nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

You won't find free phytates in foods, they're already bound to minerals. It's probably pointless to soak nuts if they're already roasted.

Red Palm oil is high in Vitamin E. Papaya provides 11 % of daily Vitamin E. Paprika is another source. Pickles green olives is a source of Vitamin E which can be used with salads
