Forbidden Fruit MELTS Fat (Delicious!)
The “fat will make you fat” mantra is just more bad health advice perpetuated by Uncle Sam.
The true cause of weight gain and diabetes is sugar and carbohydrates—not good, healthy fats.
Now there’s science to prove it!
A recent study shows that one of the fattiest fruits on the planet can actually help you lose weight and avoid type 2 diabetes.
And the mainstream has told you it was forbidden for decades.
If it’s possible for a food item to be “in vogue,” avocadoes fit the bill.
Millennials have made avocadoes—and avocado toast—a popular item on café menus across the country.
I might disagree with a lot of how this younger generation thinks, but they’re on the right target when it comes to the creamy, delicious avocado.
Avocadoes are loaded with healthy fats. In fact, with 77% of its calories being made up of fat, it’s one of the fattiest plant foods you can eat.
They can reduce your cholesterol and triglycerides and lower your risk of metabolic syndrome, cataracts, macular degeneration, and even cancer.
And now, according to a study published in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, they can even help prevent weight gain and diabetes.
That’s right, one of the fattiest plant foods on the planet can actually help you lose weight.
The secret is found in a compound in avocado called AvoB.
In a mouse study, researchers fed the mice high-fat diets for eight weeks to induce obesity and insulin resistance. Then, for five weeks, they gave AvoB to half of the group.
The AvoB prevented weight gain and improved insulin sensitivity in the mice fed a high-fat diet.
Increased insulin sensitivity means your body can take sugar out of the blood and use it for energy. This is key to reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.
And a key reason why it can prevent weight gain is because AvoB can help make sure that your body burns stored fat.
If you ask me, you can’t get too much avocado.
Eat them because they’re delicious… or eat them for their health benefits.
Just make sure you’re getting plenty of them in your diet.
