Here’s how onion can work wonders in shedding excess weight

As busyness in everyday work schedules increases, taking proper care of mental and physical health decreases. Especially those who are regular office-goers, covering long distances, tend to somewhat neglect their well-being and have to mainly rely on fast foods owing to time crunch.

It is not unknown to us that sitting for longer hours in the office leads to obesity and increased laziness. And obesity has now become an excessively common global health concern. But, recently researchers have raised a yet another fact that corporate jobs that demands work sitting for a long time also increases the risk of heart attack at an early age.

While we know physical exercises and a daily walk for at least 30 minutes are a must for an active life, physicians are also putting increased emphasis on nutritious diet.

If you are someone who is struggling to lose weight faster, nutritionists say keeping low-calorie foods in your daily diet will help you get back in good shape. Moreover, the kind of food that is digested immediately, or the food that helps in digestion should be eaten daily. One such vegetable is onion. 

  1. Onions contain a special substance called quarcetin that helps in aiding quick weight loss. Doctors advise people to eat onion every day who are suffering from obesity. You can include onions in salads, pulses, soups or any other recipes to yield multiple health benefits. 
  2. Onions are loaded with fiber, which helps in enhanced digestion. As the metabolic rate increases, the chances of fat accumulation decreases. One cup of onion contains about three grams of fiber. 
  3. Onion is a low-calorie vegetable. One cup of onions contain 64 calories. The calorie content is so less that eating a handful of the vegetable will not cause any harm to your body.
