Are they really 400 cals per fruit? Kinda wondering, how long they last if cut, how much to eat. If I should put them on top of salad or how to mix them into my diet. I like them a lot, but they are pretty fat. I'm not dieting, but at the same time can't eat whatever I want. Am probably about a 2600 cals to maintain...

Your question was: Avocados during Nutrisystem?.

To make them last longer after they've been cut, leave the pit inside, wrap the avocado in plastic (or put it in a zip-style bag) and put it in the produce drawer of your fridge..

That nutrition info isn't very helpful without the serving size, though. It looks like that's for 100 grams...

I get the frozen ones from Schawan's food and use a spoon of them as my fat intake on "taco salads" that I make with the sloppy joe concoction or on the nacho crisps. I like the fact that I using the entire half of avocado before it goes bad...

Comment #2

I think I bought some frozen ones at Trader Joes too..

Comment #3

I know that you are in maintenance and not in in losing mode, but for your reference, the dietician recently posted in a thread titled "health drink" that 1/8 of an avocado would count as a fat serving...

That's why I said 400 calories for a whole one...

I found a cool website and information on avocado's when someone was asking about using it as a fat, I'll find that thread and come back!.

I was going to just try to cut and paste the parts about avocado, but this is a short thread and there is a lot of good info in it..

I've got some avocado purreed and frozen now and try to have it as one of my fats at least 5 times a week, I'm very sold on how good they are for you!.

There is a website link I posted for the best way to keep them in the frig and that website had a ton of other great suggestions for various things!.

Good luck, Jillian.

This does work! And I love avocados, eat them regularly. But I use just a few thin slices (probably less than an 1/8th of an avocado) at a time on my low-fat swiss and veggie sandwich...my favorite lunch!..

Comment #8

Avocado's come in all sizes. Right now the small Hass are the best buy here in CA.

If you aren't comfortable with the 1/8 of the fruit measurement, 28 grams or about 1 oz of avocado (without the skin) is a standard fat serving for Nutrisystem or about 45 calories.

When I put them on my salad, I add them after tossing/serving so it's all on the top. Don't know why but this makes it seem like there's more...

Comment #9

Good tips. I am still really trying to figure out how to have a normal diet, that is not a pain in the ass to prepare, but also keeps me full and thin. But maybe just a little less huge salad and basically eating addins all day long..

Had a lean half pound steak (on George with shrooms on the George, soaking up the juice, two small ears of corn, and a non-Poly sized salad. Felt very grownup and was only about 500 calories o/all...
