Sweet potatoes are low-calorie, low-fat and satiety foods. The following three ways to have sweet potatoes are more beneficial for weight loss.
1) Eat Sweet Potato with skin
The fiber content of sweet potatoes mainly comes from the peel.
Fiber helps increase feelings of fullness, support a healthy gut microbiome, and manage blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
2) Replace with the starchy food
Eg. Sweet potato congee, could add some sweet potato chunks to replace white rice
White rice has high glycemic index while sweet potato is fairly low.
3) Place the cooked sweet potato in the fridge for about 1 – 2 hours to reduce the calories absorption
