Nuts: high in omega 6's (which increase inflammation), are full of carbs, and highly concentrated calories.
Dairy: is insulinogenic, if it's not grassfed/organic it's full of pesticides and hormones, again high sugar/carb content and concentrated calories (but Fage is SO good!)
Fruit is fructose in a convenient package.
I've given up all three and don't miss them much at all... I miss dairy for the convenience, but I'm finding some raw/grassfed/organic cheese (for when I finish my whole 30) and lots of coconut products to use in cooking, etc.
I haven't noticed any weight loss, but I've noticed my gut is happier without dairy.
I dunno, I've noticed when tracking my intake that it was really hard to get out of the "sweet spot" while still eating nuts and dairy. I guess that it is possible to go overboard, but I've found that it's really hard. Nut and dairy intake hasn't really affected my weight loss or health that much, but I might just be lucky. I started seeing better gains when cutting back on fruit, though, but even then I haven't cut them completely.
I had all three in moderation & meticulously measured out in my meal plan ... 1oz cheese * 1oz nuts * 70g carbs total per day as part of a 1350 calories meal plan. When I asked on this forum for help/suggestions why I wasn't losing people attacked the fruit, dairy, & nuts even though they were in moderation & Mark's Carb Curev says 50-100g of carbs is "effortless" weight loss. So I was just curious what I didn't know about dairy & nuts that caused the very strong adversity to me having small amounts of fruit, dairy, & nuts in my plan...
