Calories and Considerations

A medium golden delicious apple contains 96 calories, 0 grams of fat, 23 grams of carbohydrates and 0 grams of protein. As an excellent source of vitamin C, apples also contain 4 grams of fiber that may help lower your cholesterol and maintain a healthy digestion. Try eating an apple with 1 tablespoon of nut butter for protein and good fats, or add an apple to your morning oatmeal to help keep you fuller longer.
