Interesting facts about food:
The truth about avocados :
Avocados are often mistakenly labelled as fattening and high in cholesterol. No type of fruit contains cholesterol, and this includes avocados. The only fruits that contain fat are avocados and olives, but their fat is mainly monounsaturated, which means they do not affect our cholesterol level. If you are trying to lose weight it pays to watch your avocado consumption because they contain 23% fat and have an energy value of 2050kJ (490 Cal) - and that's without the salad dressing. For most people, however, avocados are a good choice because they provide valuable dietary fibre and are a good source of vitamin C, E and B.Eating facts: Avocados do contain fats so be watchful consuming them.

Playing the percentages :
When buying juice it's wise to look at the label, because there are big differences in the proportion of fruit or vegetable juice in different brands. The words 'fruit juice' are a sure giveaway that there is little juice in the product, as is the phrase 'flavoured with natural juice'. Low percentage fruit drinks are mostly water and sugar, which increases the calorie content while depriving you of the nutrients and vitamins found in fruit. Calories from sugar are much more likely to be stored as fat than calories from sucrose, the compounds that give fruit a sweet flavour. Whether you choose pure fruit or fruit drinks you should be aware that these drinks are missing the fibre that fills you up when you eat fruit. This makes it easy to drink glass after glass and consume large amounts of calories without realising it.

Appetite and Exercise :
Competitive athletes in strenuous training often eat more than normal to compensate for their higher energy output, but there is no evidence to suggest that people who exercise at a moderate pace on a regular basis will experience any significant long term increases in appetite.
Even if you do find you get hungrier and eat more, regular exercise may offset the difference. Increased activity sets up metabolism and calorie burning and helps you become trimmer and fitter. Your weight might stay the same but you're building muscle and reducing body fat.
