Consuming An Avocado Daily May Help Reduce Visceral Fat

Visceral fat is fat that wraps around your abdominal organs deep inside your body. Excess visceral fat may increase the risk of heart disease, glucose intolerance, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. According to a new study, consuming one avocado daily may help women reduce visceral fat.

Participants in the study included 105 adults with a BMI greater than 25 km/m2. Half of them consumed one avocado daily and half did not. The researchers evaluated visceral fat, subcutaneous fat, and the ratio of visceral fat to subcutaneous fat at baseline and at the end of the study period.

Women in the avocado group saw a greater reduction in visceral fat compared to those in the control group. They also saw a reduction in the visceral-subcutaneous fat ratio, which shows a redistribution of fat away from the organs. Fat distribution in males did not change.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Illinois. It was published online ahead of print on June 30, 2021 in The Journal of Nutrition.
