Keto foods can be helpful in targeting visceral fat, also known as belly fat. The stomach area can be extremely hard to lose weight due to the amount of fat cells it contains. There are certain foods on the diet that can help target this area as well as boosting weight loss results.
Fat cells are very dense around the stomach and there is a high volume of them too. This makes it very hard to burn even when combined with exercise.
Therefore a keto diet may be able to help this because it puts your body into a state of ketosis.
Ketosis is a process that happens when your body doesn’t have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy.
Instead, it burns fat and makes things called ketones, which it can use for fuel.

Avocados are a great source of several vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and fibre.
Increasing a fibre intake can be beneficial for weight loss. This is because fibre helps suppress your appetite, meaning you are more likely to eat less calories throughout the day.
Both fibre and fat slow the release of food from your stomach.
Avocados are high in both fat and fibre, meaning they should have a strong effect on feelings of fullness.
