AN APPLE A DAY, KEEPS FAT AWAY

by Miss Bliss

Six years ago, I finally got the courage to go out and buy a scale. I hadn’t weighed myself since I got out of college, and was shocked to see I had gained 25 pounds. Weight can sneak up on you, especially when you’re working a miserable job with a cafeteria that sells greasy french fries and chocolate chip cookies for “snack”.Six months later, I lost the weight, got out of my horrible job, and began a much more blissful life. Dear reader, I know you are thinking, how did the Bliss Warrior lose the pounds?Apples. Studies have shown that if you eat one apple before your meal, you will eat 100 LESS calories than you normally would. Eating three apples a day, could save you 300 calories in one day without starving.How is this possible? Apples are high in fiber which makes your stomach feel fuller. Also, apples naturally supress the appetite because they release a chemical into the bloodstream that tells the mind the body isn’t hungry anymore.My favorite way to eat apples is to slice them very thinly, into apple chips, and squeeze lemon over the slices. By cutting the apple into tiny pieces, it takes longer to eat (another way to feel fuller faster), while the lemon makes a plain apple into a gourmet treat.Don’t sit around feeling fat and blue. Buy a big bag of apples and gain control of your tummy.
