Mushrooms are very low in saturated fats, sodium and cholesterol and are good source of dietary fiber and Potassium. In addition, white button mushroom extract has been found to reduce the size of some cancer tumors and slow down the production of some cancer cells. It is most prominently linked to reducing the risk of breast and prostate cancer.

For those who are always looking for nutritious weight loss foods to pack into our diets, mushrooms are a less well-known option. Like watermelon, they are very high in water content (80 to 90% water) and fiber which makes them a great diet food!
