Is avocado good for weight loss?

Rich in plant proteins and good quality fat (monoinsaturated), the avocado can be included in the diet of both those looking to lose weight and those aiming to gain muscle mass.
Although it’s calorie-rich, the fruit has a low carbohydrate content, which is great for those wanting to build muscles. Before exercising, it provides energy for the workout. Afterwards, its proteins assist in muscle recovery.

“It’s also good for those aiming to lose weight, as its satiety level is high. Therefore, it’s an excellent option to reduce appetite,” explains nutritionist Giovanna Oliveira.
