been trying to up my fat intake to about 65g (I weight 130) with eating eggs almonds and avacodos but am having a little trouble figuring out the nutritional data on large avacodos, I've been eating half of one of my lunch sandwich and the other half in my rice at dinner, estimating about 15g per half??

also what are some better lunch ideas than just sandwiches as I think this is slowing down my gains in terms of not consuming enough,

thanks 4343

A decent bar of chocolate has about 15g of fat in it and some carbs to boot. Very nice addition to a sandwich.

Weigh it using a Scale.

Also, eating a "large avocado" when in reality it should have been classed as a "medium" avocado will not ruin your diet.

I weight my MEDIUM avocados at around 60g per half, and that is after removing the skin and seed. 15g seems extremely low. Weight it if possible.

According to wolfram a 214g Avo has 29g fat (averaged over various different kinds of avos)

Your never going to know the exact nutrition content of everything, otherwise you could never go to a restaurant that doesn't list the nutrtional content, so stop being so anal

I'm not being anal, just trying to get a ballpark estimate if it was around 15g or around 30g
