Eat Avocados to Lose Weight!By Sanya Bajaj - 8 September 2020
Recently researchers did a surprising revelation about how important avocados are for us. They have called it a wonder food which can help people dealing with obesity by changing their eating habits. Apart from this, it also helps in increasing meal satisfaction in obese adults. Even a few changes in the dietary plan can have a strong impact on your hunger and metabolism control.
The team of researchers judged the underlying physiological effects of including whole and half fresh avocados on hunger, fullness, and how satisfied subjects felt over a six-hour period. The research was done on 31 overweight people, the dietary changes were also shown to limit insulin and blood glucose excursions, further reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease by adding healthy fats and fibres into a regular daily diet.
“For years, fats have been targeted as the main cause of obesity, and now carbohydrates have come under scrutiny for their role in appetite regulation and weight control,” said Britt Burton-Freeman, lead researcher of the study.
“There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to optimal meal composition for managing appetite. However, understanding the relationship between food chemistry and its physiological effects in different populations can reveal opportunities for addressing appetite control and reducing rates of obesity, putting us a step closer to personalized dietary recommendations,” Burton-Freeman added.
In all, the research found that adding avocados in your diet plays a significant role in the reduction in hunger and also increases the chances of satisfaction. Besides this, they also disclosed that an intestinal hormone called PYY was an important messenger of the physiological response.
