Sean: I love avocados and I put them on everything. They’re healthy but I’ve heard even if they’re considered a healthy fat, I shouldn’t eat too much of them. How much is too much avocado? 

Megan: Yes, avocados are a healthy type of fat , plus they’re a good source of fiber and folate. Because they’re a monounsaturated type of fat, they help lower your bad (LDL) cholesterol and raise your good (HDL) cholesterol. Serving size would vary based upon personal needs and goals. Somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 for a medium sized or fist sized avocado would be about the right amount. Understand that 1/2 of a medium avocado contains 130 calories and 12 grams of fat. In general people usually have about 30-45 grams of fat per day (age, size, activity level all matter), so that could take up half of the recommended daily total right there. You have to consider what other fats you are consuming in the day and plan accordingly. Clearly, having the whole avocado wouldn’t be ideal, so if you are having it a couple times a day, you may be having too much when it comes to the total amount. A little here and there adds up, so be mindful of the whole day, not just that one snack or meal.
