Did I Lose Weight?
Adding more healthy fats to my days definitely helped my meals feel more satisfying, and I felt fuller longer. And at night I felt more content and my sugar cravings weren't as strong, which was a huge positive bonus I wasn't expecting.
Did I lose weight? Nope. But I didn't gain weight either, which I thought could happen, seeing as one large avocado contains 365 calories. But because feeling more satiated cut down on my other mindless snacking on nuts and an after-dinner dessert, it all worked out.
Will I keep it up? I'll definitely enjoy one avocado a day, at least three or four times a week, because I loved that it helped with sugar cravings. But for the most part, half an avocado has been working just fine. I do feel better about including more avocado in my diet, using it as a butter replacement in muffin recipes and "buttercream" frosting, or throwing it in my smoothies. People are always saying that eating too much will make you gain weight. That didn't happen for me, so eating more avocado gets the green light in my book!
