Eat This, Not That! Logo By Sarah Crow of Eat This, Not That! | Slide 2 of 41: An apple a day keeps the weight gain at bay. A medium-sized apple packs about 4.5 grams of filling fiber—that’s about 12 percent of men’s RDA—and may be an effective edible solution for fending off the uncomfortable gas and bloat that would otherwise keep you sidelined. Apple peels are loaded with pectin, a fiber that research published in Anaerobe reveals to be effective at boosting healthy gut bacteria, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria, which can help rev your metabolism. Red apples are also packed with quercetin, a phytochemical that can help reduce arthritis-related joint pain, and resveratrol, which is good for fighting belly fat.
