Dessert lovers may no longer have to admit that they feel guilty for loving to eat sweets. New research shows that, comparing to those people who relatively indulge less in sweets and love to eat candy and chocolate, they will have a slender waist line, lower weight and body mass index (BMI). In addition, those people who love to eat candy and chocolate will have a lower risk of suffering from High Blood Pressure, which is 14 percent lower than people who don’t., and also will have a risk reduction of 15 percent from affected by Metabolic Syndrome, that is to say, they will have a lower risk from suffering heart disease and stroke. It is learned that the study will be released on the Nutrition Research magazine, Feb. Issue, and sponsored by the United States Candy Association and the US Department of Agriculture.
Many people think that sugar is the main cause for weight gain, but in fact, 100g sugar in general contain 384 calories, and by contrast a bowl of 100g rice in general contain 356 calories, so it could be seen that sugar is not a food especially high in calorie among carbohydrates. American Dietetic Association spokesman Heather Mangieri said, weight increase is not mainly because of sugar, but a greater intake of calories. Tallmadge recommended people to intake additional calories less than 10 percent, including candy, snacks and soft drinks. She pointed out that in the United States, it’s not sugar that causes obesity, but rather food like potato chips, soda or restaurant food. For this reason, a person who eats one ounce candies a day will have a lower weight and slender waist line, and this may be because they have a moderation on eating junk food. So here are several healthy desserts for weight loss, plus doing some exercises, they can help you quickly lose weight.
