Firstly, as I say for every fruit, let’s stop fearing mangoes and start loving them instead!
WHY ARE MANGOES SUPER AMAZING FOR YOU?
Firstly, MANGOES DO NOT SPIKE YOUR SUGAR LEVELS if eaten in moderate quantities as they have a relatively low glycemic index.
Most importantly, mangoes lower cholesterol (especially LDL) due to their high levels of fibre and vitamin C content, which is amazing!
Also, they are high in vitamin A and just one cup of sliced mangoes can supply up to 25% of your bodies needed daily value of vitamin A, so it promotes good vision too!
Also, for a strong a healthy immune system, stop saying no to mangoes! The vitamin C and A along with the carotenoids, help boost immunity!
They also help prevent cancer, heart disease, improve digestion, the health of your hair and skin and promote weight loss too!
These are just a few and basic benefits that this amazing power fruit offers! So let’s enjoy mangoes this season, there are more than a 1000 varieties of this fruit, let’s eat the ones available to us guilt free!
HOW MANY CAN YOU EAT?
Depends on your body type and your weight loss/weight gain goal. But its safe to eat 1-2 mangoes a day on a weight loss journey too!
WHEN AND HOW SHOULD THEY BE CONSUMED?
For any food, there is a particular combination and time that it should be consumed at for maximum benefits.
Similarly, for mangoes, the best time to eat it is either in the mornings, as soon as you wake up or as a pre-workout snack!
Do not eat mango (or any other fruit for that matter) post a heavy meal (eg- lunch/dinner etc). Eat it as a whole meal in itself. I feel they’re best enjoyed as mid-meal options!
A QUICK TIP!
Always soak the mangoes in water for at least an hour before consumption to enjoy maximum benefits!
So from now on, enjoy this amazing fruit this season, guilt-free! Remember, it’s called the ‘King of fruits’ for a reason!
