Eating apples can really keep the doctor away, and make you thinner at the same time.

An estimated 36 million Americans are affected by metabolic syndrome, a combination of health problems linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. According to food consumption data, adults who eat apples, or apple products have smaller waistlines, less abdominal fat, lower blood pressure, and a reduced risk for developing metabolic syndrome.

And if you can't eat apples...try dancing to the Osmonds to drop a few. Hey, then all stayed pretty slim!
