One more note on nuts (I promise it’s the last one)

Finally I decided to test it. I’ve been going by Dr. Greger’s advice that 1 tablespoon of nuts added to my salads would have no bad effect on weight. But I had stalled. And, to be honest, it never made sense to me. I’d seen his video and read his info about nuts in HNTD, but the calories from nuts just couldn’t magically disappear, could they?

Well I tried it and after losing weight my weight loss really stagnated for the past few weeks. I admit I was getting a bit frustrated – but I was staying the course!

Then I decided to just drop nuts altogether a few days ago and see what happens. I still add 1 teaspoon of flaxseed to each salad, usually 3 times a day.

The day after I completely stopped nuts my weight dropped 1.3 lb, The next day it dropped 0.9 lb. The next day it dropped another 0.4 lb. The day after that it dropped another 0.4 lb. Anyway, my weight today is 3 lb less than it was 1 week ago.

And all I changed was eliminating nuts from my diet.

So nuts to nuts for me.

And we now return you to your normal programming…

  1. Now that is really interesting. Clearly that was not all fat loss, so water must be lost as well. Still, down is down, and 3 days in a row leads one to think it is causation since nuts were the only variable in play.

    I have followed this nut experiment with interest, and have also affirmed my view that nuts are not magic calorie free thingies. I’ll give away my stash of nuts that are in the freezer, and I’ll still keep eating 1 Brazil nut a day for its selenium content.

    On a side note, I am starting a long fast tomorrow. Partially for fat loss, partially for autophagy, and partly to decrease my addiction to food as a fix and subsume that fix desire into another chosen area I have planned.
