How Avocado Can Help with Weight Management

Story at-a-glance -

  • Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat that is easily burned for energy
  • They also provide close to 20 essential health-boosting nutrients, including potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid, and enable your body to more efficiently absorb fat-soluble nutrients in other foods
  • According to a recent study, eating just one-half of a fresh avocado with lunch may satiate you if you’re overweight, which will help prevent unnecessary snacking later
