Losing weight has always been a challenge to many and keeping it off a much bigger challenge to others and those of us who are determined to lose it are often willing to spend money on gym memberships, equipment and supplements that can help us burn calories and tone down. There are many natural fat burners out there that you can use that can save you a pretty penny and the avocado has elements that are even sold separately as fat burning products.
Take the avocado for instance, as this fruit is available in most all supermarkets, and is one of the best natural fat burners around. First off avocados contain monounsaturated fats and the calories come from 75% of this fat which is a great fatty acid that is helpful in reducing LDL cholesterol which causes heart problems and weight gain and can increase the good lipoprotein. By lowering your bad cholesterol you can increase your fitness, which can help you to exercise and shed more bad weight. You will also be able to increase your metabolism naturally because your blood will get around your system more efficiently.
Avocados are also high in L carnitine, which is an amino acid and has a carbon compound which is found in protein. This wonderful amino acid is processed in the liver and is used for metabolizing fat, fat loss and greatly improves blood circulation and energy production in the brain. Metabolizing your fat is what we want and the role of the carnitine is to carry the fat in our cells to the mitochondria which is the part of the cells that burns fat to turn it into useable energy and without this you will not be able to burn the fat in your body and this means that you are not going to get rid of that extra fat on your body.
These monounsaturated fats also help the body in processing insulin, which is wonderful for diabetics as this allows in keeping their glucose levels down. It encourages the body to burn more glucose levels so that it does not store fat.
Avocados also contain great fiber, which helps the body in detoxifying itself by flushing through the body, and clearing out the digestive tract, clear out cholesterol and urinary tracts. Potassium can also be found in avocados (avocados contain 60% more potassium than bananas) and can supply the body with a range of other important nutrients like magnesium, vitamin B, K and E and potassium can also reduce your belly fat and prevent fluid retention.
