If you are one of those people who likes to eat avocado, good for you. For those who do not and wants to drop body fat, you may want to start eating avocado now. According to the mag I read Avocado are full of monounsaturated fat, which isn't generally stored as body fat. They also contain other compounds that can boost fat loss. The first one increases the production of thyroid hormone, which increases metabolic rate. The second one is mannoheptulose, a sugar that (Ironically) blunts insulin release. Since a higher metabolic rate burns more calories, and high insulin levels are associated with fat storage eating 1/2-1 avocado per day can help you lose those extra lumps. You can use avocado to make a good drink or just eat it the way you want it. This is one way to help you lose weight.
