All About Potatoes During Weight Loss

All About Potatoes During Weight Loss
Starch is a polysaccharide, and polysaccharides are complex carbohydrates. Therefore, to attribute potatoes to simple carbohydrates is fundamentally wrong. Potatoes are one of the leaders in potassium content. For example, more than 500 mg of potassium per 100 grams of root vegetables. In addition, there are many other minerals in the potato! And by the way, there are about 20 grams of carbohydrates in 100 grams of potatoes. 

And, for example, in peeled rice -  3 times more
Potatoes are indicated in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, as the dietary fibers contained in it do not irritate the mucous. Potatoes are also included in the dietary tables for joint diseases, blood vessels, and metabolic disorders. It is not clear where people get the information that potatoes do not belong to the right food! You refuse it flatly, but you eat fruit without restrictions, without even thinking that they will give you a much greater weight gain than potatoes!

Of course, like any other food, potatoes need to be eaten in moderation and on time! If you lose your weight, then 1-2 times a week you can afford this vegetable at lunch. If your weight is normal and you are active, you can eat it at least every day.

It is important to cook the potatoes properly. In order to keep the vitamins and minerals safe, prepare it in the peel, i.e. "in the uniform". But frying on oil or other fat spoils a valuable root vegetable, adding unnecessary calories. Fried potatoes are a real blow to your figure.

And another little digression for reflection
If your health allows you to move, why do not you start moving more to lose weight instead of putting yourself on a hungry ration? I constantly see this craving in people to minimize nutrition because of laziness. Understand one simple thing: the less you eat, the less your body gets the essential vitamins and minerals. Hence the problems and the inevitable failure. And vitamins from jars do not always cover the lack of vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, their digestibility in different organisms is different and sometimes it is zero. Keep that in mind. But about it another time. Health to you, delicious lunches and beauty, dear friends!
