    far off

    I read an article and do not understand the meaning of "isnt too far off from the hype" in the following setence .

    "Youve probably seen avocados being touted as a heart-healthy superfood in recent years. Realistically, the truth isnt too far off from the hype."

    Thank you very much for your useful help and time.

    Best regards,

    Yu

    May I ask you : can I say " isn't too far from the hype " instead of " isn't too far off from the hype " ?

    Thanks
