Hm .

With two thirds of our population , either overweight or obese , the emphasis tends to be on what you should not eat .

However , when it comes to losing weight , instead ask yourself what should I eat ?

Obesity is a huge problem in America .

It increases one's risk of heart disease , diabetes , arthritis , high blood pressure , cancer .

And the list goes on .

So let's focus on two foods that we should eat if we want to lose weight .

Avocados and almonds .

Researchers added half of an avocado to the subject's lunch meals and found that they felt fuller over a longer period of time and had less of a desire to eat .

Not only that , but their insulin levels decreased after the meal .

A lot of people think that because avocados are high in fat that they are fattening , but that is not necessarily .

So because higher fat foods help you feel full .

You see avocados contain mono and saturated fat .

It's a healthy type of fat that our bodies need to reduce the LDLs .

That's the bad cholesterol in our blood .

This fruit also contains 20 vitamins and minerals and almonds have a similar effect .

The high protein , high fat and high fiber content in these nuts help us feel more full .

In fact , the researcher found in a weight control program that those who ate almonds as a snack had longer and a better sustained weight reduction than those in the popcorn group .

The study also found that people do not gain weight by eating a handful of almonds every day , but more than losing weight .

It's what these foods do to help combat the negative health effects of obesity .

So how should we incorporate avocados and almonds into our daily diet ?

My recommendation would be about half an avocado .

So to substitute that too for maybe some of the butter or the high fat cheese that is usually consumed at meal times and for almonds , eat a handful a day , you can also substitute it for saturated fats like cheese and meat for added health benefits .

And that liven up your diet by being creative with these foods .

For example , instead of putting butter on your toast , top it with almond butter or avocado , you can even make a delicious avocado shake with almond milk for a healthier take on dessert , make chocolate pudding with avocado instead of the dairy , then top it with slivered almonds .

There's your tip for the day on how you can live healthier longer .
