How Long Will The Fat From An Avocado Stay In Your Blood Stream, And Will It Cause Issues?

Amy's Question: If one fourth to one avocado was eaten at the end of day in a big salad, would the fat from the avocado still be in the blood the next day?

If so, and if fruit were eaten in the morning, might the fat trap the sugar and cause insulin and prediabetes issues?

Do you know how long the fat stays in the blood stream after ingestion of one fourth to one half avocado?


Andrew's Answer:

Hi Amy.

In a active, healthy person with good circulation, fat will generally exit the blood stream in about 48 hours.

Small amounts of periodically-consumed overt fats generally aren't going to cause you any blood sugar problems.

Even a day or two of high fat intake probably won't be an issue.

In my own tests, it's only when my fat intake exceeds 15 percent for more than a few days that blood sugar starts to rise.

Take Out The Guess Work:

For the worried and curious who want to see how what they eat affects their blood sugar, I highly suggest you get a simple glucometer, which is what diabetics use to test themselves.

By using one, you can see how the fat you eat causes your blood sugar to spike, and exactly at what point that spike begins.
