Yes, gooey ripe avocados are an excellent sub for nut butter, and easier to digest for most. Another workable alternative is skinned and mashed sweet potato with added cocooil or tahini if you can do sesame My go to loaf recipe: 1/2 c Coconut... (more)

3-4 apples or 200 oz. of broccoli. If it's green then it'll be a ton! If it's a fruit then it will be much less. 3-4 cups of berries, 4-5 pears, etc. just mix and match until you have what will keep you full.

To continue leaning out and to also up your carbs you'll probably want to drop your total fat intake. Simply, replace some of your fat calories with carb calories and give that a shot. Works for me.

"High cholesterol" is a disease that only exists in a doctor's office. It's the only disease that requires you to have a doctor. Statins cause diabetes and psychological+hormonal issues.
