I have not issues with eating avocados, they taste like used motor oil and never pass my lips so no problems there. Yeah restaurant home fries tend to be what twig my inners the most. I normally skip them but I was tired and hungry and I do so love them.... yeah.

It is a sign you're unhealthy if you have issues with carbs. If I felt like I was going to die every time I ate saturated fat I would definitely think something was wrong with me and work to correct the issue instead of sweeping it under the rug at the expense of my well being. Yes, long term exclusion of carbohydrates is harmful. No, some people aren't just biologically programmed to "run on fat". Your biological makeup is the same as mine. I thrive on carbs because glucose is the preferential fuel for your body, above all, this is why it will even attempt to get glucose at the expense of your health by converting bodily tissues into glucose(which is what you're doing)
Oh well, Choco is right in that everyone is stubborn, myself included. Carb debates are starting to get a little boring, hence why I was staying out of this one, but there is just something wrong with the low carb mentality that should be changed. Say you just want to a bunch of fat for your preference, don't try to pretend it's more healthy for you to do so.

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Sorry Warmbear to continue to derail your thread.
I haven't a clue why certain foods bother anyone. Scallops make me retch, but other than that I've been blessed with a gut of steel. Some green veggies that I like give me gas, but no pain, and I'd just avoid them if I were having an overnight guest. heh. If it's something that's interfering with your enjoyment of food, maybe under doctor/dietician/self supervision, you could try an elimination diet to see if it's a class of foods, and whether or not some kind of healing needs to take place.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
