I haven't really heard of this; an apple is around 40 on the GI which would put it in the low range. I know with high GI CHOs like dextrose it's possible to experience hypoglycemia; which we all know low blood sugar can cause an increase in hunger.

I've heard of this before and it's really interesting... odd... but still interesting. And it's always apples?? Yea...wtf?!

I don't think its from blood sugar/insulin unless you've had hypoglycemic-like conditions before - becoming light headed, dizzy, intense hunger, etc.; after a short energy release or insulin spike after eating. Eating one apple and causing a hunger hormone to fire would be a pretty intense reaction. That's like feeling the floor shake if you drop your keys.

The hunger hormone is one of those that I call a "stupid hormone" because it's simply a set of functions telling our brain to "eat.. because you need something." But it doesn't give any hints as to what that "something" is.

The Leptin hormone monitors our nutritional status, and the Ghrelin hormone tells us we’re hungry. These work together to balance our states of hunger and satiety. As a complex a marvel as the human body is, you'd think it would say "eat a banana" when the body is low in potassium, for example. After all, the body 'learns' and adapts in lots of other ways - except in the cases of hunger. Then it just plays dumb.

So why apples??

I don't know. But clearly something has yin without the yang, borrowing from the Chinese concept of equilibrium.

But if anyone knows the answer to this, id be very interested in knowing. I find stuff like this really fascinating. (i know... i need a life! lol)

basically its to do with the sugars and citric acids in the apple... think of all those lovely fat burners people suggest. apple cider vinegar.. citrus extract.. apple skins... thats the reason for the hunger.. acid
