    what's your opinion on: avocados? nuts? olives? tofu? as fat sources?

    I like:
    avocados
    nuts
    olives
    tofu
    as fat sources.
    I'd rather "eat" (chew) my fat than "drink" (non-chew!) my fat, like olive oils and other fat "liquids."
    What is your opinion on getting the fat from the 4 above sources??

    Advocados - good
    Nuts - depends on the person
    Olives (Olive oil?) - good
    tofu - bad

    I think avocados and nuts are good, but very calorie dense so I rarely eat them. I like olives once in a while. Soy, I avoid as much as I possibly can (it's in friggen canned tuna and that pisses me off) and I'd rather eat my shoe than tofu.

    Acacados = very good fat, as long as you can fit the cals and carbs in your daily intake (especially if looking for weight loss)
    Nuts= good fat, but trigger food for MANY
    Olives= good if high quality, Olive Oil, I use as a third choice (coconut and butter first two)
    Soy= BAAADDDDD processed more than most CW junk food!

    Avocados - the best. very helpful when you find you haven't eaten enough calories for the day
    Olives - if from a jar watch the sodium, as an oil - great for dressings
    Nuts - I love them, but they don't love me so I tend to avoid them.
    Tofu - i used to eat it occasionally when I was a vegetarian, now I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.
    Cheers

    what is the point of tofu? surely it is a grain as it comes from soya bean? that makes it bad in my book

    I love avocados - such a powerhouse of nutrients!

    Nuts - i stick to macadamias where i can get them, cashews (not a nut i know!) if i can't

    Olives - yack...don't really enjoy them...too salty. Olive Oil on the other hand - rocks. but not for cooking.

    As others have said. Avacado>olives/oil>nuts>soy.

    Soy is poison.

    macadamias are the only nuts I eat. Avocados are generally pretty good. Try coconut, fatty meat, butter. It is not hard to get fat!!
