    Mango is one of the most famous fruit across the globe which is eaten with great liking by almost age groups. With more than 2000 varieties available, mangoes are grown in almost every part of the world but Indians have a special taste for them as we name it “King of fruits”.

    Overeating is not advised –

    The fruit itself is tempting enough due to its bright color and juicy, sugary pulp and now the benefits and nutrition is adding to the temptation. I would like you to hold on to that temptation as I am not done yet !!! Being a nutritionist it is my responsibility to make you aware of the adverse effects of overeating mangoes. Be careful there!!!

    • Mangoes are rich in calories as mangoes are high in carbs as well.

    • Overeating mangoes can add some more kilos to your weights.

    • It can also cause Diarrhea if eaten excessively.

    • Overeating can also increase your blood sugar level.

    For Diabetics and weight watchers–

    Don’t get confused. Let me explain. As I have mentioned earlier that mango (Ripe mangoes) are a good source of carbs. Carbohydrates actually contributes the most (as high as 20 per) to its calorie count. All you need to do is to manage the calories by substituting other carbs from your meals.

    The correct way to add this in your diet would be to combine the fruit with even low Glycemic foods such as pulses, vegetables, nuts, seeds etc.

    Since the Glycemic load of the fruits is low in comparison of potatoes and bananas so mangoes are actually safe to eat and would not affect your blood sugar level or weight if you could balance the calories and carbs.
