If it takes more energy to digest an Apple Pie, doesn't that make it slimming?

Yes, I heard that before, so the total daily intake of water you should have would include all water absorbed from the foods you eat.
However, on that note, coffee is a diuretic, so it will actually cause fluid loss.

Will someone please tell me why apples are good for you, but if you put em in an apple pie they suddenly become bad for you? I know some will say that it's not the apples, it's the sugar and the fat in the crust. But why does this take away the nutritional value of the apples in the pie????
Any fruit or vegetable , upon being exposed to high heat ( above 100 C ) , creates a membrane around it's enzymes (sp?) which your body has to work 3 times harder to peel off , so to speak .
In other words , if you ate that apple without cooking , you would of have all the nutrition in an apple without having your body expand 3 times the energy to peel off the membrane around the enzymes within an apple .
Cooking the apple results : your body , spending 3 times more energy to get to the goodies within an uncooked apple .

I was a coffee FREAK when I was working. Mtn Dew and Coffee.. kept me half awake on doubles and weird floating hours. Then my Dr told me I had to cut it all out. You talk about the worst headaches of my life! Now.. yrs later.. I consume coffee reasonably maybe a cup or 2 and not an entire 12 cup carafe in a few hr period. MAYBE once a month or so a treat for me is to go get an espresso or flavored coffee ( raspberry mocha.. yumm!).
I do know this, if I get a headache out of the blue now, a cup of black coffee will knock the headache out.
