As a herbalist, I admit that my diet high in carbohydrates (which includes absolutely tons of sweet potatoes, whole grains and dates) gives me energy for my CrossFit explosive exercises, but I just felt hungry shortly after eating Then I just ate more, which resulted in a weight gain of 10 pounds during the last year or so. And no, it was not muscle.
Many experts suggest that you include healthy fats in your diet to help you feel more satiated, so you eat less. Would that be for me? Whole Health Nutrition's registered dietitian Leslie Langevin, MS, RD, told POPSUGAR that healthy fats are essential for weight loss because they "keep us full and satisfied to get digested slower than carbohydrates." Avocados are one of the foods that they recommend to customers to help them lose weight.
My avocado experiment
I was used to eating half avocado several times a week, but I thought: what if I ate an entire avocado every day? How I feel? Would I stay longer? I just eat fewer calories a day? Lose weight Or, because they are high in calories, would you gain weight? I took out my pink salt from the Himalayan Sea, a sharp knife and a spoon, and was prepared to see what would happen.
