An Apple A Day...

There may be something to this old saying after all. I have heard more and more about the health benefits of eating at least one apple a day. It's fiber rich and good for you and filling and delicious. It can be a great addition to a weight loss plan. Now this is all music to my ears because I happen to love apples, particularly a good crunchy Granny Smith apples, and I try to make sure I drink plenty of water and eat at least one apple each day. I'm not faithful every single day, nor about exercising, and so I can't say that I've seen tremendous results yet, but I have faith in this approach. Has anyone tried to make sure they have an apple a day, and how has it impacted your health/diet?

An apple a day would be a great thing to start with! We have apples all year round here, and even though I haven't noticed any major health benefits yet an apple sure gets my apetite going before dinner. :D

I find, when I'm faithful about eating an apple in the morning that it kind of stabilizes my appetite and keeps me from going for junk food quite as readily.

An apple a day might keep the doctor away ...but we do not have apples throughout the year . Ours is not an apple growing region and we depend on other eastern states for our requirements . Hence the alternative would be keeping the doctor away by other means. LOL.

Funny... I'm sure we depend on other regions for most if not all of our apples here too (South Alabama), but I continue buying and enjoying them! But it is not my sole "keep the doctor away" strategy either!
