SAYURAN INI JUSTRU BIKIN ANDA GEMUKVEGETABLES THAT MAKE YOU FAT

Sayuran merupakan makanan yang pasti dipilih oleh sedang melakukan diet. Tapi tahukah ada sayuran tertentu yang sebenarnya bisa membuat orang gemuk.

Menurut para peneliti, kentang merupakan salah satu sayur yang dijadikan menu andalan dalam diet karena fator patinya tinggi dan kadar air yang rendah. Namun, kentang ternyata merupakan sayur yang dapat membuat badan bertambah gemuk.

Para peneliti di Harvard School of Public Health juga menemukan bahwa buah-buahan dan sayuran yang berbeda memiliki efek yang berbeda pada kenaikan berat badan. Buah dan sayur yang disorot adalah blueberry dan kentang.

Sejumlah porsi blueberry dalam satu hari dikaitkan dengan penurunan berat badan. Mungkin karena mereka menggantikan makanan pencuci mulut yang kaya lemak atau karena mengandung senyawa pengubah metabolisme polifenol.

Tapi kentang justru berhubungan dengan penambahan berat badan antara peserta penelitian. Membuat peneliti merekomendasikan beras atau roti sebagai gantinya.

Penelitian dilakukan selama lebih dari 24 tahun. Setiap empat tahun peserta ditanya seberapa sering mereka menyantap 131 makanan yang berbeda, termasuk menjalani penimbangan berat badan dan ditanya tentang kebiasaan olah raga, menonton TV, dan merokok.

Tidak mengherankan, asupan tinggi buah dan sayuran dikaitkan dengan penurunan berat badan selama periode 24 tahun. Dari sayuran yang paling mungkin untuk membantu mengurangi obesitas, kembang kol, kubis Brussel dan brokoli adalah yang terbaik. Buah-buahan lainnya terkait dengan penurunan berat badan termasuk plum, apel, pir, dan stroberi.

Menurut perkiraan oleh Badan Kesehatan Masyarakat Inggris, dua pertiga orang dewasa dan seperempat dari anak-anak berusia antara dua dan sepuluh tahun di Inggris memiliki kelebihan berat badan atau obesitas.

Bahkan International Journal of Obesity memperkirakan pada 2034 sebanyak 70 persen dari orang dewasa Inggris akan kelebihan berat badan atau obesitas. sementara itu, Di AS, lebih dari sepertiga orang dewasa obesitas (34,9 persen), seperti dirilis oleh Journal of American Medicine, seperti dikutip dari Independent.

Put down the potatoes.

A new study has found that they are one of the most fattening vegetables around.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health analysed the dietary information of more than 130,000 American men and women and found that potatoes, peas, and sweetcorn were all linked to weight gain.

Every four years, for 24 years, the participants answered questions related to how often they ate 131 different foods. They were also weighed regularly, asked about their smoking, exercise and TV watching habits, and other aspects of their lifestyle.

Unsurprisingly, they found that a high intake of fruit and vegetables led to weight loss over the 24 year period, but the researchers also found that eating fruit appears to be twice as effective as eating vegetables. Every extra portion of fruit eaten a day led to almost half a pound being shed over the four year period.

A handful of blueberries a day was linked to nearly a pound and a half of weight loss, and prunes, apples, pears and strawberries were also found to contribute to weight loss.

The researchers explained that this could be due to people substituting them for typically fattening desserts, or the fruits themselves being rich in polyphenols – a compound credited with altering the metabolism.

Cauliflower, broccoli and Brussel sprouts were named as the vegetables that contributed to weight loss.

Because of their high starch and low water content, potatoes are higher in calories than most vegetables, and were therefore linked to weight gain amongst participants. Researcher Monica Bertoia recommended brown rice and wholemeal bread as an alternative to potatoes.

She added: “Although the magnitude of weight change associated with each increased daily serving was modest, combining an increase of one to two servings of vegetables and one to two servings of fruits daily would be associated with substantial weight change.”

Rebecca Lawton, of the British Diabetic Association, said we shouldn’t be too quick to remove potatoes from our diets. Speaking to the Daily Mail she said: “There are lots of good things about potatoes.

“They are high in vitamin C and potassium and they are high in fibre and quite filling.”

The BDA advises that our combined intake of potatoes, bread, rice, and pasta be limited to a fist-sized portion per meal.
