TX, keep in mind avocados are natural foods. They are so good for your skin, besides being tasty! Much better to eat a half each day than eat the same amount of fat grams from something like french fries.

Excellent advice! Trade the fries, dougnuts, candy, or other high fat food for half an avocado at least every other day if you can't do it every day. You'll be further ahead.

I wish I could eat avocados every day!! They are still rather expensive here. Fat from avocado is one of those particular fats I wouldn't be concerned about too much, along with extra virgine olive oil and that from salmon.

Actually I stopped overly being caught up with fat intake since I have been in Italy. I no longer consume anything particularly "low fat" or "fat free" (milk included, once I realised whole milk taste so much better, I never went back to part skim!!), I eat just as much if not more, just concentrating more on freshness and quality, while maintaining my activity for physical fitness.
It's been more than 3 years this way and I am fitter and leaner than ever.

I love your philosophy! I'm trying to incorporate more of the "real thing" into my diet at the moment, especially dairy products. I'm still a bit scared that they'll make me fat(ter than I already am) but I'm working my way out of it!
