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.

I've heard some say nuts are the "junk food" of the paleo diet - any truth in that? And how often and how much nuts and berries do you eat?

Why stay away from nuts / fruits? Coconut / Macadamia / Olive / Avocado oil is the stuff. I eat fruit / nut fats everyday with most meals. If ice cream is your thing, learn how to make some legit ice cream. I like this graphic. (more)
