We’ve all hear the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and you should know it’s not just a saying because apples are one of the healthies fruits. They promote digestion and are rich in a number of nutrients which boost the immune system, prevent fat build up in the liver and protect you from cancer.
They are rich in vitamins A, B and C and organic acids such as apple, citric, formic and carbonic. They also contain pectin, which is a very important nutrient when it comes to weight loss. The pectin in apples influences calorie reduction and undermines the negative effect from carbohydrates. It’s also essential for the preservation of the intestinal flora. According to research, 25gr. of pectin boosts a daily weight loss of 0.3kg.
Having all these facts in mind, we’ve designed a special apple-based diet which will stimulate amazing weight loss in just one week. The diet plan is pretty simple, you need to remember to eliminate sugar and salt and drink plenty of mineral water, green tea and other herbal teas.
