    Who cares about calories? People who want to be successful with their diet.

    Anyways, read the first sentence of the post, OP clearly states that he peels them. Saying that avocados are bad for you is ridiculous, and as with anything else, it depends on the context. Of course, if he consumes 20 avocados per day, it would be detrimental. But 2-3 per day? There's nothing wrong with it.

    I'd prefer avocados over apples any day. They're creamy, smooth and delicious - and you can't really make guacamole out of apples.

    Apples are to fibre-y for me. Screw with my gut. On a comparison with texture (and calories kinda) banana would be more of a suitable comparison.
    Both are awesome, but apples suck. Unless baked.

    He said sometimes he peels them, and if you read what I quoted, he's saying he eats them with the peel like an apple.

    I don't care about calories, it wasn't even what I was talking about in the first place.

    Avocados are bad for you, simply because they contain so much unsaturated fat. They don't contain enough vitamin e to make them beneficial, despite the fact vitamin e saturates unsaturated fats.

    And I think this is total nonsense.

    I dance each day, on average, 3-6 hours (salsa, hip hop) + gym, so I'm not big on calorie counting

    Of course I peel them . I just meant I hold them and bite into them as if they were apples. Kind of messy... did it just a few times for fun.

    Doesn't sound like anyone here needs help eating their avos, but mixing with cocoa and some sweetener to make them into chocolate mousse is one interesting way I've had them. Another is mixed with tahini, vinegar salt and pepper in a kind of dip/spread sort of thing.
