This kind of thing crossed my mind several times before Julie. For example, if I had an avocado the night before and then knocked back some Datorade the next morning, would I be all messed up? Given that I had an overall low-fat diet (fat below ten percent of calories) I never had any problems, both from what my body told me and from what my glucose meter told me (I love being objective!). So given you eat low fat most of the time, if you have an avocado in the evening and then some sweet fruit the next morning, don't worry about it. There may still be some fat in your blood the next morning, but it's unlikely that it will cause any problems.
So have your avocado and your pineapple, and eat it too Julie! :)
you´re right bmoojeni, it takes about 2-3 hours to actually digest the avocado, but it stays much longer in your blood as we know, that´s what i was worrying about.
chris, thank you for your answer, so i´m not the only one who was wondering about that :)
apart from twice a week half an avocado, i´m not eating any fats!
i´ve had a spinach banana smoothie after weight training, and then later some pieces of avocado to get my proteins from spinach and a little fat for muscle building. so that´s ok with some fruit tomorrow morning, thanks again!!!
When i have avo,rarely these days,i will have an early dinner,around 6pm.then next day i wake at 5 running by 530 and eating breakfast at least 13-14 hours after my dinner,and still i can get a weird stomach if i ate too much avo(like i did last night) and deeply regret it lol...
Avo is around 70% fat,so it can cause issues with blood sugar when a fruit meal is eaten even the next day,which happened to me this morning.
Depends if your fit. Someone like me, I could eat avo and pineapple together and my body would pump it thru real quick.
Someone that needs to get fitter, well then they need to cut back on the fat and focus on eating so many fruit carbs that overt fats dont get a thought and the focus is just on carbing, sleeping and living with passion.
The fitter we are, the stronger our digestive muscles and system. The faster our lymph pumps fat thru. Getting fitter means fitter digestion as well.
okay fair point Harls.but even after many years of raw(before last year) i still had issue with too much avo,and i have always been fit,just have fairly sensitive gut.
I had 4600cals yesterday from delightfully juicy fruits and sweet fruits,and i still ate the avo and didn't feel as great,i know i should have eaten more sweet fruits instead,but it was a timely reminder ;)
i know these problems very well! i always had problems with my digestion, that´s why i want the be careful about when i eat some avocado. already as a child i suffered from MASSIVE bloating and gas which is aleady unusual, because children usually can deal with a lot more in digestion than grown ups. my problems only got better if i did strict food combining.
i don´t know, if you´re fitness in sports does have anything to do with that. for sure things are getting better with improved nutrition overall.
My issue with too much fat,stems from the colitis bowel i am healing from,too much fat and i suffer,big time.Even when i was healed on raw for all those years,i still felt my best on low fat rv.Durian however,is another matter,that i can digest so much better than avo,luckily cos i loves it ;)
Being fit enables me to digest things quickly,however i still feel an effect,not as much as if i were sedentary of course :)
i´ve got to say, i never "crave" avocados" at all, i just eat them every now and then because i think i should after heavy weight training. i´ve always heard that you need a little amount of good fats to build muscle.
