Hi, I'm Stella Metsovas. And today we're going to talk about what type of apple contains the fewest carbs. Lets face it we've become an everything carb obsessed culture. In fact, one of the most common binges I've seen during all my years in private practice were those clients who went on the Atkins, carb-free, Paleo like Monday through Thursday diet. Then went on a typical I can eat anything I want because I had no carbs for three days and then they binge. So for the sake of our segment today I will discuss apples that contain the fewest carbs. But no, that doesn't mean I actually feel one apple over another is better based on variety. They become better as far as nutrients are concerned if they are harvested appropriately. Meaning they aren't picked before their maturation. So before they're ripe. Okay so the rule of thumb, the size of the apple is what matters most. Ever been to the supermarket and found a gigantic apple as opposed to the smaller, cuter varieties? You want the smaller apple because it will contain fewer carbs just based on size alone. Know, one medium apple contains about 21 grams of carbohydrates. And the glycemic index for apples averages between 28 to 44 with an average of 38. Jonagold are known to have one the lowest glycemic indexes of apples. If you don't have access to Jonagold try granny smith green apples. Remember the smaller apple is always the best.
