Mango has a sweet, enveloping taste, similar to that of peach but with even more characteristic acidulous and exotic note. Why add it regularly to your diet? Perhaps because it is the perfect fruit to lose weight? Let’s find out together.
Mango is one of the juiciest fruits of summer: sweet and refreshing, we give you one more reason to love it and add it to your diet!
Studies conducted by the University of Queensland have shown that mango is also one of the slimming foods. In particular, its peel could prevent the formation of fat by blocking the formation of those cells responsible for the accumulation of fat. It is therefore impossible for mangoes to be excluded from your weight loss diet, although you will have to make the effort to chew the bites a little longer because of the somewhat harsh peel. But this little extra effort does a lot of legwork.
Sweet, colorful and juicy: it is ripe to the point when it is soft to the touch and its skin is not deformed.
It has a high concentration of properties and healthy substances: carotenoids, vitamins A, C, E, iron and phosphorus, and gives off a heady and inviting scent. Its particular flavor makes it suitable to be consumed both naturally, for breakfast, as a meal or snack, but also in cooking, salads or in combination with white meat or fish. Hydration, freshness and taste in a single fruit, also ideal for weight loss.
Does mango really make you lose weight? Researchers at the University of Queensland focused on studying the ability of mango peel to burn fat and thus promote weight loss. The study has shown that, above all the external part of the fruit, is able to prevent the formation of fat cells, counteracting the phenomenon of adipogenesis, ie the process that underlies the development of fat cells in the body.
Several research papers presented at the 2016 Experimental Biology Conference in San Diego, confirm mango’s ability to contribute to weight loss. Its beneficial properties typical of a superfruit, make it the ideal fruit to fight fat and obesity.
So research also confirms that eating mango regularly is one of the most natural and healthy ways to lose weight, thanks to its low amount of calories (100 calories for a whole fruit) you can satisfy your appetite and taste.
