Fuller fat

Avocados, nuts and olive oil are more filling than other foods because their unsaturateg fats trigger the release of a compound called oleoylethanolamide (OEA) in the small intestine. This activates a brain circuit that makes us feel more satisfied for longer.*

However good this fat may be, doctors still say to remember it is fat and only 70 calories a day should be eaten of it.

According to researchers at the University of California at Irvine.
