Avocados have typically been thought of as a great fat to eat as well as a good source of antioxidants. Avocados however aren’t that great when compared to other fruits. Avocados contain a lot of fat, and while it is the healthy fat you still need to pair it with dark, leafy vegetables to get the most out of it nutritionally. Finally, avocados are heavy in Vitamin K which is fat soluble but also interferes with Coumadin which is a blood thinner.
