  • too much fat??

    Is 150 grams a day too much fat. Especially coming mostly from nuts (not including peanuts).
    Sources include: hazelnuts, macadamias, flax, chia, and hemp seeds.

    Nuts are really not the best choice for a main source of fats or calories for that matter. They are not something our bodies are designed to eat in mass quantities.

              If I eat to many nuts I start to feel the effects as in a mild allergic reaction(caughing and wheezing if I eat a bunch on subsequent days). It is easier to eat animal fats and coconut oils anyway.
              Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.

                This. Coconut & avocados are delicious.

                  You don't need nuts. Get fats from my previous list.

                      It depends on your goals - but many people here get 40-60% of their total calories in the form of fat -some are a bit lower some are higher.

                      Great choices for fats include fatty cuts of meat, salmon, butter (or ghee), coconut oil, avocados, olive oil, lard, and beef tallow.

                      Nuts have a less than ideal fatty acid breakdown and should not be used as a primary source of fuel.
                      Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

                        You don't need them. If you must have them, use them more as condiments.

                          Any opinions on this article. It's saying high fats are linked to color cancers etc

                          Refined carbohydrates and excess fats may drive the insulin gene in colon cells to promote cancer : Disease Proof

                            There's so much bad science in there I literally don't know where to start.

                              Most nuts are very high in Omega-6 and very low in Omega-3. So consuming lots of nuts will put this ratio out of balance.
