Nuts - overeating and bloating

Answered on August 19, 2014

Does anyone else find that you can't stop at just ONE nut? It's horrid. I just baked some almond flour crackers and I ate the ENTIRE BATCH within a few hours. It was 1.5 cups worth of almond flour and 0.5 cup of coconut, and now I just feel sick to the stomach.

Also, does eating too many nuts cause the stomach to be bloated? Right now I have this tummy that looks an awful lot like a beer belly and I think it's from eating so many nuts.

If you are looking to incorporate nuts into your diet without over-eating, avoid eating them on their own out of the bag and have them in salads instead. My recommendation: Flaked almonds go great with spinach leaves, beets and fennel.

I do this to, I start and I just can't stop eating them. I do the same with almond butter. I've decided to try and avoid them for awhile because I can't figure out how to integrate them moderately into my diet. I know this isn't a prime solution, but I thought I would give you my insight.

Good luck!

When I stated fasting with eat stop eat last Nov I had a serious problem with nuts. I would go to bed in pain so full and bloated. I just couldn't stop. I've never had an eating disorder but since I have cut out all nuts except hazelnuts and seeds which are sage from my scavenging hands as they're not that yummy, but I binge terribly now even though it's all healthy foods, something confess over me. I'm trying to control it by preparing meals the day in advance. I take magnesium suppleness and don't crave nuts anymore.

Yep I have a nut problem too. Way too easy to eat way too many of them.

I think that part of the reason I eat a lot of nuts is lack of magnesium and manganese. When I supplement those, I am better able to resist the nuts, which are high in those minerals.

I think a handful of nuts a week is probably a good amount of nuts to have. If you're having more than that, then I'd make some adjustments or stop buying them...

I'm the same way. I have 0 moderation with nuts. So I just avoid them 100%. And they also give me bloat - almonds are actually the worst. I find that cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, and Brazil nuts aren't nearly as bad for bloating.

Yes, the bloat is from the nuts.

It's probably from the nuts. When I started Paleo I made the mistake of subbing 'okay' desserts for the bad ones I used to eat. Overeating is overeating. If you can't cut them down, it might be best to cut them out.
