Eat This at lunch if You Want to Feel Full for Longer!
If you are like most people, you love to eat! In fact, many people say eating is their favorite thing to do. Nothing is worse than trying to lose a few pounds and feeling hunger pangs. Well, there is a certain kind of food that is not only good for you but also helps you feel full for several hours. This is wonderful because it also puts great nutrients into your body and will keep you away from snacking on fattening and unhealthy junk food.
What is this food? It’s the avocado! New research shows that eating half an avocado at lunch helped overweight adults feel full for longer in the hours after lunch and before dinner. Dr. Joan Sabate, a Professor of Nutrition at Loma Linda University School of Public Health, writes, “Avocados are a very popular and delicious fruit, and from the results of our study, may also be helpful for people who are looking to better manage their weight.”
In the study, the group who ate half an avocado with their lunch was 40 percent less likely to want to eat again over the three hours following lunch and 28 percent less likely to want to eat again over the five hours following lunch compared with the group who did not have any avocado in their lunch. The downside to this study is that it was only done with 26 people, so the results may not hold true for the population as a whole. But, who cares? Avocados are great for you so give it a try and see how it works for you!
