I moderately adapted to beans while I was veggie and vegan, but now whenever I try to eat them I get ridiculously gassy and bloated. I think if you grow up with them as a staple part of your diet (like in India) they're probably alright.
I can't class nuts in the same league at all. I know there's "science" that argues against them, blah-blah-blah, but when I eat them they do nothing but make me feel good. At one stage I was eating most of my daily calories from Brazil nuts and I felt pretty smashing. I stopped cos I was trying to drop down to a lower bodyfat % (didn't work!)
I KNEW it!!

In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
