sweet potato recommended for staple diet

【”主食にサツマイモ”のすすめ】EN follows

ジャガイモは英語で”potato”、対してサツマイモは”sweet potato”。英名通りでサツマイモは甘いですね。だからサツマイモは減量中は食べないほうがいいって思っていらっしゃいませんか?そんなことないんです!減量中にもオススメな食材なんです!!

■ 血糖値をコントロール、腹持ち抜群!
注目はGI(glycemic index )値。GI値が低いほど、血糖値が上がりにくい=糖質が身体に溜め込まずに長時間エネルギー源として使用され続ける、ということ。減量中ならGI値が60以下の食品を主食とするのがおすすです。サツマイモの方がジャガイモよりもカロリーは高いので不思議な話ですけど、サツマイモは食物繊維が2倍。糖質の吸収が穏やかになるので、ジャガイモより腹持ちがよく、太りにくいとも言えるわけです。GI値が低いと、食後に眠くなる、なんてこともなくなります。

When you are during a weight control, you should choose food with GI lower than 60. Sweet potatoes have more calories than potatoes, but because of the high amount of dietary fiber, the sugar is consumed slowly and keeps your stomach satisfied for a long period. Which means sweet potatoes are more suitable for slimming than potatoes are. Eating low GI food also prevents becoming dozy after lunch.
