A food that satisfies hunger
Hunger and cravings can undermine your best efforts to maintain a healthy weight. Your objective should always be to leave the table with your hunger satisfied or to have a nutritious snack after a workout. That’s why you should keep this this dynamic duo of nutrients in mind: fibre and protein! Fibre lingers in the digestive tract, absorbs waterand forms a gel that slows digestion and keeps you full. Protein sends a message to your brain to tell you to stop eating and is a key nutrient for appetite control. Half an avocado contains 5 g of fibre, providing 20% of your daily requirement (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). And while avocado is low in protein, it is a rich and creamy complement to foods higher in protein. Adding avocado to your meal will help you feel full faster.
