    I'm on the cut diet, but paying $4/day for avocados isn't cool. What's the next closest (and hopefully cheaper) alternative to avocados?

    Holy shit. The cut diet requires that much avocado per day?

    Get the nutritional information and try to find something similar. It has heaps of monounsaturated fats and fiber I think, so nuts would be an alternative even though you're probably getting some already. Almond butter, tahini, something like that.

    Yeah it's crazy...27oz per day if you go with straight avocado. Some meals have avocado as optional (can be swapped with almondsand I don't eat any avocado during those meals, but it still amounts to 2 whole avocados a day.

    I'll probably go with nuts as you recommend Andrew. I'm already eating a lot of almonds and peanut butter, but I like both of them and they're relatively cheap, so I'll just up the amounts.

    Thanks.
