Avocadoes are a source of healthy fats. Eating an avocado daily is healthy. But it alone does not help to gain weight.
Eating banana with milk in the morning helps to gain weight.
Eat healthy food.

Avocado is a fruit which is highly effective to cure Obesity. It is not used to gain weight. Although, its name is butter fruit, but its action is not that of a butter at all.
And, yes it improves the digestion.
It has soluble fibres and oleic acid which help you to feel full. This makes it a highly effective hunger squasher. It is known to reduce bad cholesterol and thus reduces the risk of a Heart Disorder.

Baldness, Cancer, Obesity, Aging, Frizzy Hair, Dandruff, Menstrual Disorders, Dysentery, Diarrhea, Caries, Scroll up to check the other diseases it cures. Be careful !! Only eat the best grade of avocados. Some varieties of Avocados available in the market may cause damage to Liver. The collagen in the fruit is known to get deposited in the Liver, which may cause Liver damage. However, if you eat 2 to 3 Avocados per week , it will protect and repair the damaged Liver. Buy only the finest kind of Avocados. Mexican Avocado should be strictly avoided.
