I have major issues with almonds. I constantly crave them and if I start eating them I can't stop, I can go through a whole bag of raw almonds or an entire jar of almond butter in one sitting. I know I'm intolerant to them cause I almost always... (more)
There's been a couple of times that this has happened to me. I ate almonds and sunflower seeds last night and woke up throughout the night to vomit. I had muscle cramps and chills as well. Also experience bad burps. This has happened to... (more)
Okay so i'm new to the forum so hello! :) but here's my question. Is it possible to eat too many nuts (almonds) I realized I do eat a lot of almonds trying to get my calories filled in before bed by snacking on nuts usually about 3 servings so... (more)
I want to include almond butter for a tablespoon a day. I removed all nuts for the O6 content. I came across a comment in the paleosphere a whole ago about removing the clearer fat sitting atop almond butter containers. Any reason to believe... (more)
Does it have to do with the freshness of the almonds? Where they were grown? How they were grown? The type of almonds?
Does anyone know if the nutrients in nuts are bioavailable? Does roasting make them more so? According to the nutrient tracker I use i'm often low on vitamin E, magnesium & manganese, but a big handful of almonds helps to bump the RDA% of... (more)
Nuts require thorough mastication to be more digestible. Chew your food! If you really like almonds, and prefer to get E and such from almonds, then unroasted almond butter would probably be a good choice.
I often hear that walnuts are not paleo because of their high omega 6 content. Instead we should focus on macadamias and cashews. I see that the latter's omega6/3 ratio is better. But what is the evolutionary argument? Did Grok not eat all nuts?... (more)
I love nuts. They are filling, crunchy, tasty and just plain different than most things I eat while on a strict Paleo diet. Which types are the best? Currently I eat about a cup of either marcoa almonda, walnuts or cashews about every other day.... (more)
I know that similar but not exact questions have been asked before, but I would like some fresh perspective. I average about a handful of almonds a day. Sometimes I feel like they make a good snack or can round out a meal nicely. The rest of my... (more)
So I'm curious about your experiences with almonds? I've been consuming about 2 ounces a day of whole natural almonds and am wondering if its the culprit for why my loss has stalled. Ive eliminated all dairy and saw that I was able to drop a few... (more)
I know I get stomach pains when I eat certain foods, and after paying attention to them for a while, I have noticed the worst offenders. However, I'm wondering if there is a common compound or "type" of foods that indicates something I should be... (more)
Why don't nutrition labels have reflect what's on the websites and peoples references like nutritiondata.self? For example the almonds I eat don't list anything about Vitamin E or Magnesium in them? According to... (more)
My work schedule requires me to lift between 530 and 8 pm but I don't eat after 10pm or so, so I like to eat at least something in the afternoon before training. Normally I eat an ounce or so of almonds and drink some BCAA closer to the gym... (more)
I have IC which is pretty much inflammation and thinning of the bladder lining. You wouldn't think it but the main cause for pain in those with IC is trigger foods. I still get the pain but refuse to pop pain pills everyday like i used to do. I've... (more)
Almonds are fine. Just get them as fresh as you can and enjoy.
So overeating almonds is bad because it'll throw your Omega 3 to 6 ratio off. And this is bad because consumption of too much Omega 6 is correlated with inflammation; yet almonds are an anti-inflammatory food source? And does anyone have a... (more)
I can't seem to find a clear, scientific answer on why to eat Raw nuts or to eat Roasted nuts. I realize each different type of nut may have a slightly different answer, but with regards to health, nutrient absorption and generally speaking from... (more)
To be honest, I don't usually care for nuts. But I found that the Trader Joe's unshelled pistachio nuts were to die for... almost literally... and I rampaged through the bag in no time flat. And ended up nearly destroying my gut (short term, I... (more)
Same here with pistachios. The problem is self-control. The solution is not buying them.
I don't hear much about cashews on the various paleo blogs I've looked at, and I'm wondering why. They're mighty tasty, and seem to stack up well against other nuts. For instance, compare 1 oz of cashews: Total Fat: 13.0g Saturated Fat:... (more)
I would roughly estimate that 1 out of every 50 almonds that I encounter is "bad." By this I mean that when I first bite into one, my mouth is immediately assaulted by a strong chemical taste, like amaretto gone wrong. The degree of badness... (more)
I've been paleo for several months now, but for the past few weeks I've been craving almonds and other nuts, but especially almonds. Does this indicate a possible deficiency in some nutrient? I have yet to run my diet through FitDay and see if... (more)
I was wondering if anyone eats almonds somewhat regularly and has had any kidney stones or has any information about a correlation with this because almonds have a large amount of oxalates and I have a theory that there could be a correlation.... (more)
Ok,so i'm new to this.Peanuts are worse than almonds because they have a higher amounts of lectins?Even roasted peanuts?Can you tell I don't want to give up my beloved peanut butter?No seriously I am trying to better understand the difference. (more)
