Can you eat too many apples?

I love apples and this is the season - yay! Will it hurt me if I have an apple with breakfast, as a snack between lunch and dinner, then again after dinner, every day?

not as long as it is within your calorie needs

make sure you are eating other fruits and veggies and taking a multi to get an array of your nutritional needs

I've heard eating too many apples can make you gassy. I eat a lot of apples and I've never had this problem...but you've been warned!

actually, you can. I remember watching a show called "X Weighted" about people trying to lose weight. This women used to drive an hour to work and on the way she would eat about 6 apples thinking it was healthy, but the personal trainer said that those apples still contribute to your caloric intake for the day.

The bottom line is, you should count your apples calories and just keep it within your calories for the day. It should be fine as long as it's within your limit for the day.

I would agree with counting the calories and making sure you get the proper nutrition from other foods and a multi vit. But there is an issue with blood sugar too. If you have any problems in that area the natural sugars in the apple can cause you to raise and then drop in which case I would suggest having a small amount of protien with it too.
Otherwise I can't imagine that there would be a problem.

And I agree the apples are excellent this year.

Here is the thing about apples, they are full of fiber, so eating 3-4 a day will help you stay full for a long time. They are also easy and tasty to eat.

I do not think personal trainers should ever give dietary advise unless they have a RD after their name.
I think your diet is such a personal thing what works for the OP and what would work for someone else is different, I eat about 2200 calories a day, and most people would tell me that is two much, but my RMR is 2600 and I am droping weight because I eat and workout the way that works for me.

I think I'd have a belly ache if I ate that many apples a day. I already eat a lot of vegetables and some fruit so if I added that many apples, I'd be in the bathroom a lot! Sorry for the TMI...

OP here. I eat LOTS of fruits & veggies every day. I was a vegan for 10 years, then an ovo-lacto vegetarian for 5 years, now I'm mostly veg with just a bit of poultry & fish on occasion. Actually, I eat about 5 servings of fruit and 7 or 8 of vegetables every day. Sometimes more. So 3 apples a day shouldn't cause me any tummy trouble. I just wondered if it would throw things off to have 3 of the same fruit instead of 3 different fruits. For all that I know about eating fruits & vegetables, I really have a hard time applying it to myself.

Yes!

You can eat too many apples. I ate a dozen apples once when I was a kid and it made me horribly sick. I don't know why I ate so many, but threw up apple pie.

I love how everyone on here is giving these extreme situations where apples make people sick and/or fat. Who the hell is going to eat a dozen apples? Or even six on a drive to work? Besides those two people, of course. That's completely absurd.

I eat small organic apples. I live in Michigan, so they're easy and cheap to come across. One small apple has like 70 calories in it. Medium to large are around 100. It's not going to knock you off the wagon to eat three apples a day. In fact, good for you for eating actual apples and not apple pie or danishes or any other bastardization of the in season apple.

I also agree with the poster that mentioned eating an array of fruits and veggies, and maybe taking a multi. Apples are great, but not all-inclusive nutritionally.

i love granny smiths, which are none too sweet. i agree with those who advocate for diversity in the foods we eat. still, i have read that eating a small apple as a start to a meal is beneficial. heh, i keep meaning to try it.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Not sure what ten apples might do...

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
