Sweet potatoes aren’t only for Thanksgiving! Good thing too because these orange yummies can help you shed those extra pounds.
Find out the three reasons why sweet potatoes could be your weight loss savior.
They can regulate your blood sugar. Sweet potatoes can have about 33 grams of carbs but also contain a compound that increases levels of adiponectin, the blood-sugar regulating hormone, in the body. With regulated blood sugar levels, your body has a better chance getting rid of those sugary cravings you get when your levels dip. Eat up!
They are a good source of fiber. What’s a great way to control your hunger? Fiber, of course. It helps you feel fuller for longer, and one medium sweet potato can contains four grams of the nutrient. Fool proof!
They can satisfy your sweet tooth. Sweet potatoes are a good alternative for a healthy, lower-calorie treat. These babies contain no refined sugar, so they are perfect for curbing your sweet cravings.
