The benefits of potatoes
The potato is the fourth most widely grown foodstuff in the world, and is found in many cuisines and crops. It is an easy-to-prepare, very nutritious food that appeals to young and old alike. Its moderate glycemic index promotes the sensation of satiety and avoids yielding to cravings.
This starch is rich in potassium, vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6 as well as magnesium, zinc and manganese among others. It therefore provides a necessary energy supply, keeps the intestines healthy and helps to fight stress.
The potato is ideal under this diet because, being filling, it reduces daily calorie rations and ensures an appetite suppressant effect due to its high carbohydrate content.
It is not a calorie food because it contains only 79 calories per hundred grams. It all depends on how it is cooked, just banish frying and promote cooking with water, steam and oven.
This diet is intended for people wishing to refine their silhouette in a short time and who are ready to consume a lot of starchy foods, including the potato.
Despite its effectiveness and rapid effects, this diet should not be followed for more than seven consecutive days because being little varied and low in calories, it can lead to deficiencies. It is not recommended for people with overweight or obesity because it is not advisable to follow it over the long term.
