SNACK BE­FORE YOU EAT

Women's Health (South Africa) - - BEST BODY -

One a day could keep hunger away. In a study by Rolls, when par­tic­i­pants ate AP­PLE seg­ments be­fore lunch, they con­sumed 15 per­cent fewer kilo­joules (in­clud­ing the ap­ple) than with­out. It would be easy to at­tribute this to the fi­bre hit, but Rolls sug­gests that the size to kilo­joule ra­tio of an ap­ple and the time it takes to chew through one could also play a part. So pick one up about half an hour be­fore lunch. You might not feel the need to reach for sec­onds.
