Avocado is one of the protagonists of a healthy diet thanks to its many benefits for the body and health. However, moderation and variety are the keys to healthy eating, and abusing avocado can affect health.

The excessive consumption of food as good as avocado can have negative consequences for health, since “the substances it contains can be harmful if the recommended dose is exceeded,” warn Health Experts.

According to experts, eating too much avocado can cause the following problems:

Weight gain: A single avocado can contain up to 300 calories and 25 grams of fat, even if they are healthy.

Damage to the liver: While moderate consumption of avocado helps protect the liver, its excess can cause fatty liver as Avocado contains anethole and estragole, two substances highly related to different liver diseases.

Nutrient deficiency: Despite having a large amount and variety of nutrients, it does not contain all of them, for this reason it is a mistake to eat only avocado, as it should be seen as an important part of a balanced diet and not as a complete food.

Allergy risk: Although it is not very common, there are cases in which excessive consumption of avocado can cause people to develop allergies, which can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain or itching in the mouth and throat.

Difficulties in digestion: The carbohydrates present in avocado are of the FODMAP type, which are difficult to digest, for this reason an excess of these can cause constipation, gas or abdominal pain.

In addition to its high nutritional value, avocado is characterized by its versatility, which makes it an ideal ingredient to prepare a huge variety of recipes, among which salty and sweet recipes can be named.

The best way to eat avocado is with a minimum amount of salt, so as not to exceed the sodium levels in the body, however, avocado is the base of other recipes such as guacamoles, sauces, purees, or salads.
