They say an apple a day will keep the doctor away, but apparently three will keep the fat away. Just eat an apple prior to each meal The foundation of the 3-Apple-a-Day Plan involves eating an apple before each main meal. The idea is that the fiber in apples makes you feel full and the sweetness satisfies cravings. Then follow a low carb eating plan In addition to eating apples dieters follow a food plan that is very similar to the South Beach Diet with a relatively low intake of carbohydrates and reduction of saturated fats. Refined sugars are to be eliminated while low glycemic index carbohydrates are emphasized. Eat 4 to 5 times a day Dieters are advised to consume 4-5 small meals daily, which should be based on healthy foods that are low in fat. Each meal or snack should also contain a source of lean protein because this has been shown to reduce appetite and improve weight loss. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables In addition to eating three apples a day dieters are advised to include six servings of other fruits and vegetables. This will allow you to reduce your intake of calories without experiencing hunger. Recommended Foods Apples, low fat cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, eggs, chicken breast, turkey, lean beef, salmon, oatmeal, brown rice, broccoli, lettuce. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast Apple Cheese omelet 1 cup cooked oatmeal Morning Snack ½ cup cottage cheese ½ cup nonfat yogurt Lunch Apple Grilled chicken breast 2 cups steamed broccoli ½ cup brown rice Afternoon Snack Cappuccino shake Dinner Apple Grilled salmon Green salad
