Avocados are the ideal healthy fat because they “keep you full by slowing down digestion,” Cording says. What’s more, the fruit is packed with potassium, which fights bloating, so all that hard work you’ve done on your abs will show. “Avocadoes have about 14 grams of healthy fat per half a fruit, so they’ll increase your post-snack satiation (meaning you’ll be likely to eat less at the next meal), and on top of its good-for-you fats, avocado consumption actually aids in the absorption of vital nutrients when eaten with other fruits and veggies,” Elkaim adds. Just be careful not to go overboard—even healthy foods can pack on the pounds if you’re not careful.
