The problem is not in the potatoes … but in the way they are prepared

The potato provides many nutrients in the human body, is a combination of vitamins such as B6 and C, minerals such as magnesium and potassium, but potatoes lose their health benefits and only begin to prepare them.

"The potato has become infamous, not for itself, but because it is processed and processed in modern nutrition," said Charles Miller, a professor of nutrition and nutrition at New York University.

A medium-sized potato provides about 15 percent of the daily intake of magnesium and about 20 percent of potassium a day, the Washington Post reported.

The same pill contains 4 grams of fiber that helps reduce cholesterol, protect against diabetes and control weight, and even reduce the risk of colon cancer.

If you add baked potato milk, calories increase to 195 calories, carbohydrates become 36 grams, and fiber stays the same as 4 grams. To this extent, things remain healthy.

But the problems begin to appear when you add a tablespoon of butter and two sour cream to a medium-sized potato, adding about 100 new calories and 9 grams of fat, and that's where the risk is.

Moyler is recommended to eat potatoes in their entirety, because it will ensure that all fibers are used in them. The adult person needs 25 to 30 grams of fiber every day.

While all types of potatoes, baked, cooked, fried and mashed, were associated with the possibility of some diseases, the fried were the worst.

A study conducted at Harvard University found that those who ate boiled, boiled or mashed potatoes 4 times or more a month had a 11% higher risk of developing high blood pressure, compared to 17% who ate fried potatoes.

To make the potatoes tasty and healthy at the same time, all you have to do is cut them into cubes and "protect them" with a little rosemary, olive oil, salt and pepper while keeping a minimum of spices.
