    I have no problem with Almonds. I have about 2 oz daily, blended in the morning shake along other fruits.


    This is my "recovery drink" after a bike ride I do every morning, really early.

    Brazil nuts are evil.

    1) because they taste good

    2) because they make me feel like I'm gonna hurl

    3) because I keep eating them.

    @nosalad: hmm. Your nuts must have been laced with addictive drugs. They were in my almonds too


    As Mark writes,

    "The offending characters, it seems, are lectins, phytates, and enzyme inhibitors, notorious little “anti-nutrients” that put some people’s stomachs through the ringer. Even if you don’t show obvious symptoms, many argue, you may be compromising nutritional uptake by eating raw nuts."

    They are convenient, but tend to hinder fat loss and cause indigestion.
