Having high mono saturated fats, avocado consumption helps people sustain their nutrition longer and experience a higher weight loss on a higher fat diet (which is 30% heart healthy fats as found in avocados) as compared with the low healthy fats. The reason is that fats can decrease the release of sugar in the blood stream, which ultimately leads to less insulin release.
Avocado also packs a punch of a unique weight loss carbohydrate known as mannoheptulose that research links with lower insulin levels.
3. Whey Protein
Protein is the essential ingredient in maintaining a healthy body balance, blood sugar level, and muscle build up. Whey protein also helps to reduce the overall food consumption.
A study conducted in the University of Toronto found that consuming whey protein helped the participants to avoid over eating.
4. Chia Seeds
Chia seed is the greatest source of omega-3s in nature, having a 65% of its total fat from omega-3 fatty acids. It is also rich in fiber, magnesium, potassium, folic acid iron and calcium.
Research reveals that chia balances blood sugar level and alleviates symptoms related to metabolic syndrome.
