I know someone who criticized another person for eating alot of apples...(like more then half a bag a day), saying that all that sugar made him gain weight. Personally, i think it was all the meat and dairy, but i am a little biased lol <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
He's lost weight recently, but I'm just not convinvced that it has anything to do with apples... i always thought they were good for you, so eat as much as you want?<br><br><br><br>
any thoughts?

<span style="color:#008000;">I'd be inclined to agree with you- it's probably moreso the meat and dairy than the apples.<br><br><br><br>
I would think that 1/2 a bag of apples a day might have some uncomfortable effects upon one's bowels, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

Apples, depending on their size and type, can be between 80-160 calories each.... so you don't really want to eat as many as you like.<br><br>
Moderation is the key for all foods.<br><br>
A better choice for something to be able to eat mindlessly like that would be carrots or celery.

No, apples won't make you fat.<br><br>
Christ this sounds like something on the health section of Yahoo! Answers from a 13-year-old<br><br><br><br>
If anything, apples will help you LOSE weight<br><br><br><br>

Too bad I'm prohibited by VB's posting rules from saying what you sound like.<br><br><br><br>

eating a large amount of ANYTHING will make you fat.<br><br>
I don't know how large this half a bag was or anything, but calories = weight gain, even if the calories come from 'healthy foods'. So it depends how much other food he was eating.<br><br>
did he give up the apples to lose this weight? did he make any other changes to his diet?<br><br><br><br>
didn't he get sick of apples?!

<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> not if you're eating a lot of them. Fruit can significantly affect your blood sugar levels, your insulin production, your caloric intake... While apples won't make you fat alone, consuming too many calories will. So I'm not sure why you think that apples will help you lose weight unless you're choosing between eating an apple and eating something more calorie-dense.
