Our expert says:
Apples contain 59 cal or 237 kJ per 100g, so weigh how much the 5 apples weigh and calculate how many extra kJ you are ingesting when you eat them. If you are trying to lose weight and are female then you require 6300 kJ per day to lose weight. Eating 5 apples a day will not cause weight gain unless this makes you push your energy intake over your requirement.
