How Special Is The Apple?

How Special Is The Apple?

Last week we talked about how the high soluble fiber could benefit your mood. Apple is one of the best choices that we can find in the grocery store. So we are going to talk more about apples today. We will cover the most popular questions, includes what makes it so special, what kind of apple is great to eat, and how much should we eat per day?

What Makes Apples So Special?

The specific nutrition content of any apple varies from species to species. Generally, however, apples contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, great complex carbohydrates, and they’re a very good source of fiber. Every apple (100 grams) contains about 4 grams of this nutrient.

The vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A and potassium in apples give your body the nutrition it craves to stay in good working order, and the carbohydrates bring you much-needed energy. In particular, though, the fiber in an apple gives it an uncanny ability to help heal the body.

Many of the chronic diseases that we have today revolve around inflammation, whether that is inflammation to the heart (heart disease), inflammation to the arteries, or inflammation to the lungs. Eating a balanced diet that is filled with fiber can be a great way to keep your body in check, limiting inflammation and helping your body to naturally heal.

What's The Best Apple to Eat?

You’ll most likely see many different kinds of apples at your local grocery store. Maybe you’ve tried a couple of different kinds and noticed that you couldn't find one that tastes great and had a wide spectrum of health benefits.

Try Fuji and Pink Lady - these are both tasty, hybrid apples that contain a very nice crunch. More importantly, they’re a great source of fiber and carbohydrates.

How Many Apples Should I Eat?

The age-old proverb says that an apple a day keeps the doctor away - which implies that one apple can help to keep you fit and healthy. But, most dietitians and nutritionists agree that 4-5 servings of fruit and vegetables are essential for health and longevity.

Balancing your diet with more fruit - especially apples - can help to strengthen your health by providing complex carbohydrates with a great source of fiber and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.

If you follow our Do You Bake social media, you must notice that we’ve been sharing a lot of health information, trying to share and discuss as much as possible about the healthy life and happiness.

We have talked about overeating. There are three things that we would like to simply mention again. Firstly, after overeating, don’t feel guilty. This is easy to say, hard to do, but just try to keep it in mind that feeling guilty won’t help. Secondly, don’t skip a meal but eat healthy food instead and do portion control. Last, drink more water and keep the regular exercise as usual.

So is there any way that can prevent us from overeating? Yes, and it is not a pharmaceutical appetite suppressant. I guess you avoid that because of the possible many serious side effects? If so, you’ll be glad to discover that there are certain foods and spices that can help you lose weight by naturally suppressing your desire to overeat.

Cayenne pepper

Research shows that cayenne pepper and similar strong spices may suppress appetites and help weight loss.

One study found that using cayenne pepper can actually make you eat fewer calories. The chemicals in cayenne pepper may help boost the metabolism and make you feel less hungry. They may also help burn fat in the body.

Cayenne pepper can be added to your meals as you cook. It can be sprinkled on salads and added to soups. It can top almost any dish in moderation.


Apples are an inexpensive and convenient way to suppress appetite. The fiber and pectin in apples can make you feel full, so you’re less likely to stray from your diet and overeat. Plus, you can enjoy these other appetite-suppressing characteristics of apples:

  1. Apples taste sweet without an enormous amount of calories, so they can feed the craving for sugar without resorting to eating a box of doughnuts.

  2. Apples take more time to chew than other foods. This gives your body the time to process what you’re eating and send signals to your brain that you’re full faster. Apples have also been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels in the body.

  3. The multiple varieties of apples also keep things interesting, and you’re less likely to get bored if you eat different types.

So, the next time you’re wondering what to eat, grab an apple as your snake from the kitchen!

Enjoy these natural appetite suppressants as your diet. Keep in mind that exercise and a generally healthy overall eating plan are also important for losing weight.
