Avocados – a wonder fruit in weight management

Eliminating grain carbs from your diet is one of the best and easiest ways to normalize your weight and support your health, but when you cut down on non-vegetable carbs, you need to increase your intake of healthy fats. Avocados are an excellent source of healthy fats. They're especially rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that is easily burned for energy, which you need more once you start to remove those carbs.

Improved weight management is in fact one of the health benefits of avocado consumption and its high-fat, low-sugar content is part and parcel of this effect. Avocados are also helpful for regulating blood sugar levels.

As a general rule, most people need upwards of 50-85 percent healthy fat in their diet, along with high amounts of vegetable carbs, moderate-to-low amounts of high-quality protein, and very little, if any, non-vegetable or grain carbs.

Fat is far more satiating than carbs, so if you have cut down on carbs and feel ravenous, thinking you can't do without the carbs, remember this is a sign that you haven't replaced them with sufficient amounts of fat. You just need to make sure you are adding the correct fat to your diet.

Healthy fats include olive oil, coconut oil, as well as other unheated organic nut oils, egg yolks, raw nuts, etc. Avocados are so low in fructose which is another great boon of this fruit. They also provide close to 20 essential health-boosting nutrients including essential vitamins.

Include an avocado in your meals and keep your weight in check.
