Oops! Looks like we are stupified with the benefits that dates render. Now let’s see the reason why dates are going to be your bestie in your weight loss journey.
Keeps those pangs of hunger at bay
Dates are high in fibre and a good source of protein, so they keep you fuller for longer and help your metabolism. Dates contain protein, which aids in the maintenance of lean muscle mass, and a high volume of dietary fibre, which keeps hunger at bay. Okay! Not entirely, but perhaps to a greater extent.
An excellent protein source
When attempting to lose weight, it is necessary to consume a sufficient amount of protein, which dates provide. Proteins can aid in the development and healing of muscles.
High levels of unsaturated fatty acid
Not all fats are unhealthy. Dates, for example, contain unsaturated fatty acids. These unsaturated fatty acids can aid in the reduction of inflammation. Inflammation can occur as a result of a variety of factors, including injury, swelling, disease, improper food consumption, and adopting a sedentary lifestyle. The bad news is that inflammation has been associated with obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, liver disease, and other diseases. As dates contain a high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids, eating them can help to reduce inflammation, lessening your chances of gaining weight.
Sugar rush? Savour on dates
Dates are naturally sweet, so you may satisfy your hunger and sweet desires while being healthy. Date syrup can be used in place of white/brown sugar and artificial sweeteners. Dates, which are strong in fibre and protein, also contain antioxidants that can help prevent heart disease and cancer.
Rich in Anti-oxidants that help in weight loss
Antioxidants aid in the scavenging of damaging free oxygen radicals as well as the reduction of stress and inflammation. Anthocyanins, phenolics, and carotenoids are antioxidants found in fresh dates. These aid in the removal of pollutants as well as the stimulation of metabolism and digestion. This eventually leads to weight reduction.
Last but not least…
Dates which are mostly grown in tropical climates, are immunity-boosting foods that can help you lose weight without reducing your sugar intake. But keep in mind that "too much of anything is useless." Consuming it in moderation is required. Consume 4 to 5 dates each day; too much of anything can lead to weight gain.
