EAT MANGOES, STAY HEALTHY

Summer and mangoes seems inseparable. This healthy fruit, rich in vitamin A, is too tempting to resist. At the same time,mangoes are quite high in calories. For instance a medium sized ripe mango contains around 300 calories. While indulging in juicy mangoes this season, dieticians suggest we keep certain points in mind.
Its ok to eat a mango daily. Cut down on other sweets so that the calories in-take remains balanced. Mangoes are not only rich in vitamin A, (good for eyes and skin), they are also a source of anti-oxidants because of their orange colour. Mangoes are high in fibre too. Again, fresh green mango panna is re-hydrating, while a glass of milk shake can remove fatigue quickly.

One or two mangoes a day is fine and rather beneficial. If you workout everyday there is no need to worry about the calorie intake. Still,if you are too finicky, half-an-hour of brisk walking will be enough to burn the calories you consume. However, diabetics shouldn't eat more than a slice or two as mangoes have high sugar content.

I love mangoes; in fact I bought two yesterday and I'm waiting for them to ripen. I didn't know they had so many calories but, what the heck, I'll just use the treadmill for an extra 30 minutes!

I do agree with you but I try to minimise my intake of mangoes due to the high sugar content. Could you tell me which variety is the best in Hyderabad.

I bought Himayat on Saturday and I must say that the fruit is aromatic and sumptuous.
