Mango the king of fruits 
Mango season is here and you can easily spot this luscious-looking fruit on almost every street corner. 

However a common concerned about mango by many of my clients is that by eating mango they will gain weight. So read on to know more.......

Mango known as the king of fruits is not called king just like that it is a complete fruit by itself….giving soluble fibre, lots vitamin A , vitamin C. They are fat-free, cholesterol free and salt-free 

Here are a few benefits of mango
•Mango fruit is rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber

•Mango fruit is an excellent source of Vitamin-A and flavonoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin.

•Fresh mango is a very rich source of potassium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

•It is also a very good source of vitamin-C which helps body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen free radicals.

Mango and weight gain
Mango when eaten correctly, especially the timmings can benefit you in many ways. Do not eat mango with your main meals like lunch n dinner.For example, if you incorporate mangoes as part of the calories you need each day like as fillers in between, you will not gain weight. But if you eat all your meals and additionally stuff mangoes, then you will definately gain weight

Also remember, anything in excess is harmful. Eating too much of this fruit can generate a lot of heat in the body leading to skin break-outs. Moderate amount of mangoes in a day – maybe 1 or 2 – can supply the above mentioned  nutritional benefits.

MANGO IS A 'SUPERFRUIT' TO FIGHT SUGAR CRAVINGS Mangoes are high in natural sugar so they do not affect your sugar level like other (added) sugar-rich food. The sweetness of mango helps in curbing the cravings for other sweet stuff like pastries, cookies, chocolates etc. Mangoes are high in fibre so you feel fuller in fewer calories.

Get creative: add it to your milk, yoghurt or freeze the aamras in and enjoy the mango lollies.Top it with vanilla ice-cream or mix it in your salad.

Just go ahead ENJOY the benefits of this king of fruits....
