative capable of joining fat molecules avoiding absorption.
These fats are dragged with food fiber and expelled from the body with feces, which also contributes to a cleaner digestive tract.
On the other hand, fiber makes you feel fuller for longer, that is, it has a satiating effect, so you will eat less and avoid those unhealthy pecking between meals.
