Nutty and buttery avocados are healthy and delicious! Did you know that you can go on an avocado diet for weight loss? Yes, you can. This lush green Mexican fruit is high in calories (322 calories) but contains high amounts of healthy fat (29 g), dietary fiber (13.5 g), and is rich in vitamins A, E, K, and C, iron, and calcium (1). Research suggests that the healthy fats in avocados may help with weight management in overweight and obese people and treat heart diseases, cancer, arthritis, and skin and hair issues (2). So, if you love avocados and want to lose weight without going hungry, try the avocado diet. Consuming avocados may help reduce cholesterol and inflammation, remove toxins, aid in good digestion, and protect the cells’ integrity. Here’s everything you need to know about the avocado diet for weight loss. Scroll

  • May Reduce Cholesterol And Triglycerides

Interestingly, avocados help reduce bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) and plasma triglyceridesi  XA type of fat that is not required to carry out essential functions and is stored by the body in case of excess calories. . LDL cholesterol can get deposited on the arterial walls and lead to stroke and heart attack. Abnormally high levels of plasma triglycerides can lead to atherosclerosisi  XA condition in which fat and cholesterols develop on the artery walls, cause them to grow narrower, and lead to blood clots. , may steer your body towards developing insulin resistance and diabetes (3). Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and help to lower serum LDL cholesterol. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology confirms that consumption of avocado can help reduce LDL cholesterol and serum triglycerides and improves good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol) levels in the blood (4).

  • May Increase Satiety

Avocados can help increase satiety and reduce appetite. In a study conducted by Loma Linda University, USA, the participants were divided into three groups, avocado-free, avocado inclusive, and avocado added. The blood glucose, insulin levels, and appetite were measured before and at specific intervals. The participants in the avocado inclusive group reported an increased satisfaction by 23% and a reduced appetite by 28%. And the participants in the avocado added group reported a greater satisfaction by 26% and a reduced appetite by 40% (5). So, by adding avocado to your diet, you will not feel hungry frequently because of satiation. This may ultimately prevent consumption of foods high in sugar and salt.

protip_icon Trivia
Avocado is also called “nature’s keto.” It can keep you full for at least five hours after consumption and signals the body to go into a fat-burning mode instead of storing it.
  • May Reduce Metabolic Syndrome Risk

According to Mayo Clinic, a large waist circumference is a clear sign that you may suffer from metabolic syndrome. It is a name given to a group of health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is directly linked to leading a sedentary lifestyle and weight gain. The MUFA and dietary fiber-rich Hass avocados can increase the intake of healthy fats and dietary fiber that will invariably increase your nutrition quality, reduce your waist circumference, limits consumption of sugary foods, and reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome (6).

  • May Reduce Oxidative Stress

Avocados can also contribute to reducing the oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress occurs when the levels of harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) rise due to normal cell functions, environmental stress, bad food habits, mental stress, disease, and UV exposure. The antioxidants and oleic acid present in avocados help reduce the oxidative stress and prevent DNA damage, reduces the risk of heart diseases, renal failure, inflammation-related obesity, and protects the proteins and lipids in your body from being altered by the reactive oxygen species. Avocado oil, seeds, and peel have also been found to have antioxidant properties that help maintain proper metabolism and cell function (7) (8) (9) (10).

It is clear that avocado flesh, peel, and seed are all nutrient-rich and can help reduce weight. Now, let me give you a 3-day avocado diet plan that involves eating one avocado per day along with other weight loss promoting foods. This meal plan may help you rejuvenate your cells and will assist them in proper functioning. Take a look at a sample 3-day routine in the next section.

Disclaimer: However, it is important to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new diet or exercise program. It will help you determine if you can follow this plan or not based on your medical condition.
