Eat more fruit to control your weight
Choose fruit with Low GI (Glycemic Index) and Low GL (Glycemic Load). Glycemic Index: GI is the numbers used to determine food based on how fast it is absorbed into human body and turned into sugar, comparing to Glucose which can be absorbed fastest (GI = 100), which means the food with high Glycemic Index (GI>70) will be quickly digested and absorbed into your vein, causing your body to generate a great amount of Insulin to control your blood sugar. When you normally eat food with high Glycemic Index, your body will need to generate more and more Insulin, resulting in Insulin Resistance that eventually leads to Diabetes in the future. However, Glycemic Index for each food can be vary, depending on its cooking methods and Glycemic Load (GL)
|Glycemic Index : GI||Fruit list|
|Guava, Apple, Dragon fruit, Strawberry, Orange, Asian Pair, Cultivated Banana|
|Raw Mango, Rambutan, Ripe Papaya, Cantaloupe|
|Ripe Cavendish Banana, Longan, Watermalon, Jackfruit, Lychee, Durian Pineapple, Date fruit, Tamarind|
Keep sweet bubble milk teas away for a while…If you want to control your weight properly.
A cup of sweet bubble milk tea provides over 450-500 kcal. It is consisted of 14-18 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of fat. Furthermore, its ingredients (such as milk powder and Casein) also contain Beta-Casomorphin, a substance that causes addiction. It will attach itself to Opioid receptors, which are responsible for analgesia, including controlling moods and motivation. Therefore, it’s undoubtedly that people are addicted to it.
The calories provided by a cup of sweet bubble milk tea are equal to 6-7 ladles of rice, or a dish of rice with stewed pork leg. It is also consisted of 14-18 teaspoons of sugar, which means it provides much more sugar than our daily need (approximately 6 teaspoons). Due to mentioned above reasons, water is considered to be the best and most beneficial drink during your diet controlling session.
