The Truth About Metabolism Boosters

Can apples keep weight at bay?

You know the old saying: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” But could an apple a day also keep the extra weight away and prevent childhood obesity? While apples have long been celebrated as a metabolism-boosting food, many wonder if this title is a deserved one. A recent study examined apples and diet quality and weight in children. The study found that children who consumed apples had a higher diet quality and lower risk of obesity. Apples are already a low-calorie, healthy addition to any diet. So if you’re looking to drop a few pounds, consider swapping that bag of chips for an apple as your midday snack.
