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!
