Benefits of apples:
- Aid digestion– Apples are full of fiber and therefore control your weight, by keeping you full longer, solving diarrhea, bloating or gas problems. They also avert hemorrhoids and ease constipation, which is in fact the main reason why hemorrhoids are caused in the first place.
- Decrease your risk of diabetes– Apples control your blood sugar and therefore women who eat an apple a day have 28 % less chance to develop type 2 diabetes.
- Reduce cholesterol levels and detox your liver– Apples attach to the fat in your body, reduce the cholesterol levels because they are rich in fiber and therefore ease the function of the liver, by making it easier for it to detox your body.
- Boost your immune system– The antioxidant called quercetin, Vitamin A, C, E, K, B-complex and flavonoids in the apples fortify the immune system.
The Apple Diet
This detox involves 3 phrases:
- The actual detox phase
- After detox phase
For the first 2 days you should prepare your body for the actual detox, in order not to experience any shocks or damage to your system. Therefore, start by eating: green salads, smoothies, fruits, vegetables, lean protein (fish, chicken, quinoa and eggs) and whole grains (beans, rice, etc.)
In the second challenging phase, which is the actual detox phase, your body would be already prepared for the detox from the first phase, so even though it may seem hard to limit yourself to one type of fruit, you won’t have any cravings and it would be easy because of the previous preparation.
For three days you should only eat apples. The number of apples doesn’t matter, however most of the people would eat from 10 to 12 apples a day. In this phase you should also drink a lot of water and unsweetened tea to flush out all the toxins.
This last phase which also lasts 2 days is quite important, because it provides a gentle shift, before turning back to your regular eating habits. You can eat fruits, vegetable soups, juices and salads in this phase.
3 steps that will guarantee you a successful apple diet:
- Be determined- Make yourself and also the people around you aware that for 7 days you will be on this detox which will require some changes in your week schedule. Pick up a week when you do not have meetings or gatherings which may ruin your diet. You should also bear in mind that extreme exercise should be avoided during the week and maybe replaced by yoga. Be focused!
- Reward yourself after the diet- This doesn’t mean that after 7 days you should run to the closest cake factory and gain all the pounds back, but rather choose a non-food reward. Pick up a dress or a pair of jeans which will make you happy and will look good on you after the diet.
- Make your best friend diet with you- Dieting with your friend will be an extra motivation to endure and make an effort together.
