I seem to get a lot of mixed information about avocados, but generally I've read that they are very healthy for you. I absolutely love them, but they do have carbs and they have ALOT of fat. However, I've read that something about the fat content in an avocado is different and it's actually "good" fat that you are consuming rather than bad. Really I'm just curious about this. I do admit I feel guilty eating them sometimes, just because I've been so trained to watch the content of everything I eat. Also, what is the difference between the carbs in a banana and the carbs in a slice of bread? I'm a type one diabetic, so I have to watch the carbs in everything I eat, and I count them on a regular basis. I still get the same amount of insulin for a 30 carbs, whether it be a piece of fruit or bread...but why does bread and those other "trigger foods" as my doctor calls them, lead to weight gain and the carbs in something like a banana does not? Just some things I've never been clear on! I've been trying to eat healthy, but taking so much insulin makes it very difficult to lose weight.
