Bananas are one of the highest in sugar fruits out there! If you want a fruit smoothie in the AM, you should try using berries... And I would use EITHER milk OR yogurt, not both. The avocado is a great addition though!

Consume more nuts since they are high in monounsaturated fat. Have a go at dowsing olive oil on nourishments or cook with olive oil. It is additionally rich in monounsaturated unsaturated fats. The avocado is high in vitamin E so substitute these... (more)

I eat a decent amount of avocado, but I have seen a few times that you shouldn't eat too much of them because of the high Poly Unsaturated Fats? Are PUFA's good or bad? why? Thanks in advance!

Whole food PUFAs (i.e. avocados) are fine. There's more problems with refined and processed PUFAs (e.g. vegetable oil).

I'd say it's pretty hard to overdose on avocados. But what about the PUFAS?!?!?, you say? This ain't refined oxidized corn oil, folks. It's a raw, unprocessed, whole food.
