I'm a nutritionist - these are the foods that work just like miracle weight loss jab Ozempic
When it comes to avocados, millennials may have actually got it right.
For the bright green fruit works in the same way as miracle weight loss jab Wegovy, according to one expert.
Semaglutide also branded as Ozempic hasushered in a new era in the war on obesity.
The treatment, loved by Hollywood, spurs weight loss by mimicking the actions of a hormone released in the gut after eating (GLP-1).
As well as telling the pancreas the make more insulin, GLP-1 hormone feeds back to the brain and makes us feel full.
As a result, semaglutide can stop users from over-eating.
However, it is not without side effects with users commonly complaining of nausea, constipation and diarrhoea after taking the medication.
Dr Emma Beckett, a senior lecturer in food science and human nutrition based at the University of Newcastle in Australia, said that certain foods 'can do the same thing without the side effects'.
Explaining her logic in The Conversation, she said: 'The nutrients that trigger GLP-1 secretion are macronutrients.'
