CW: discussion of body weight change in the context of nutrition research.
This week, while skimming the weekly newsletter I get on new nutrition and metabolic research on body weight, the following caught my eye:

Catchy, huh? Could avocado have replaced the egg as the center of nutritional controversy? Turns out, people are have many questions about avocados.
