    Our obsession with avocado shows no bounds; whether it's slathered on toast or mashed into guacamole, our attitude is generally the more the better. However, too much of a good thing could actually be bad for us, according to a registered dietician. Although they're packed with healthy fats, fibre and protein, that doesn't mean we can eat as many avocados as we like. In fact, the proper serving should actually just be around one quarter of an avocado, rather than the half or even entire avocado many of us could easily consume in one sitting. As Michelle Alley, a nutritionist

    If you can't start your day without a morning caffeine fix and are such a regular at your local coffee shop that you're on first-name terms with the barista, you may benefit from cutting out - or at least cutting down on - your coffee consumption.

So by eliminating that daily latte
