It's a well-known fact that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But did you
know that eating an apple before every meal can have even more health benefits? Apples are packed with fiber and antioxidants, which can help regulate digestion and promote gut health.
In addition, apples can help you feel fuller longer, making them a great way to avoid overeating at mealtime.
Another big benefit is in your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). In short this is the amount of calories you burn at rest. You can calculate it here on our site. Apples have a ton of pectin in them. When pectin hits your digestive track it turn into a gel like thickener, making digestion use more energy.
Eating a couple apples a day has been shown to raise your BMR enough to make a real impact on your energy usage AKA Burning more daily calories.. literally while you rest!
Last but not least.. lets go back to the fiber content. The fiber in apples acts as a natural pro-biotic. Feeding your friendly flora will help keep you fuller longer!
Increased fiber consumption is linked to increased satiation (Feeling full) for up to 24 hours!!!!
Who knows if it will keep the doctor away for sure. But with a slimmer waistline and a full feeling.. it can only help!
