The Healthy Miracle Superfood: Sweet Potato
Written By: Michael Morelli
We all want to eat healthy and make sure we stay looking our very best, but that doesn’t mean we have to waste all this time counting calories and trying to figure out what or how much we should be eating. Like so many others, you don’t have time to spend the better portion of your day trying to figure out how much or even what, you should be eating. You have much more important matters to attend to. The truth is, nutrition doesn’t have to be difficult, and there are ways to easily save time and still know what to eat and how much.
Why Fad Diets Don’t Work
Now, there are plenty of diets out there that try to simplify healthy eating and even promise to help you lose weight, but that doesn’t mean they work. Sure, some of them may work while you are on them, and you may actually lose weight, but what happens afterward? Most of the time, once you have completed the diet, you end up gaining the weight right back. In fact, most people find themselves in a vicious cycle of jumping from one fad diet to the next trying to get the weight they gain back off. Not to mention we hardly stop to ask if these diets are healthy to begin with. Weight loss does not always equal health.
The reason these diets often fail is that they fail to teach us better eating habits. They fail to teach us how to continue to eat to keep the weight off once the diet is finished.
While these trendy diets fail time and time again to help us stay healthy and keep excess weight off, there is one thing that many of them succeed in doing, and that is they teach us that we need to count every calorie that we consume. This, in the long run, is more detrimental to our health than the weight we put back on. Why is that? It’s because they teach us that is is all about how many calories you eat, rather than what you eat.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. It isn’t about subscribing to all the diet versions of foods that line the store shelves, trying to persuade us that they are actually good for us.
The truth is, to eat healthy you just need to focus on whole foods. This means to consume foods that are real and as close to nature as you can get them. Not the frozen dinners you find in the freezer aisle.
The Miracle Superfood
If there is one food that stands out above all else, it is the sweet potato. Yes, the orange goodness that we associate with Thanksgiving rather than health or weight loss. This food is starting to be recognized for its incredible health benefits. For example, they are high in fiber and vitamins and minerals. They can also help protect you against cancer, metabolic disease, and inflammation.
Besides having all these benefits, the sweet potato is fantastic for weight loss. One reason is that the fiber that is found in them, which can help us stay fuller longer, so we consume less, unnecessary calories.
