In the last year or so I think I've developed an almond addiction.  I like to eat about a jar of nut butter per week.  This would be a few tablespoons too much according to the portions but I am underweight.

O's can so easily develop addictions to a lot of things... ::) If it's just a few tbs too much per week & you are underweight what are your concerns - unless eating this you are eating more nuts in preference to diamond meats etc?

More beef protein and beef as breakfast will do you good.  We had another O who was under weight who started ERFYT and added much more Protein to her diet. Slowly but surely she added the pounds until she was no longer underweight!

keep a food diary, it helps to avoid addictions, plan what you eat on weekly basis, that might help.

From what I've read if you eat almonds that are not roasted they have extremely high levels of phytates.

I think phytates act as anti-nutrients and will inhibit vitamin and mineral absorption. Something to keep a watch on if being underweight is an issue.

If eating them roasted, you should be fine.

Raw Brazil nuts and raw cacao and extremely high in phytates as well.

As a precautionary measure I don't eat too many nuts but if I do they are always roasted.

I eat a ton of meat and sardines also.  Decided this week to lay off the nut butter and buy nuts in bulk instead.  I intend to eat them all of course.   ;D
