The Hunger-Crushing Food That Might Be Missing from Your Lunch

Stop snack attacks by adding half a Hass avocado to your lunch.

When healthy, overweight adults added half an avocado to lunch, they had 40% less desire to snack during the next three hours, and felt 26% more satisfied, according to a new study.

“Avocados add volume, fiber, and monounsaturated fat, which promote feelings of fullness,” says the study’s Michelle Wien, Dr.P.H. “Adding half a Hass avocado [the dark, pebbly kind, higher in fat than the smooth, light- green variety] may be a simple strategy for diet-conscious people who eat large snacks.”
