I want to share with you the most important reasons to eat avocados when you practice sports.
A whole, medium-size avocado (about fiveounces) has 226 caloriesand contains about three grams of protein and nine grams of fiber.
Avocados have more potassium than bananas. Potassium is a nutrient that helps maintain electrical gradients in the body’s cells and serves various important functions.
Fiber is another nutrient found in relatively large amounts in avocado. Fiber is indigestible plant matter that can contribute to weight loss, reduce blood sugar spikes and is strongly linked to a lower risk of many diseases.
Eating avocados can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Studies have shown that eating avocado or avocado oil with veggies can dramatically increase the amount of antioxidants you take in.
