Physical Properties of the Drink

You want to wear hot bikinis, but do not know how to lose those extra pounds?! You do not need to worry, because we have a solution. It’s apples! Yes, yes apples, that is correct! Following our apple diet plan, you can lose up to 3 pounds in 5 days!

Why apples? Apples aid weight loss, fight cancer, reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, prevent gallstone formation, boost immunity, and prevent the development of cataract. This is a very useful fruit that will help you lose weight, and also improve your overall health.

If you decide to stick to an apple diet, the bulk of your meals will include apples. You will have to eat apples for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And yes, as a treat, you will also eat apples. Well, what do you think? We believe that if you like apples, this diet will not be too heavy for you.

How does this diet work? Apples are rich in minerals, vitamins, fiber, and also have very few calories (80-100 calories depending on the size of the fruit). The fiber in the apple binds to the fat molecules, preventing fat absorption. The fiber bound fat is then directly excreted from the body. In addition, apples make you feel fuller for a long time. No hunger and overeating!
