7 Reasons I Love Avocados More Than You
1 | Avocados Help Me Burn Belly Fat
That’s right! They boost your burnin’ hot metabolism. Plus their high healthy fat & fiber content will satiate you.
After eating a big hass avocado, you should be adequately satisfied. It’ll fill you up and squash your cravings.
This is why eating avocados definitely made our 39 Tips To Burn Belly Fat. You can grab your Free copy of these 39 tips here:
2 | Avocados Are Loaded With So Many Vitamins & Nutrients
I already quickly mentioned avocado’s high healthy fat & fiber content, but this fiber is what makes up the majority of the carbohydrates contained in avocados. So, avocados would definitely be considered a ‘good’ carb.
We’ll get more into avocado’s healthy monounsaturated fat with oleic acid content in the 3rd reason. Moving on to more vitamins & nutrients, avocados contain over 20 different ones!
Here’s a list of some of the most present vitamins & nutrients:
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin A
3 | Avocados Keep My Heart Healthy
This food, that a co-worker of mine once scoffed at for being ‘fattening’, will actually help decrease your overall risk for heart disease. This is mostly because of all those vitamins & nutrients along with… wait for it… Their high fat content! Specifically the monounsaturated fat and oleic acid content.
So, little miss co-worker, since avocados are ‘fattening’ they help reduce your risk for heart disease.
AND, not only that! Plus, here comes your proof!
In early 2013 there was a study published in Nutrition Journal that stated avocados were associated with a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome. Basically that along with reducing your risk of heart disease, they also reduce your risk of stroke and diabetes!
Are you starting to understand why I love avocados more than you?!
4 | Avocado’s High Healthy Fat Content Cause My Body To Better Absorb All The Nutrients
While avocados are considered fruits, they’re unlike other fruits. Most other fruits are high in carbohydrates and, like I mentioned earlier, the majority of avocado carb content is made up of fiber. But the biggest difference is, of course, this fruit’s high fat content.
This high fat content, specifically the monounsaturated fat and oleic acid, cause your body to better absorb vitamins & nutrients. It’s because most of the vitamins & nutrients are fat soluble, which means they should be combined with fat to get absorbed within your body and help give you all these amazing benefits.
This is especially true if you eat avocados while eating other foods high in antioxidants or taking antioxidant supplements. For example, if you were eating an avocado while ingesting some vitamin C capsules and some liposomal glutathione, your body will better absorb the vitamin C and glutathione.
For all my Avoiding Hangovers people, this greater absorption rate of these two antioxidants will help you prevent hangovers without ditching the beer.
This is also a great way to increase the absorption rate of any antioxidants for, say, reducing cancer risks or boosting your immune system.
5 | Avocados Are A Great Source Of Fiber
I know I already mentioned this a few times, but it is an important reason why I love avocados more than you.
This fiber content helps to reduce the insulin spikes you would normally expect from the carbs & sugar in fruits. But, remember avocados are different than most fruits, those carbs are fiber.
This fiber content will also help promote a healthy gut, which is one of the 7 Essential Concepts To Help Burn Off Belly Fat.
6 | Avocados Improve My Overall Cholesterol
Avocado’s high fat content has actually been proven to increase your HDL levels (considered ‘good’ cholesterol) and decrease your LDL levels (considered ‘bad’ cholesterol).
I know this is an older study, but in 1996 it was published in the Archives of Medical Research Journal where they found patients with high cholesterol who added avocados to their diet for one week had a 22% decrease in those LDL numbers and their triglyceride levels. It also found that these patients had an 11% increase in their HDL numbers.
I understand these numbers may not seem too significant, but remember this was only after one week of eating avocados everyday. That’s actually Burnin’ Awesome!
If you’re taking cholesterol meds, I would seriously try to ween yourself off of them by eating more avocados. Of course, results may vary, but I think it’s really worth a try. Those cholesterol meds are probably throwing your hormones into Wacky World and causing a less than healthy gut.
I’m only suggesting you do your own self study. Try a little experiment on yourself. You could even go check out WellnessFX to have a Baseline Blood Panel done. Then you add a heavy dose of avocados to your diet over the next 4-6 months. After that, go back to WellnessFX to have another Baseline Blood Panel done.
Compare your results. I’m willing to bet you have some major improvements to your overall cholesterol levels.
7 | Avocados Are A Better Source Of Potassium Than Bananas
Most likely you aren’t getting enough potassium in your life. I certainly am, since I love avocados more than you. But, the mainstream & conventional advice to you would be to eat more bananas.
Great. Thanks for the awesome advice.
Why not recommend avocados? I know why, I know why! It’s because of their high fat content. Mainstream & conventional wisdom is still scared of the ‘fattening’. It’s a bunch of BS!
Avocados are clearly the better choice over bananas.
If you’re someone who pays attention to those recommended dietary allowance percentages, or the RDAs, then maybe you’ve noticed bananas are only at 10% of the recommended dietary allowance for potassium compared to 14% for avocados.
Not that I’m someone who pays attention to that kind of thing. I mean, who really cares? The better gauge is how does your body react to eating avocados? How else do avocados help your body better than bananas?
That’s what you should concern yourself with. Oh yea, and those higher potassium levels in avocados will help reduce your blood pressure.
Give me an avocado over a banana any day!
