Avocado is a wonder food that can suppress hunger

Are you suffering from obesity? Then it's time to add avocado to your daily diet. Meals that include fresh avocado as a substitute for refined carbohydrates can significantly suppress hunger and increase meal satisfaction in overweight and obese adults, a recent study suggests. 

A new study in the journal Nutrients adds more evidence to consider, by showing that overweight or obese volunteers who had eaten avocado as part of a meal felt less hungry after 6 hours, compared with those who had eaten a low-fat, high-carbohydrate meal.

The research found that meals including avocado not only resulted in a significant reduction in hunger and an increase in how satisfied participants felt, but also found that an intestinal hormone called PYY (PYY: A hormone concerned with hunger and the lack of hunger )was an important messenger of the physiological response.
