Foodie Tough Love

by Anne Bennett on September 29, 2010

“Which weighs more, a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?”

The answer to that old war-horse of a brain teaser?  They weigh the same, of course.

But ask the follow-up question, “Which would you rather have fall on your toe?”, and the game changes, doesn’t it? ¬†They may weigh the same, but in other respects they are very different.

So it goes with food. A 100-Calorie pack of Oreos and a large apple may have the same number of calories, but your digestive tract treats them differently.

Listen up for some foodie tough love. If you’re at the office and it’s 3 PM and you’re really hungry, an apple will quell your hunger pangs a lot better, and longer, than a handful (and a small one at that ) of mini-Oreos. Why? One really simple reason: the apple has way more fiber.

But you knew that already, didn’t you? That’s the thing about tough love: it hurts, but like the apple, it’s good for you.

It is really remarkable the way calorie consumption around a apple company tend to be more reaping benefits for compared to calorie consumption within a strong egg cell or perhaps unhealthy calories in the banana, Still subway fat laden calories genuinely find a way to help to make the particular variation with our energy counter-top.
