Some nutrition experts call the avocado a superfood, but it is high in calories and fat. Consume avocados in moderation.
One-half of an avocado has 160 calories, 2g of protein, 8.5g of carbohydrates, and 14.7g of fat. It also contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients.
A whole avocado provides about 17 grams of carbohydrate and 13.4 grams of fiber. There is very little sugar in an avocado.
A whole avocado provides 30 grams of fat, 4.2 grams of saturated fat, almost 20 grams of monounsaturated fat, and 3.6 grams of polyunsaturated fat. These fats may help lower LDL cholesterol.
A few slices of avocado won't provide substantial vitamins or minerals, but a whole avocado is a good source.
The number of calories in an avocado depends on its size. A medium-sized avocado has about 200 calories, while a large avocado has about 300 calories.
