Olive vs Avocado oil
Dear Diet Doc,

Can you please tell me whether it is better to use olive oil or avocado oil? Which would have the most kilojoules?
Thank you.

Dear Anne
All oils will provide 37 kJ per gram, so you can use either olive or avocado oil because both these oils are rich in monounsaturated healthy fats which protect the heart.
