In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question about avocados can spike cholesterol. Avocados don’t have cholesterol and they are almost all fat. Most people that are having bad effects with cholesterol are consuming high carb diet because of the spike of insulin.

  1. Avos high in monounsaturated. We think that's good. But this is a worry (from pritikin website) :

    When scientists fed a monounsaturated fat–rich diet to monkeys for five years, the monkeys developed extensive atherosclerotic plaques in their coronary arteries. (1)

    As monkeys do, humans often do. Scientists have long known that monkeys eating diets high in fat and cholesterol develop atherosclerosis just as people do. What’s more, the blood lipids (blood cholesterol levels) of monkeys respond to different types of fats in much the same way that researchers have observed in people.

    What is surprising is that the one group that had significantly less atherosclerosis than the other two was the group with the lowest levels, by far, of HDL good cholesterol. It was the polyunsaturated-fat-rich group. “Most likely, this group’s higher intake of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids provided some protection against the blood cholesterol-raising effect of their high dietary cholesterol intake,” notes Dr. Tom Rifai, MD, FACP, Founder/CEO, Reality Meets Science® LLC and member of the Pritikin Scientific Advisory Board.

  2. Thank you Dr. Berg. I didn’t know these important facts actually. I eat one everyday as part of my Keto genetic lifestyle. Good to know !!

  3. I’m on the fence about net carbs vs total carbs, but I guess it varies from person to person. If you’re sick, you’d probably want to avoid net carbs and stick with total carbs.

    I’m just starting Keto and I found that two avocados were giving me trouble. I do one avocado and it works perfect for me.

  4. Avocados are void of cholesterol like the vid says..which is why I ditched em in favor of cholesterol rich animal fats and I feel so much better. Avocados are toxic, Google persin. The persin from the skin n seed leeches into the flesh. I think Latinos should only eat avocados as their bodies probably evolved to tolerate it throughout the millennias of consumption. Eat what your ancestors ate as your body has evolved

  5. Why you never mention the fact that it's INFLAMMATION that cause plaque to build in arteries, not cholesterol per se??

  6. Thanks for these videos. You have no idea how much they've helped me. I've wanted to take Ashwaghanda for my debilitating cortisol issues but a few months ago you personally responded to one of my comments warning me about a possible nightshade sensitivity. I'd love to hear more about this, and any other possible dangers of taking Ashwaghanda.

  7. Avocados are very filling. I try to eat at least one per day at lunch or dinner. Dr. Berg, thank you for this wonderful information.

  8. Thanks for all the information and advice. I eat an avocado for lunch almost every day, since going to a keto diet five months ago. Down to 200 lbs. from 265, 36 in waist from 42 ! Feeling great.
