Hi all,
May as well settle in if this is going to be our 'home' for the forseable future.

1lb on over the weekend, which actually collates to at least 3 as I should have been down 2!

Going on my new bike down to the post office in the next village instead of walking to the nearest one.

I may be gone some time!!!!!

Charles, you've hung out in Juarez long enough, now, that you should be immune to the "revenge" ;-).

Avocados are almost all fat Charles. So they are high calorie. I don't think it was the tortillas! :-) They are a monounsaturated fat so they are good for you and can help you lose weight if you eat small amounts. I add a quarter of a med avocado to a great deal of my meals.

But if you eat a lot then you'll consume too many calories. And that is likely your gain. Plus many authentic flour tortillas are made with lard but I assume as my vegan dude you know to ask that they aren't prior to consuming that so I'm thinking it was the avocados

Bought a membership at the gym, three weeks ago, just went today for the first time in over a year, feeling pretty smug now. Tomorrow everything will hurt.

Chandler says:
All monunsaturated fats have been shown to HELP you lose weight so you should have a small amount in each meal, but you still need to be aware of the calorie count of each meal with them in it (olives, olive oil, avocado oil, avocados, canola to some degree, nuts, sesame oil, peanut oil)

I doubt I go a day without eating a half an avocado. It's one of my favorite flavors. But yeah, anything with lots of fat has lots of calories. You have about 306 calories in one of the smaller avocados so if you ate a whole avocado that would be an entire meal worth of calories without the calories of the chips or tortillas or whatever else you eat with it...easy to do if you eat guacamole.

Incidentally, Haas avocados have far more calories than Florida or Mexico avocados. For reals. That's why they taste better!

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 14, 2012 10:47:43 AM PDT
so like, mixing up a bowl of guacamole, with, say, three avocados, not a good idea?

Maybe, but instead of immediately spreading it onto tortillas maybe you should spread it out over about three months.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 14, 2012 11:35:19 AM PDT
how about, like, sitting on the couch with it and a copy of Ulysses (Gabler Edition)?

sounds like an exercise plan!

Sounds like a day in paradise, Charles. For you, of course. For you. Enjoy.

thanks!

Reading Ulysses would be an exercize plan for the brain, all right. All while those avocadoes are lowering your cholesterol and delighting your taste buds. And don't forget to grow a little tree from the seed. Just poke some toothpicks into it and set it about half-submerged in water.

Posted on Apr 14, 2012 6:50:40 PM PDT
Every time I've tried to grow the seed, nothing happens.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 15, 2012 12:26:28 AM PDT
Charles I can't remember if I asked you this but did you ever see the Ulysses adaptation - the movie? I might find that more enjoyable to watch. It is on my Netflix list.

Maybe you didn't have enough water on the pit or maybe it
was upside down?

What's your take on smoked mackeral? I love it but all the colour codes on it are red: calories, fats, sat fats. Is that just because of the Omega wotnot or should I just stick to my tuna in spring water?

Posted on Apr 15, 2012 5:47:56 AM PDT
Chandler says:
yes, for those who eat fish, mackeral is an excellent choice: those are good fats...they are full of omega 3s. Canned tuna actually has the good fats removed so if you choose to eat tuna then I would cook your own when possible. Still, it's a lean protein so in calorie counting tinned tuna is lean...but if you are choosing fish, one high in omega 3s like mackerel once per week is a good choice.
