Avocados won’t make you fat

Here’s a big myth debunked: for one, eating avocados regularly won’t make you fat. Yes, they are high in fat, but it’s monounsaturated fat, which is the “good fat” that helps lower cholesterol – same goes for olive oil, which is a major element of the Mediterranean diet, which we’ve all heard is one of the healthiest diets in the world! 

“The monounsaturated fats in avocados are what give it the creamy texture that make it such a good replacement for butter, margarine or mayonnaise,” says Michelle W. Book., the in-house nutritionist at the Canadian Health Food Association. “These fats are also an important cholesterol-free way to help your body absorb fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin D, A, E and K.”
