Avocados have suffered a bad reputation for their high fat content, but one fourth of a medium avocado contains only 81 calories and contributes a wealth of nutrients. Avocados are virtually the only fruit that has monounsaturated fat, plus it has a bonus of polyunsaturated fat. According to the American Heart Association, these fats help reduce blood cholesterol levels and decrease risk for heart disease.
