Can you lose weight by eating avocado?

The Shea butter, which has entered China from abroad, has become a synonym for a healthy, low-fat, light and luxurious life. But whether avocado can lose weight, we still need to ask a question mark, after all, every 100 grams of avocado contains 15 grams of fat, eating avocado and eating pork is not really different. In order to understand the nutrition of avocado, the reporter interviewed a number of nutrition experts.

Peng Yigu, a national secondary public nutritionist and director of Changsha Municipal Nutrition Society, introduced that about 200 grams of avocado, according to the nutritional composition of every 100 grams edible part, protein accounts for 2%; carbohydrate accounts for 8%; sugar content is only 0.3%; fat content is 15%. Among them, monounsaturated fatty acid content is 9.8 grams, saturated fatty acid content is 2.1 grams, which is close to olive oil because This fatty acid structure is quite healthy.

In addition, the general potassium content of vegetables and fruits is not low, avocado is one of the best, there are 507 mg potassium per 100 grams, there are 6.8 grams of dietary fiber. The main role of potassium in human body is to maintain acid-base balance, participate in energy metabolism and maintain the normal function of nerves and muscles. “Because potassium can maintain myocardial function, it is not unreasonable to say that avocados have cardioprotective effects. But it can not be used as a health product to eat, if the body is really deficient in potassium, should go to the hospital to consult a professional doctor. Peng Yigu said.
