Washington: There`s cheerful news for potato lovers -- one does not need to stop consuming them to lose weight, a study says."When it comes to weight loss, it is not about eliminating a certain food or food groups. Rather, it is reducing calories that count," said Britt Burton-Freeman, University of California, Davis, who led the study. "There is no evidence that potatoes, when prepared in a healthy manner, contribute to weight gain. In fact, they can even be part of a weight loss programme," he added.
One medium-size skin-on potato contains just 110 calories per serving, boasts more potassium (620 grams) than a banana, provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. IANS
