    Can Figs be Used for Weight Loss?

    I have heard that Figs are useful for loosing weight but some blog I found it is also used for gaining weight. If it can be useful for reducing weight then how should it be used?

    Figs are known to lower blood sugar levels. And that is why they are particularly helpful for diabetics. Figs are high in fiber and low in calories. They should be had in moderation in-between meals rather than having high calorie sugary snacks. Since figs are low in calories they help reduce weight. They can be used as a sugar substitute in desserts.
    Figs, being rich in antioxidants have many other health benefits too, preventing cancer and heart diseases being few of them...
