    How Many Servings of Nuts Do You Eat Per Day On Average?

    Another food question for all of you...

    I LOVE nuts and could eat several servings a day if they were not so high on omega 6's. But they are so I limit my intake to 1-2 servings a day. This includes nut betters but DOES NOT include COCONUT. Coconut is unique and I will eat as much coconut as my taste buds desire on any given day.

    So, on average, how many SERVINGS of nuts do you eat per day?

    1 serving is 1 oz. of nuts or 2 tbsp of nut butters - just give an estimate.

    Thanks and grok on!

    I probably eat 4 servings per week. I like them, but I don't want to go overboard. I've been sticking to macadamia nuts lately, both because I love them and because they have lower O6 levels than most. I can't have any nut butter in the house or I'll eat it even when I'm not hungry. =[

    Nuts are my go to snack. I don't know what an ounce of nuts looks like. I keep them in a candy dish in the dining room and eat three to five small 'handfuls' a day. That probably comes to 30-50 nuts per day, mostly almonds. It's probably too much, but I am still beating a chips addiction and nuts are the closest thing in this diet. We ran out last weekend and didn't replace them until yesterday, and I think I a may be better off without them. I do tend to stare into the fridge and end up eating nothing when there isn't a pile of nuts handy.

    I eat a single serving of walnuts, and a single serving of almond butter each day!

    One serving a week, tops. I just don't dig them that much, especially now that I made a rule in my house that I can only buy nuts with shells on- lol.

    i eat maybe 2 servings a week, a mix of pecans and walnuts with some berries in whipped cream or pine nuts in a batch of sauteed veggies.

    Zero.

    Nuts don't play nice with my digestive system. Well, I lied. Most nuts don't sit well, but it's just easier to give them all up.

    I probably eat 1 - 2 servings a day of almonds or walnuts. I keep them at work for when I need a snack. I have almond butter at home, too, for a snack. However, I find with almond butter I could just sit and eat the entire jar - it's that good. But I try to be good and only have a serving or two a day on weekends. During the week, I'm pretty good about not digging in, but it's there if I need a quick snack.
