Is Pap Good for weight loss? The basic truth about this question and the right answer which I’m giving to this is a capital “YES” I said yes to pap to be very relevant for weight loss due to the points which are discussed as you read on with this post. I tried taking pap every afternoon in replacement for my lunch for some weeks and despite the fact that i ate this meal with some proteins like fish, milk, meat or bean cake still, people around me observed and complain to me that I am getting lean and my tummy is flat now which is what I wanted. I then realize that if people can actually tell me that am getting slimmer, it means pap is good for losing weight which I am a witness to.
The reasons why I recommend you or anybody to eat pap for weight loss include;
1. Fiber: one of the major reason why I recommend pap for weight loss and saying yes to the question is that pap is majorly made from maize without any addition or subtraction of other foods. Pap contains a high amount of fiber in it. This makes it aids digestion and prevents the body from gaining so much fat that causes weight gain. So, if you thinking o losing weight with pap, it’s a right decision and works very fine for dieting. It is readily available in your area but much more easier for Africans since its their best food and very healthy meal.
2. No Fat: Like I said earlier about pap containing fiber, another major reason I believe pap is good for weight loss and confirming my answer as a yes is because pap is mainly made from maize which does not contain fat but only a high percentage of fiber which is best used for digestion and helps to lose weight. Pap also prevents the body and gaining so much fat because it does not contain fat. So, if you are thinking losing weight with foods like pap, it’s a right decision and works very fine.
3. Water: no matter how pap is prepared either as a liquid or semi liquid, it contains mainly water and fiber. If any food contains mainly water, it means such food won’t make you fat which is the best for weight loss. Water aids digestion process, it replenish lost nutrients in the body, it dissolve food particles, it increase the rate of metabolism of the body and it also help to lose weight naturally without side effect. Water in pap also prevent diseases other digestion related problem like constipation, skin diseases and pile.
4. No sugar: another fact why I say pap is good for weight loss and saying yes to the question is that pap is majorly made from maize without sugar. Pap contains no or low amount of sugar in it although people prefer to add sugar to it during consumption but it’s purely sugar free. This makes it a low calories food which also aids digestion and prevents the body from gaining so much sugar and fat that causes weight gain. So, if you want to lose weight with pap, it’s a right decision and works very fine. So, because it contains no sugar, it can be eaten by people with diabetes or it helps to cure diabetes due to its low sugar contents.
5. Light: is pap good for weight loss? I will say yes again and again because pap is one of the lightest foods ever known. It contains low calories, but still gives energy because it’s a carbohydrate produced from corn. Because it is low in calories, it can be used to maintain a weight or to lose weight in men or women. When you drink pap and think you are full, the digestion process of pap starts in the mouth which makes you grow hungry after urinating for 3 to 4 times which is one of the characteristics of a light food for weight loss.
6. No cholesterol: another reason why pap is good for weight loss is that it is not only low in cholesterol but doesn’t contain cholesterol at all but it contains a higher percentage of fiber which is used to improve the body rate of digestion and metabolism which are the basis of weight loss.
In conclusion, pap is good for weight loss due to some of the reasons discussed above which are due to lack of sugar, lack of fat, high amount of fiber, high amount of water and because it is a light food. A food with these properties is the best to lose weight.
