Whenever I eat dried cranberries (raisins and berries too...) I get bad gas and some bloating. Same thing happens when I eat nuts such as almonds, walnuts etc... The problem is, without nuts and dried fruit, my snack options are so limited and... (more)
So I know there are lots of threads on here wondering why people must cut out nuts to lose weight (myself included). For example why I could lose weight on a tracked 1200 calorie a day diet for a week, and then the next week eat 1200 calories but... (more)
I'm all for avoiding PUFA's, but I have yet to see evidence that they slow the metabolism down in humans. Perhaps they do in very specific contexts (explaining your experience) but not for the average person.
Do you think carbs and fats together is a problem? And what is your take on nuts and acne? I really have experimented with diets in curing my acne. I mean I think the high fat diet only works if you are super strict and I just don't think we are... (more)
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... (more)
I have been hacking away at this problem for a long time, and I have not yet gotten satisfactory insight. Here are the "answers" I've gotten that are not satisfactory: "Just don't buy them." - That's a good way to not eat nuts, but it doesn't... (more)
Hi , it's fall and as I looked out my window this morning I saw some squirrels eating nuts falling from an acorn tree in my backyard and I was like Eureka. I've usually been normal weight even though I've seen myself as thin (male). About 8... (more)
To what extent are vegetables overrated? Have we been brainwashed by the marketing of vegetables/fruits just as much as by anti-cholesterol/saturated fat propaganda? When we read nutritional profiles, how do we know that the figures for... (more)
Hi! My husband and I are on day three of our thirty day paleo challenge. I'm finding that many websites contradict one another, and would like to know what others think/practice. Please excuse my ignorance- healthy and mindful eating is very new... (more)
If I have a long history of nut butter binges (mostly peanut and almond), should I focus on trying to restore a better 3:6 ratio and avoid nuts for a while?
Hi, The following is an "answer" I posted on another thread, but I'm reposting it as a question because a) No one's noticing it on the other thread ( "Help! Can???t stop picking on nuts / nut butters!" ) and b) it seems like a relatively new... (more)
Hi. I just saw that you are 23 and underweight. Nuts are super calorie dense, so my guess is that you are just craving the calories. I also find it odd that you are fine with avocado but find nuts inflammatory and yet are not allergic to them.... (more)
I usually enjoy raw almonds, but last night chose to eat roasted ones. I feel terrible, my stomach hurts, I feel fat and just awful. Does anyone have an opinion on whether nuts should even be included in the diet? Should I only eat raw nuts, or no... (more)
Here is my issue with nuts and nut butters. While almonds and some others can be extremely healthy, for me it is very easy to overconsume them. I could take down a whole jar of sunflower seed butter or almond butter in a single sitting (on the... (more)
In terms of boosting HDL cholesterol and protecting the heart, are there any differences between raw macadamias and roasted? Are the monounsaturated fats damaged by the roasting process? Also, macadamia's contain saturated fats - anyone know... (more)
All the time I consume either creamed coconut or nuts I get a an empty feeling in my stomach like an hour after. I don't feel week, my energy levels are quite good, but my stomach just feels empty. What would cause this?
Could it be due to the fiber content? Nuts and creamed coconut are both faily high in insoluble fiber. I don't have a theory as to why this would make you feel hungry. Just an observation.
I want to make crispy almonds, etc like Sally Fallon recommends and I need a way to roast the nuts overnight at temps under 150 degrees. Has anyone figured out how to turn the oven on and leave it on?
So, since starting paleo ( bout 6 weeks ago) I thought I'd lean out way more than I have. I Was pretty light on carbs, no dairy, no processed food pre paleo. I feel like I'm holding a ton of water. I work out regularly ( not CF yet), drink lots of... (more)
It seems to be a reoccuring pattern on these boards, people who have to completely avoid nuts and nut butters (myself included), because they trigger an instant binge. Does anyone have any literature on why nuts have this magical power to induce... (more)
Since going paleo about 5 weeks ago.. I have found myself endlessly picking and munching on nuts/ nut butters. ( macadamias, almond butter, almonds, hazelnuts). I have always loved them but seems since going paleo I eat them with reckless... (more)
Hi guys, I'm allergic to nuts, egg and fruit. Am I wasting my time attempting a Paleo diet?? I keep looking at recipes and everything is using everything I can't have. Any advice would be helpful. I'm trying to make a healthy turn in my life.
I may have overplayed it with the title a bit, but I think the most dramatic hack would probably solve over 90% of the problems people face in these forums. The paleo diet is usually presented with foods that can be eaten ad libitum, like meat,... (more)
I grab a handful of almonds, I decide to grab another, and another, and another...15 minutes later i'm eating 3 bananas and 2 sweet potatoes and 5 eggs.... Does anybody else have this same experience with nuts or is it just me?
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)
Hey Guys, I have had major digestive issues, and some other nonsense, so I am considering trialling robb wolfs auto-immune protocol, or an approximation of it. Because of my gut issues, my list of foods is already somewhat limited, so while... (more)
My family is going paleo!!! My youngest child has severe dairy allergies and also is allergic to tree nuts and peanuts. I am having trouble finding a transitional breakfast to ease my kiddos out of granola and oatmeal for breakfast that don't... (more)
