The potato, which is familiar to everyone, has “overgrown” with a negative for those who seek to lose weight. Meanwhile, this is far from always the case, say nutritionists from Germany and publish in their special bulletin an article on the beneficial properties of potatoes.
It turns out that this product does not contribute to the deposition of fats in the human body, it is completely free of fiber and it needs only to be cooked correctly.
To cook properly is to avoid mashed potatoes with added butter, sour cream and other ingredients, do not fry potatoes in olive and sunflower oil, do not use potatoes as a side dish (fries, mashed potatoes) for meat and fish dishes.
Nutritionists advise you to cook potatoes in their skins and eat it also in a baked form. This vegetable is rich in potassium and starch, which positively affects the work of the heart muscle. Potatoes can even be eaten raw: not very tasty, but healthy, nutritionists assure. They do not recommend eating sprouted and soft potato tubers, which not only lose all their useful qualities, but can also concentrate the harmful substance - solanine.
