while I'd be happier a little less fat, I don't need to 'lose,' per se.
I track (I've been sick for 3 days and haven't but my NORM is to track everything).
IMO, if you're interested in YOUR HEALTH (due to genetic issues or current medical reasons), you should track everything you eat. Everything. For one, I'll give you an example:
I just went to the doctor. Know what he asked, 'Do you have any idea of new foods or medications?'
Know what I said? 'I know exactly everything I've eaten. Here you go.'
It's FABULOUS for that! It's also fabulous for being mindful of what you're eating. It's not about good or bad or whatever. It's being 100% honest.
That must be important, I keep repeating it! But seriously, if I didn't 'report' that .25C of feta and it showed in my blood work? I need it tracked.
As for your choices, I'll say this: a whole avocado is a LOT of calories. I'm not poo-pooing that. I'm saying that's certainly A LOT. Bear it in mind! When you know you need more healthy fats, when you know you need a 'stick to your ribs,' it's a nice choice. Sweet potato is a LOT of calories. It's got some great nutrients.
I'm not trying to lose weight but I limit my intake of sweet potatoes and avocados. That doesn't mean that I don't eat them but I virtually never eat an entire avocado. I eat 1/4 or 1/2 (usually 1/2). When I eat a whole one, it's because I'm having trouble going poo and I want to grease up my guts. The sweet potato I limit simply due to calories BUT if I want a treat, sure!
I'm far from perfect! Don't get me wrong.
Note: when I use 1/2 avocado on my salad, that 'is' my dressing (I may add a tomato for acid/ taste!).
This is going to be a lot of experimentation. Don't be hungry, though. You won't need to be, just keep eating the GOOD choice foods!
