While no food can guarantee weight loss, here are several reason’s why apples have the potential to be great for weight loss.
The reason why apples are so great for weight loss is that they are very filling, yet they have very few calories. Eating one or two apples can fill you up, and a medium apple contains only about 95 calories.
Apple’s potential to be great for weight loss is not just theoretical. There are many studies that show a link between apples and various contents found in apples and weight loss.

-This study show fiber, which, as been mentioned before, is a content found in apples, is great for weight loss.
Apples have the potential to be great for weight loss because they can fill you up at very little calorie expense. There are studies that show a link between apple consumption and weight loss.
How Are Apples Able To Be So Filling Yet Be So Low In Calories?
There are several reaons why apples are able to be so filling and yet low in calories. In this sections we will list the reasons.
High Water Content
One of the main reasons apples are so filling but are yet so low in calories is because of their water content. Water, as you may already know, has no calories, and water is very filling. Therefore, foods with a huge water concentration tend to be few to be low in calories and filling. Or have the same profile. Apples are made up of percent water.
(They’re many studies that back up the notion that consuming water is good for weight loss)
High Fiber Content
As you may already no calories are units of energy.
It’s hard for the body to break down fiber and extract energy. Fiber passes through the body largely intact, so fiber has virtually no calories and fiber is filling when it’s in your system. Therefore foods that have fiber contents tend to be very filling and lower in calories and great for weight loss.
Contents That Do Have Calories Are Found In Small Amounts
Not all apple contents have no or virtually no calories like apple’s fiber and water content. Apples also have sugar, which has contents. But these contents that have calories are found in very small amounts, quantities, or grams.
Not A Sure Thing
Earlier it was explained that apples are very filling and low calories making them great for weight loss.
Now although apples are a weight loss-friendly food, that doesn’t guarantee if you eat apples, you’re going to weight loss because weight loss doesn’t come down to if you’re eating one food or not. It comes down to the combined calorie intake of all the foods you eat. If the calorie intake of the foods you eat is less than what your body burns, then you will experience weight loss.
