The Truth About Avocados
@Bookie7....It seems that you are not doing low carb so I will not bother you with how LCHF works or how to calculate net carbs versus carbs. There are, in fact, what are called healthy fats. Those include avocados as well as coconut oil and others. If you are doing low fat and/or low calorie, obviously you will need to limit your consumption according to the macros you have set for yourself. However, there are health benefits to eating them contrary to what some will tell you. **My two cents**

What does net- xxxx Kcal mean?
a calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree celcius.

1000 calories= 1 kcal (kilocalorie)= 1Calorie ( note the capital C)

When most people talk about Calories they are using Calories big C even if they type calories little c. What they mean is kilocalories. All food is in Calories.

So kcal =Calorie but since this C vs c thing is not well understood and some places just use kcal
