The old Apple
There is a lot of controversy around this topic these days. Fruits are well known for its benefits on health and weight loss, but the trend of smoothies seems to take over the old apple you would eat on your way to the car.
However smoothies might not be the best option if you wish to lose weight, Despite all Hollywood stars having one for breakfast every morning.
The sugar crave is real and it needs to be addressed. Although you might complain that your cravings are making hard for you to stick to a healthy lifestyle, the truth is that cravings is the means for you body to let you know it's lacking some sort of nutrients. Instead of having the cookie or the milk chocolate, it would be recommended to have fruits, which contain natural occurring sugar. The old apple would put your crave to rest, provide your body with the necessary nutrients and help with your weight loss. Sounds perfect to me :)
Say yes to fruits!
The fructose found in the fruits is not harmful to the human body. The quantity you might eat on a daily basis cannot have negative effects. Fruits contain water, fibre and chewable resistance. Thus it takes a while to be digested and the feeling of fulfilling would last longer.
100 grams of the old apple provides 52 kcal and 10 grams of sugar. 100 frames of snickers… Which is found in every vending machine is 488 kcal and 47 grams of sugar. That’s insane! Please have the old Apple when in need to reduce sugar craving!
Fruits contain minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
Fruit and vegetables are a vital source of vitamins and minerals and should make up just over a third of the food we eat each day. It's advised that we eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day.
There's evidence that people who eat at least five portions a day have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
Fruits high in antioxidants include plums, raisins, blackberries, strawberries, orange , mango and the list goes on.
