Weight loss: You'll be SHOCKED by how much weight you could lose by eating an APPLE

WEIGHT LOSS doesn't have to be all about hitting the gym and eating just chicken and rice - in fact eating an apple before your meal could help to slash your calorie intake significantly.

University of Iowa did a study that revealed animals given ursolic acid supplements increased their muscle mass and energy expenditure - in layman's terms, calorie burning.

A similar study performed on people shows that women who added three small apples to their diet per day lost in excess of two pounds more than those who didn't in just over two months.

Scientists believe the miracle apples work by increasing levels of hunger-suppressing hormone GLP-1

Researchers from St Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Canada, said eating three-quarters of a cup - the equivalent of 130 grams - each day of these foods known as pulses led to a weight loss of 0.34 kilograms.

The research builds on previous work by the hospital’s Clinical Nutrition and Risk Factor Modification Centre, that a daily serving of pulses can significantly reduce bad cholesterol.

Cholesterol is waxy substance produced mainly in the liver, although most body cells can make it when necessary.

It is vital for health as it is used to make hormones, vitamin D, bile acids and cell membranes but there are two main types of cholesterol - good HDL cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol.

Good HDL-cholesterol removes LDL-cholesterol from the circulation and transports it back to the liver for processing.

But bad cholesterol has been linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease such as heart attack and stroke.
