1/3 of a cup of sunflower seeds is 320 calories. that's quite a bit for something miniscule and harmless as seeds. my question if i started eating 1 cup a day, will i get fat?

If that puts you 1000 calories over maintenance, then yes, probably...

i agree with deeder, nuts are an excellent source of good fat. But if it puts you over your needed daily calorie intake, the answer is yes.
