30 Bananas a Day!

So today ive eaten about 2700 cals and if i eat 1 avocado with that its 9.9% of fat. So its still in 10% range. I know people recommend rather 1/2 of avocado. but if i eat more calories, it seems that i can olso eat more fat? or...?

The avocado will not be the only source of fat in your diet. Remember that fruit has some fat, as well as greens.

So if you only ate low-fat fruit today, and no greens, your fat ratios will be in the 2-3%

If you ate low-fat fruit, plus green, your fat ratios will be in the 5-6&

If you ate low-fat fruit, plus green, plus 1 whole avocado: 15% fat


i know that fruits and greens have fat too. but if i count my calories (i use caloriecount.com) then 2700 cals with that 1 avocado included means its 9.9% of fat, not 15%.

The avocado is fine

but can i eat 1 avocado every day, if i still get it under 10% (meaning i have to eat more cals to get that)? or if not, then why not? :P i think it was in Grahams book (red it while ago so maybe im not correct) that 10% of fat in a day would mean about 1/2 avocado OR 1 small handful of nuts OR 1 tbs oil. But if i eat for example 2700 cals a day it seems that i can eat 1 whole avocado and still get fat in 10% range or under?

Also, Dr Graham said keep fat to 10% over time, not necessarily daily.

Does Graham say half an avocado? If he does it might be because he's keeping in mind less daily calories than what's recommended here? I just remember reading his section on calculating how many calories you need and for me since I'm rather light, it was 2000 cals or less even with some exercise, so for that half an avocado would do.

So following Graham's caloric recommendations, half an avocado is plenty, following the caloric recommendations from this website, one whole avocado would seem fine, if all this makes any sense.

Also might be that people recommend half an avocado because a lot of people seem to feel better following a 90/5/5 diet rather than 80/10/10.
