Apples are the favorite fruits in weight loss diets. Due to their great satiating power, they are irreplaceable when it comes to losing weight. But, do you know how many calories an apple has? Find out and calculate how many calories you add to your intake each time you eat one.

Are apples low in calories?

We will not deny it, the properties of the apple to lose weight are indisputable. They add to its satiating power, the fact of having few calories, a lot of fiber and a rich supply of antioxidants, so you could not ask for more.

Not surprisingly, there is practically no diet to lose weight quickly, which does not include it among its snacks. However, you should know that not all varieties of apple have exactly the same amount of calories.

What apples should you choose to lose weight?

Although it may seem incredible to you, the fluctuations between the apples that have the most calories and those that contribute the least, can vary by up to 50%.

Did you know that the sweetest apples can add almost 60 calories for every 100 grams of fruit you consume? So that's it! In contrast, the most acidic barely exceed 40 calories for the same weight.

In short, the red apple has more calories than the green apple and the apple with the skin, much less calories than without it. So you will already know which apple to choose if you want to lose weight. If it is green, sour, raw and with a shell, so much the better!

The latter is due to the fact that the whole apple, considered a food with negative calories , when consumed with the peel increases its fat-burning properties, that is, you will spend more calories in its digestion than those that it contributes with its intake.

What apples should you avoid if you are on a diet?

On the other hand, it is common for diets to use a special form of apple presentation in snacks: dehydrated apples. Be careful with the dried apple snacks!

While it is true that this food product concentrates the satiating power of apples, it is also true that it concentrates its calories. Keep in mind that it will provide you approximately 350 calories per 100 grams, so your portion of dried apples should not exceed 20 to 25 grams of the product, if you do not want to gain weight.

In short, an apple has an average of 50 calories per 100 grams and weighs between 150 and 250 grams, so every time you eat an apple, remember that you will add between 75 and 125 calories to your diet.
