I think I'm addicted to avocados.
I find myself craving this delicious fruit practically all of the time. Mmmm.. mmm.. mmm.. they are just soooo goood!
I'm hooked! Is this healthy?? Should I be concerned?? :eek: :p :D

Avocados are delicious indeed!!!
Depends on who you talk to as to how many one should eat because of the high-fat content. Me personally, I try to limit them to keep my fat intake low but when I was first starting out on RAW I devoured them... Certainly, they were a comfort food to me because of the numbing effect caused by the high fat. Plus, they taste great straight up!

I love avocados and eat about 1 or 2 a day. I have no medical background. However, I do not recall from any research anything to be concerned about.

Oh boy, do I understand your love! :) I can't get enough avocado's. When I was first raw I could put down 6-8 a day!! :eek: (I was using 2 per salad and just eating salad all day!)
Anyway, I felt like I was binging, so I cut down and I usually have 1 a day now. If you are just starting out, I suggest you eat until your heart's content! Even eating all those avo's, I didn't gain weight...just didn't lose.
Mmmm, now you have me craving Alissa's avo/spinach dip! :p
I am a avocado LOVER and not afraid of fats...so I am PRO AVO!!
I say you will know when it is time to cut back--I did. I still eat a lot of it daily b/c they have so many good nutrients and vitamins it is worth it to me:)

rawmommie, i have yet to try alissa's avo-spinach dip, but i bet it's incredible! hmm... that will have to be next on my list to make.. thanks for the heads up :)

Hey, I'm a treehugger too! :D
The dip is amazing. I have SAD friends and family OOOH-ING and AH-ING over it every time I make it! Mmmmm.
Your hair and skin will look amazing eating 2 avo's a day too!!! :)

Hey, I'm a treehugger too! :D
We all are at heart ;)
Trees are amazing, and they should be hugged and worshipped as much as possible :D We would have a very hard time dwelling this earth if there weren't trees!
I gotta add my hair is SUPER SHINY lately.....and my skin is pretty soft too...though that is mostly Italian genetics from my mom....:)
Thanks for posting everyone!!:)

I don't care for avocados, so that leaves more for you. LOL
but I haven't heard anything negative about eating alot of them, except that they do have a lot of fat.
I personally don't worry much about restricting my raw foods, I just eat what I like, maybe after I've been raw a couple of years, I'll change, but I think eating what your body is telling you is the number one thing you can do for your health.
