Re: How much is too much avacado ?

You can never have too much avocado as far as I'm concerned, but if you feel like you might be eating too much, then dial it back. As long as everything goes down alright, I don't think you'll have a problem. 1 a day doesn't sound like too much to me, but I'm not expert. Maybe someone else can shed some more light on the subject.

If there's any number that is too much, 1 - 1 1/2 isn't it. You'd likely get tired of eating avocados before you hit whatever the "too much" number might be.

Avocado=monounsaturated fat=good.

You're only eating too many if they're creating a large enough caloric surplus to make you gain more weight than you want to gain.

Re: How much is too much avacado ?

I think you are eating far, far too many. You will die for sure if you continue at your current rate. That said, you don't want to offend your uncle by turning them down. I am willing, as a favor to you, my new best friend, to take some off of your hands and find some way of disposing of them. Let me know and I will give you my mailing address. No, no, don't thank me. I'm just generous that way.

Re: How much is too much avacado ?

1 and a half avacados in one sitting may be a tad on the heavy side, especially if it is only one part of your meal. Spread out through the day I can't see it being an issue.

Why would it be different? I am curious. I typically eat a lot, calorie wise, for lunch, and have a relatively tame dinner. I just listen to my body and eat accordingly. If anything, I would see fat and fiber from the avocado keeping hunger away longer. But please let me know about this spreading it out concept.
