There’s a reason guacamole is extra at your favorite restaurant.

When eaten in place of refined carbohydrates, avocados can suppress hunger without adding calories.

It’s all about appetite control.

Take it from a new study out of the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Overweight and obese individuals in the clinical trial reported increased meal satisfaction and significant hunger suppression when fresh avocado replaced refined carbs.

The swap was also good for insulin and blood glucose levels which lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

It’s all thanks to the good fats and fibers in avocados.

Fats and carbs have been thought to be the main culprits of obesity.

But the good fats in avocados might help folks control their weight and increase meal satisfaction, according to the new research.
