Farewell, ravenous appetite – an apple will satisfy hunger and thirst
It’s the worst enemy of figure-conscious individuals: ravenous appetite attacks. Reaching for an apple at those times is not only good for the body, but also ensures that the next hunger attack won’t strike quite so soon again.
With barely 53 kilocalories per 100 grams, yet 85 grams of water and only 0.6 grams of fat, the apple is a true lightweight and the ideal snack. Thanks to its high water content it is, moreover, a great thirst quencher. And best of all: An apple helps stabilise the body’s blood sugar level, thereby curbing hunger pangs. And it is the best way to bridge the time until the next meal; light, low-calorie and low fat.
