Slimming with avocado

Author: admin

Here’s one of many myths that influence our health: consuming fats causes weight gain. Health experts are now saying not all fatty foods make you pile on the lard and that choosing your fats wisely can, in fact, help you lose weight. One of these healthy fats is the avocado, a fruit that comes with numerous health benefits, including weight loss. Just eat it as part of your healthy diet; one-third of an avocado, containing 7 gm of fibre, is packed with the best nutrients. The other option is to eat it in place of another food that is high in sugar or fat, which means you’re reducing your intake of a harmful ingredient. Any which way, you lose (weight) and thus win!
