An avocado cure

One of the simplest and most delicious ways to lose weight and keep us in shape is eating avocado. We’re probably all used to bland salads, skimmed milk, weight loss supplements, diuretic teas. There are much simpler and also much more effective methods to get rid of the extra pounds.

Nutrition specialists argue that one of the most effective and healthy ways to maintain our silhouette is the cure with avocado. Avocado is a tasty and nutritious fruit, rich in healthy fats, which helps stimulate caloric burning. Over 75% of the calories provided by avocado come from monounsaturated fats. These fats are essential to the proper functioning of the body without presenting a danger to the silhouette.

An avocado diet brings us health benefits. It controls cholesterol, a substance that promotes fat deposits on the abdomen. Consumption of this fruit increases the level of testosterone in the body, stimulating muscle development and in addition facilitates the absorption of vitamins in the body.

This wonder fruit, provides protection against cardiovascular disease, while ensuring the beauty of the skin and hair. Fats present in avocado fruit are more slowly digested than carbohydrates, which helps us to keep we full over a longer period of time, without being tempted by snacks between meals.

An avocado contains about 4 g of protein, 30 g of fat, magnesium, potassium and 16 g of carbohydrates. Avocado contains about 180 mg more potassium than a banana. Potassium and magnesium are 2 electrolytes that are lost in the body when we make intense physical movement. This fruit is not only an excellent source of healthy fat, but also an important source of essential nutrients.

Eating this fruit, according to nutritional experts, reduces the level of bad cholesterol, while increasing the beneficial one. In this way the waist is thinned and the entire cardiovascular system is protected. Due to the content of L-carnitine, an amino acid that is usually found in the liver and that stimulates metabolism, caloric burns are more intense, helping to eliminate excess fat.

We all know that traditional fruits are picked after ripening, but in the case of avocado fruit, it bakes after it has been picked. When buying this fruit from the supermarket it is good to test its consistency with your finger. If it is mole when we press it gently it means it is ripe and we can consume it immediately. It can be stored in this state 4-5 days in the refrigerator until we want to prepare it.

If the fruit is hard, when we press, it means it’s still raw. It’s still not good for consumption. We can buy it and speed up its baking process if we put it in a paper bag at room temperature for a few days. Very soft fruits when pressed are not recommended for consumption.

There are many diets for weight loss that can cause certain deficiencies of vitamins and minerals, when the daily menu is not well made up. A diet that includes avocados provides us with almost all the necessary nutrients.

Added to salads, it promotes better absorption of some vitamins found in greens, vegetables and some fruits. Along with carotenoids, which are powerful antioxidants, vitamins are absorbed much better in the body in the presence of fats.

We can add avocado slices to salads, omelettes, sandwiches, paste, instead of mayonnaise or in various preparations. I suggest you also read the article: “My favorite dessert with avocado“.

Guacamole is an extremely tasty Mexican avocado-based sauce. We need 2 well-baked fruits, one tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, half a finely chopped onions, 1-2 finely chopped chillies, 2 teaspoons finely chopped coriander (or coriander beans grated on the spot), one teaspoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, pepper to taste, 1 peeled red skin and cut cubes (or cherry tomatoes).

Avocado is cleaned from the shell, removed the seed and crushed with the fork, without homogenizing the composition too hard, so that at the end the sauce must remain as consistent as possible. Add the other ingredients and stir. Consume fresh immediately after preparation.
