Mangoes and Your Body
Unlike added sugars, such as high-fructose corn syrup and cane sugar that contribute to overeating, weight gain, poor nutrient intake and blood sugar imbalances in many Americans' diets, naturally-sweet mangoes might help you reach and maintain your weight goals. Because fruits are low in energy density, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, meaning they contain fewer calories-per-serving than denser foods, you can eat more volume while staying within your caloric needs. For example, one cup of mango provides 100 calories. A cup of standard low-fat frozen yogurt provides 400 calories. The rich fiber and water content of mangoes might also promote fullness. For best potential results, replace processed snack foods and sugary desserts with fresh or frozen, unsweetened mango routinely!
