The mango season is here and so is the fear. Just to state the fact, mango is just as fattening, or not, as the apple. The reason why you never feared apples is... 1. It doesn’t taste as good as mangoes, 2. It is promoted by doctors and dieticians, 3. You even learnt about it in school.
Tasty is not the same as fattening; just as yucky is not the same as healthy. The sweetness of the mango is its primary virtue. And the sugar in mango is natural, exactly like the way mother nature designed it to be. Eating a fruit that is naturally sweet only helps you. Eating a ‘naturally sweetened’ cupcake/ice cream will not.
