Why do apples do this?

After I eat an apple I feel like I'm starving.
If I was only a little big hungry and just wanted a snack, after I eat an apple I'm much hungrier than before.
Does this happen to anyone else? Why does this happen?

apples are a simple carb....fructose....and spike your insulin levels, which then dips your blood sugar and triggers the hunger response. 

Have some nut butter or cheese with the apple to add protein to keep the blood sugar dips from happening.

Thank you!
I thought something was wrong with me.

My stomache growls and I feel like I haven't eaten in days.

I'm glad (but not surprised!) that Rhonda had the answer for you... This is a good reminder for me to do the same when I send apples with my son as a school snack, actually.

I would have never known that!  Interesting

Me too.
I wouldn't have thought about it, it doesn't make ds hungry.
Good info!
