The researches have watched 26 overweight adults - people who ate half an avocado with their lunch remain full for the next three hours of the day.

'Avocados are a very popular and delicious fruit, and from the results of our study, may also be helpful for people who are looking to better manage their weight', study researcher Dr. Joan Sabate, a professor of nutrition at Loma Linda University School of Public Health, said in a statement.

'Satiety is an important factor in weight management, because people who feel satisfied are less likely to snack between meals. We also noted that though adding avocados increased participants' calorie and carbohydrate intake at lunch, there was no increase in blood sugar levels beyond what was observed after eating the standard lunch. This leads us to believe that avocados potential role in blood sugar management is worth further investigation', Sabate added.
