Most popular New Year’s Resolution…to lose weight! If this is on your list, you might try the Three Apples a Day Routine:


Three Apple Diet Basics

The foundation of the 3-Apple-a-Day Plan involves eating an apple before each main meal. The idea is that the fiber in apples makes you feel full and the sweetness satisfies cravings.

In addition to eating apples dieters follow a food plan that is very similar to the South Beach Diet with a relatively low intake of carbohydrates and reduction of saturated fats. Refined sugars are to be eliminated while low glycemic index carbohydrates are emphasized.

Dieters are advised to consume 4-5 small meals daily, which should be based on healthy foods that are low in fat. Each meal or snack should also contain a source of lean protein because this has been shown to reduce appetite and improve weight loss.

In addition to eating three apples a day dieters are advised to include six servings of other fruits and vegetables. This will allow you to reduce your intake of calories without experiencing hunger.

    A good picture dear Gena. But three apples on one day are too much. The fruit sugar is not good for us. ;)
