Are avocados fattening?
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:12:29 PM »
While growing up, I avoided this fruit as much as I could. Everyone in the household thought I was nuts but when I started eating them, I've never looked back.

A common myth out there is that eating them could lead to weight gain. This is not true at all. Despite being a high calorie food, almost two thirds of the calories in avocados come from healthy monounsaturated fats.


So ladies and gentlemen, eat as many of these as you can, or won't you?

I love avocados!  I like them in my sandwiches, salads, just on the side of the plate, and even by themselves.  I am so glad that there are health benefits in eating them.  If there weren't, I'd be in big trouble!

I'm actively trying to lose weight, so I don't believe I'll partake in any although I love guacamole dip.   I happily take an omega-3, fish oil supplement for my healthy fats.  I like to use avocado oil on my hair though.  It leaves it shiny and less frizzy.

I hate it when people try to tell me that avocados aren't good for you! Sometimes people have a hard time understanding that there are good fats out there. I used to eat them all the time when I was out in California. I can't tell you how much I miss having perfect avocados available to me all the time - and for amazing prices too!

I grew up with the belief that avocados are healthy and the oil in them is good for you. Of course, as with most other foods, too much of them could be fattening or unhealthy for you.

That makes the two of us. It is interesting that I am reading this thread with an avocado as part of my dinner's menu. I have never heard of anything like too much of avocados being unhealthy?

I just recently found this out myself.  I didn't eat as many of those avocados as I could at, but nothing is holding me back now?  I could eat many and I love guacamole!
