What is the reason someone on carnivore diet would avoid avocado? Now,I get that it appears to be stupid question,let me explain.In my opinion,the true goal of carno diet is not to avoid eating plant food,the goal is being healthy.The carno diet tactic is to avoid all plant food,becose there are reasons to avoid them.
Fruits are sugary and vegetables have natural poisons and toxins in them to defent themself from animals.
Since 99.99% of fruit are full of sugar,and all vegetables have defensive molecules,it leads to conclusion to just make broadband plant food “ban” on carnivore diet.
But there is one plant food that is neither full of sugar,or anti vitamins and other chemical deterants.Avocado is very special becose its high fat,low carb fruit.Becose its fruit,there are no phytic acid,oxalate,phytoestrogens,sulphoraphane,digestive enzyme blockers,gluten… avocado wants the flesh of its fruit to be eaten by mammals,becose they spead its seed.
I just want to mention again how fantastic and unique is the fact that unlike almost all other fruits,avocado is low carb and high fat.No need to worry about insulin spikes,fattening,diabetes or fructose diarrhea.Also the type of fats inside avocado are good,unlike so many other plant oils,its low in polyunsaturated omega 6 fat that causes inflamation.Its also relatively low in fiber.
Avocado micronutrient profile is very impressive too,I think its gram for gram most nutrient dense plant food on this planet.Only thing that can match it on paper are veggies like kale or spinach.Problem with them however is that the high numbers are unreal,its a lie.Due to their extremly high anti nutrient content,the effective amount of minerals we get from them is much lower,in case of spinch and iron,up to 20 times less.
It can be overcome by cooking,but the reduction is not large and it destroys the heat sensitive vitamins.Avocado have no such issue,there are no anti nutrients and no cooking is needed,it can be eaten raw.
Its also delicious,in my opinion its the best tasting plant food.If I could eat only type of fruit for the rest of my life I would choose avocado.
So why are we,the carnivore diet people not eating it? Why not make it exception? I am on carno diet only 11 days,I was learning about this diet for same amount of time,so I am no expert.From what I saw,heard,and read,I didnt found single argument about why we should avoid avocado.Is there something I dont know about? Is there some study,or even n=1 report about avocado doing anything bad?
