Reasons to Eat One less Gulab Jamun This Eid
Gulab Jamun is one of the hundreds of traditional Asian desserts (Mithaayi). Asian desserts are no doubt ones of the most delicious desserts in the world. Most of the desserts, however, do not have nutritional benefits at all. Some have yet to do a lot of bad for you.
Gulab Jamun can rightly be called the King of all desserts eaten in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and other neighboring countries. Most people savor them very frequently on each of their different festivities, on Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Azha, wedding ceremonies, and likewise on the celebration many other occasions.
A small quantity of this (or any other such dessert) is of no remarkable harm for your body. But if you eat a sufficient amount of Gulab Jamun, it may be a big reason to worry.
Basic Preparation of Gulab Jamun
A single Gulab Jamun is a ball-shaped dessert and the size may vary depending upon the preparation criteria. A medium-sized Gulab Jamun contains more than 200 calories, 12 mg of cholesterol and 10 mg fat. It also contains an accidentally little amount of some of the vitamins and metal nutrients.
The preparation is based on, khoya, milk solids from which the water content has been gradually evaporated through prolonged boiling on lower temperatures. It is then deep-fried in ghee, kept and served in super-saturated sugar syrup. Here I discuss the reasons why you should avoid this dessert in order to maintain your health plan.
It Will Boost Your Fat Accumulation
One Gulab Jamun contains more calories than several high calorie foods. The calories will be accumulated inside your body and affect your weight in a severely negative way.

The sugar rich syrup is what I call a belly fat booster. You should normally avoid any sugary food or beverages if you are not exercising and yet want to maintain your body fat. Excess sugar accumulates inside your body as visceral fat and makes you a fatso. 
Gulab Jamun has ingredients that have a direct relation with the type 2 diabetes. If taken too much, the amount of fats, calories and sugar in this little dessert is very much sufficient to boost the process of insulin resistance and developing diabetes. 
Atherosclerosis and Cardiovascular Disease
Ghee, used in the preparation of such dessert is the worse part. I rather suggest a homemade dessert, prepared in oil or butter instead of ghee. Ghee we normally find around us has a huge amount of cholesterol oxides and oxidants that are severely injurious to our health. This also anticipates increased risk of cardiovascular disease as well as atherosclerotic complications.
