Juice Apples To Help Your Weight Loss Efforts
Did you know that juicing apples could help your efforts at losing weight? Drinking apple juice and being active will burn extra calories to speed up your weight loss. Consuming the juice of apples also provides you with a number of health benefits that should result in you losing weight. While drinking apple juice alone will provide some benefits, to really lose the weight, your juicing should be combined with a healthy diet and vigorous exercise.
Apples are full of fiber, which helps the body feel full longer because it expands in your stomach, allowing you to eat less while still satisfying your hunger. Apples are also low in calories and fat. The antioxidants in apples may also help prevent a condition called metabolic syndrome, which is marked by excess belly fat or a body having an “apple shape.” Apples are also low in sodium. Reducing the amount of sodium in your diet helps prevent excess water retention, which results in additional water weight.
Apples can be used with other fruits and vegetables in a recipe to create a healthy juice with a pleasant taste. Juicing recipes that have spinach or kale as an ingredient typically have apples as an ingredient as well to offset the taste of the green leafy vegetables. While most grocery stores only offer a small selection of the most popular apple varieties, some apple orchards and farmer’s markets will have a wider variety of apples for sale. Each apple variety has a distinct taste and appearance that will add a different flavor to your juice.
