Lose weight and gain muscle; avocado

The avocado is a perfect ally to include in your diet. It is a high-fat food “healthy”, which provides the necessary nutrients in case of muscle overactivity so, if you exercise, do not be afraid of its fat content because it has many health benefits, you can even burn fat with the diet of the avocado.

Although historically (and erroneously) was vetoed in slimming diets because of its high fat content, in recent times in which the effectiveness of a healthy diet low in carbohydrates has been demonstrated, it has finally reached the position it deserves among the healthiest foods in the world.


The avocado is rich in Vitamin E, is antioxidant and protects the cell membrane, attributing anticancer properties. It is a formidable source of Vitamin C, it has Vitamin A and many minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron or zinc.

Besides regulating the nervous system, it is perfect if you suffer stress (which tends to make you eat more and worse), is a heart-healthy food and promotes good muscle function.

The ‘good fats’ contained in avocado are ideal for developing muscles without the need to increase the intake of other types of less healthy fats. If you also combine it properly, this green food can make you lose weight in a very short time.
