What the hell is so hard about eating an apple?

I usually eat one raw fruit/veg a day (sometimes two) just cause. Today I had an apple already and I'll either have an orange or a banana when I go home for lunch.

Not tough, people. Plan your budget and your menu ahead of time.

Wait, so replacing processed crap with real food helps you lose weight?

Just a little tip for you: it's a lot easier to sound condescendingly smarter when what you say has anything at all to do with the topic at hand...

Is there any chart out there (the article should have linked one) that says which apples have different levels of this ?

Actually losing weight requires a complete lifestyle change. But keep pushing that paper MSNBC.


I guess if maybe you weight 500lbs and change out a twinkee for a apple, you might get down to 475lbs..

Anyone know how much the mice were getting? Was it something like the normal "a human would have to consume 20 liters of red wine to get the positive health effect from xyz compound" or is it just an apple a day?

FTA: "Recently, people have started to think that brown fat is more similar to muscle than to white fat"

I knew there was a reason pale big women didn't look as good as "brown" big women.

I'd agree, but HoneyCrisp is the best, whereas one needs to eat two Galas.

Probably easier if you actually like apples. I'm not a big fan of them myself. Then again, that's probably due to years of eating nothing but junk food... :(

I can be starving for a snack, see fruit I like... and completely discount it's existence because I wish I had some doritos or something. I kind of hate that...

Multiple studies have shown that a pound of muscle only burns something like 6 more calories a day than fat. Do your research, Mr. Researcher.

No. Just reveals your like of something from West Virginia, which is something you should try to avoid obviously. Because, ewwww.

But Galas are descended from Golden Delicious so I guess that makes me kinda ewwww too.

Brown fat is fat that has a lot of blood vessels in it. It's hardly new information.

Well, how many calories does fat burn a day? I'm going to venture a guess that it is equal to or slightly more than 0.

There was actually a bbc news article about that today. Apparently he almost never finished his apple before bed, and they suspected that he was actually poisoned by cyanide fumes generated when he was messing around with KCN trying to electroplate things with gold.

Welcome to last year MSNBC.

And, yes, you can just buy the ursolic acid as a supplement.
