    How much avocado is too much?

    I'm mildly obsessed with avocados. I eat at least a half of an avocado a day, whether it's on toast, in a smoothie, part of a salad, etc. I know that they are 'healthy' fats, but I also know that you can still overdo it.

Possible predisposing factors?: removal of four feet of small intestine apx 17yrs ago due to acute scar tissue over growth + diet of vegetarian, apx 6months ago, with exception of small amounts of cream in store bought coffees. I'm not writing this to boast, I really would like an opinion as to why I'm all of a sudden gaining weight....
