Rujuta took to her social media page to first share the myths surrounding the succulent fruit.
Her caption indicates she gets a lot of queries regarding mangoes. Now that summer is here, mangoes are in demand in every household.

The lies -
1. It’s very high in sugar and calories
2. It’s very high on glycemic index
3. People with Diabetes and obesity should avoid eating it.
In the next post, Rujuta busted the myths she mentioned in her previous tweet. She revealed that mangoes are not only storehouses of nutrients, but are also rich in antioxidants.
The truth -— Rujuta Diwekar (@RujutaDiwekar) April 30, 2018
1. Mango is great to taste, is in season and a store house of nutrients
2. It is low on glycemic index
3. It is not just safe but recommended for people with Diabetes and obesity for its rich nutrient profile. High on fibre, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Rujuta, who was behind Kareena Kapoor Khan's post-pregnancy weight loss, has always encouraged her clients to eat healthy, and that includes the proper intake of milk, ghee, cheese and also sugar — stuff we believe to be culprits behind weight gain. Of course, one needs to have them in moderation.
So, now that your misconceptions about mangoes have been cleared, go ahead and indulge.
