“Inflammation in the body leads to hormonal imbalances that increase abdominal fat and make weight loss difficult,” says Violet Santana, nutritionist and author of Operation Cleanse - 14 Day Detox to Reset Digestion and Weight Loss. An easy way to combat those unwanted side effects is by eating ant-inflammatory foods such as avocados.

Let’s start with the fact that avocados are on trend and super easy to find for at-home cooking or on the menus at your favorite restaurants. Santana suggests we eat them with breakfast for the best weigh loss benefits.

Avocados are anti-inflammatory and packed with antioxidants. They are naturally high in unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, and many B vitamins as well as potassium and magnesium.

“While the avocado is rich in healthy oils, it’s not as high in calories as people fear,” says Santana. Much of it is composed of water and fiber, and both help keep you feeling full. So starting the morning with an avocado helps you avoid hunger pitfalls later in the day.

Enjoy avocados in all sorts of yummy, savory breakfasts from avocado toast with a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes to scrambled egg burritos stuffed with avocado to smoked salmon with capers and avocado.
