Apples are the most popular fruit in the world. They are extremely health-giving and contain folic acid, pectin, soluble and insoluble fiber. They also contain potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and Vitamin C and A.
The Apple Diet requires eating red and yellow kinds of apples. Green apples tend to stimulate appetite and can hardly be appropriate food for dieting.
There are a few variants of the One-Day Apple Diet:
Apple Diet # 1
You should have 3.5 lbs of apples during a day. This amount of apples will make up for your daily body's need in liquid. Don't drink anything, even juices, tea or water.
Apple Diet # 2
You can eat only apples during a day. Eat them as much as you wish. Also have sedative teas, green tea or herbal drinks.
Apple Diet # 3
Apples and buttermilk/kefir variant. Combine having one apple with drinking half a glass of buttermilk/kefir 5-6 times a day. This is an effective cleansing variant.
