The most unusual avocado fruit in the world (yes, we also thought it was a vegetable for a long time) is considered one of the most high-calorie foods. One ripe large fruit contains up to 500 kcal, which did not prevent it from becoming a food favorite on the table of healthy lifestyle adherents and the main ingredient in weight loss diets. Understanding why fatty and high-calorie avocados have become a weight loss tool.
Despite the high calorie content, the delicious fruit has a very low glycemic index (10 units) – which is why, having breakfast with whole grain toast with egg, avocado and sea salt, you will not feel hunger for the next 3-4 hours. This means that the desire to drink a cappuccino with a chocolate bar will be minimized. In addition, avocados contain: the amino acid L-carnitine, adored by fitness trainers, which accelerates metabolism and perfectly burns adipose tissue cells (as well as visceral fat), and oleic acid, which prevents the formation and breaks down the already accumulated cholesterol in the blood. This is why avocados for weight loss are not a myth.
