Avocados Linked to Weight Loss

Half an avocado a day helps weight loss and cuts the risk of heard disease and diabetes too, research by Louisiana State University suggests.  Avocados are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre and good fat, making us feel full for longer; regular eaters are one third less likely to be overweight.  The monounsaturated fats help prevent heart disease and also lower blood pressure and inflammation.

Avocado is great on toast instead of butter, or spice it up with a Guacamole or Salsa dip: recipes in our book!
