“Eating Apples Make Me Hungrier.”

This is a super random subject for a real estate blog but apparently is a thing for folks that have jobs where eating on the fly is the norm.

My kids and I love apples and they are easy to consume in the car. If we are running a little late for school, we can count on an apple as a good way to get a respectable breakfast in the tank while on the move. That said, I have heard from no less than five people, “Apples make me hungrier.” Each time someone says this to me I think, “Yes! Why is that? It’s the weirdest thing!” Everyone that says this to me never has an answer, but they are as intrigued as I am.

Turns out, an apple is the same as it has been all these years, but our 2019 human bodies (chemically) are not the same, and therefore the apple is not the same (to us). The answer is, because of the sugar that is in an apple, the 2019 American’s body wants and expects more to come.

Am I insinuating apples are not good for us? Nope. I just wondered why folks become hungrier after eating one.

Anyway, I thought it was pretty interesting. Check out one person’s take on it below.

Now you know!

Thank you!

“Blood glucose swings due to insulin response, i.e. from sugar peak rush and immediate satisfaction to sugar low crash and addictive craving for more:

  • You are not hungry in the nutritional sense – you are an addict needing another hit of sugar.

Yes, really.

An apple today is not what an apple once was, due to human consumerism and the unconscionable way modern commerce gets away with addicting people to sugar (and other cheap substitutes for real food) to sustain profits and increase margins.

As proof of your commercial apple today not being an apple of your grandparent’s day, we simply compare average common cultivars enhanced for sweetness to other non-nutritional choices, such as this:

No added sugar in the apple!

Yes, you are eating three grams MORE of SUGAR with each apple than you would consume with a KitKat candy bar… but those inconvenient details don’t need to be pointed out in our marketing campaign.

Try eating a KitKat candy bar for breakfast instead and see if you have a little less rapid craving for more KitKat bars than you normally do after eating an apple.

Handling your nutritional guilt and public shaming by doing this type experiment is another matter entirely…”
