The Incredible Apple

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away." ~ adage

In my quest to lower my cholesterol and lose weight, I discovered that apples are nearly the perfect food in helping in doing both.   A medium apple is 95 calories, provides 1 servings of fruit, and has 4.4 grams of fiber.   To put this in context, a per day recommendation of  2000 calories includes 5 servings of fruit and vegetables and 25-30 grams of fiber. 

It seems that apples are good to include in any diet.  To start, I'm going to try to eat apples at least three times a week and gradually increase to at least once a day.
