Unjustly slandered: Dispelling the three myths about the dangers of potatoes


Once there was a potato. Normal, in general, the root, and then everyone knew - that it is not a root vegetable, and downright monster!

We learned and were amazed: and we ate something, and nothing! Many thanks to the potato-only and survive - and for centuries! Because it was almost the basis of the diet.

Now, wherever you look, it gets in the eyes or fitonyashka advocate a healthy lifestyle, which says: fuuu, potato! It's harmful.

Rehabilitate the unfortunate?

It is said that by potatoes fattening.

I'll tell you a secret - from everything you can to get fat if consumed without measure. I had a girl friend of his youth, as she sat on a diet - you can eat as many eggs and oranges. She was very happy - and lose weight will not be hungry! A month later I was hysterical - the scales showed 3 kg. It, however, proved to be a stubborn girl and two months sat on this diet. Three dialed kilogram dropped - but only because, like oranges eggs have not climbed. Then the hospital rattled - had a gastritis, and for six months in the pureed soup and other things even thinner.

The potato is actually not so high in calories: 100 grams of potatoes calorie - 73 calories. Of these: protein - 1.9 grams, grease - 0.1 grams, carbohydrate - 16.6 grams.

I know now say - yeah, there's only carbohydrate calories, so get fat! In fact, the starch is destroyed and during storage, and during the heat treatment. So if a potato is not the kilos - that's okay. Especially because carbohydrates are the body also needed.

They say there is nothing useful in potato

In fact, in potato useful weight - catch while on the plate did not scatter!

The tubers typically: about 76% water, 18% starch 0.5-1% sugars, 2% protein and 1% of mineral salts and vitamins (B1, B2, B3 (PP), B6), C, K, E. The potato protein and potatoes as part of the free amino acids contains all the amino acids found in plants, including irreplaceable: lysine, methionine, threonine, tryptophan, valine, phenylalanine, leucine, isoleucine. Yet there is a potassium salt and a phosphorus, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron, sulfur, chlorine, zinc, bromine, silicon, copper, boron, manganese, iodine, cobalt and so on.

Say, a potato is harmful to the stomach

Well, I beg you - for the stomach healthy is certainly not harmful. A harmful for the patient not only the potato (depending on what the stomach is ill).

In fact, a lot of fiber in potatoes, and it is useful for the gastrointestinal tract. Especially for people suffering from ulcer, gastritis, gout and kidney disease. Here diabetics it has not advised, but they do a lot of things are not advised.

You see, things are not so bad, in fact, if you make a menu reasonable, there is nothing wrong with the potato. So unfairly slandered rehabilitate and... bon appetit!
