Today we’re going to talk about why avocados can help you lose weight. There is a specific fat molecule called avocatin-B that is unique to avocados. A study out of Canada found that mice lost weight, and their diabetes type 2 improved when given this fat molecule. They also found that humans lost weight when given this fat molecule that came from avocados. The fat molecule even has anti-cancer properties.
This fat molecule can help people lose weight because it is involved in complete fatty acid oxidation. When fat is fully oxidized it can improve glucose tolerance and enhance insulin sensitivity. This directly decreases insulin resistance.
Although avocados can help you lose weight, they probably won’t do much unless you’re also doing other things to support weight loss. But, this helps us see the connection to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is at the core of weight problems. Anything you can do to improve insulin resistance will help you lose weight.
It’s important to be aware of the factors that will help you lessen insulin resistance, such as:
• Decreasing stress
• Fiber from low-carb vegetables
• Apple cider vinegar (acetic acid)
• Taking cinnamon
• Taking vitamin D, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B1
• Green tea
• A low-carb diet
• Regular intermittent fasting and periodic prolonged fasting
