    too much fat??

    Shop Now
    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.

    would be ok in a day?

    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.

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