Whole Food Plant-based Diet Weight Loss Foods – How Apples Support Losing Weight
February 21, 2020
Have you been wondering if a plant-based diet can help you lose weight? Well, considering that a whole food, plant-based diet is full of fiber and there are plenty of foods that are low in calories, you can bet that going natural with plant-based foods is going to contribute greatly to weight loss. And, apples are one of the best fruits to include in a plant based diet. According to healthline.com, apples have been found to support weight loss in several research studies. Starting with the basics, apples are low in calories, high in fiber which makes them very filling and okay to eat on any sensible weight loss plan.
Also, apples elevate your blood glucose sugar levels in a safe, gentle manner and keeps those levels up longer than most foods. The practical effect of this is to leave you feeling satisfied longer.
When it comes to fiber, apples are one of the richest sources of soluble fiber in the supermarket. Dr. James Anderson of the University of Kentucky’s School of Medicine says that this type of fiber prevents hunger pangs by guarding against dangerous swings or drops in your blood sugar level.
