An Apple A Day Helps You Lose Weight.
Eating an apple a day can definitely help you see results on the scale. However, eating the apple in the traditional way only might bore you and you might want to skip eating the apple daily after few days and weeks.
Prepare these apple-enthused choices throughout your day and see how this fruit can help you shed pounds:
For breakfast, Oatmeal is always considered a great choice. Sweeten your oats with maple syrup. One eighth of a cup of maple syrup contains 100 calories.
Instead, pour on four times as much unsweetened applesauce. Half a cup of such applesauce contains 51 calories. Make this swap for a whole week of breakfasts.
In 7 days, you’ll not only save 343 calories in a week, but you’ll also gain 9.1 grams of filling fiber.
Apples are also excellent sources of hunger-satiating fiber. Feeling hungry before your next meal! Snack on 1 large apple (with the skin) for almost 120 calories. You’ll intake around 5.5 grams of fiber. This amount of fiber and high water content will keep you full until your next meal.
Thus preventing the temptation to reach for a high-calorie snack and curbing hunger.

Chocolate Mousse contains 355 calories
Pudding contains almost 288 calories
1 Brownie contains calories 243
1 Cupcake contains 177 calories

These are some of the calories counts that may help you in saying no to these desserts. Most of us really enjoy after-dinner or after-lunch dessert.
Indulging ourselves every night in high-calorie desserts can ruin our diet plan. So save calories and use natural sweet treats. Slice a small apple almost 80 calories, drizzle it with 1 tablespoon of honey around 64 calories, and sprinkle with cinnamon for a total of 144 calories.
For more decadent dessert, eradicate the core from a raw apple, stuff it with some raisins and walnuts, sprinkle a small amount of maple syrup, and shove it in the oven. Enjoy your low calorie yet delicious dessert.
