Eat Mushrooms for Healthy Weight Loss (flamingfeta@flickr)

Mushrooms are an excellent source of Potassium. A 3-ounce portabella mushroom cap provides more potassium than banana or an orange. Then, mushrooms are low on sodium and fat. Indians are prone to hypertension and heart disease, so eating mushrooms will help you lower your risk.

Not only that, mushrooms can help you lose weight- Mushrooms contain 80%-90% water weight, so they are filling and low in calories. Also, they have low carbohydrate content, so its great for those on a low carb diet. In a study published in the journal Appetite, subjects ate a variety of typically meaty dishes or with mushrooms for one week each. They downed 420 fewer calories on average at each mushroom meal (and they found the meals equally tasty).

Besides this, mushrooms are a great source of Vitamin B and Selenium- which works with Vitamin E to protect skin damage.

If you’re not sure how to cook mushrooms, here is the world’s Simplest Mushroom Recipe: Lightly saute them with olive oil and onions. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remember you saw it on Fitho first :)

Lastly, mushroom is a vegetable, so all you vegetarians, eat your mushrooms and stay healthy!
