Gday,

Sitting in the office all day and realising how defficient my diet is already Ive decided to buy some nuts to nibble on during the day.

I hear they're high in protein.

Ive bought about 400g of salted cashews... yum

Anyone have any idea how good they are, how much protein they have etc?

I dunno bout high in protein, but they do have EFAs. I'd probably watch the amount of sodium you intake though, if you're trying to cut.

There an incomplete protein. Might be an ideal to have them with another incomplete protein source or maybe something like a glas off milk. If you not including them as a meal tho ..... nibble away my friend :)

Sodium is the chemical in salt right?

If so what is its effect on a cutting diet?

salt = sodium chloride
it makes you retain water as far as I know

It's an electrolyte. Too much can cause water retention, so long as you drink plenty of water ... it's not a problem unless your trying to cut.

Well first off, most salty foods are bad. Mostly becasue of their sugar or fat content. ie french fries, potato chips, pizza etc etc. So if you cutting you won't be eating them anyway. Not alot of sodium in oats, rice and turkey.

Excess sodium when cutting (or any time) can give you a watery look and cause mental torment when looking in a mirror and seeing a lack of progression in your diet due to excess water.

It's also not good for blood pressure !

You could also use unrefined sea slat that has other minerals in it

If you'd like, you can nibble on Deez Nutts :D But really, they are a good source of fats but I wouldnt count on them for protein. Why not just get unsalted nuts? They taste great.

try rinsing the salted nuts. it cuts some of the salt but not all. you can still get that salty flavor with less salt. and the 13.5gm is the fat and 4.5gm is the protien. try adding some walnuts and sunflower seeds for their vitamine k and chromium

Or even "lightly salted" instead of rinsing them ;)

You're not going to like everything you eat while you are bodybuilding. Best to just suck it up.

When buliking and not notacing gains inbetween meals

I eat peanuts
I will wash them, to remove excess salt

Using extra whey or milk inbetween meals helps too

cashew are similar to peanuts, if your bulking and you like high fat, then they are a good food. if your not so keen on high fat and you are loosing weight, then not so good.

Borgod Maxximus
11-18-2002, 10:05 PM

But nuts are a good source for fat in a diet right??? Because that's what i basically eat for fat in my bulking diet. I wanted to use flaxseed oil but i don't know what it is and how do you call it in spanish (I live in south america:D)

What other fat sources can i eat that i can find down here???? If there are none i'll keep eating my nuts (no pun intended)

how much better for you is sea salt than normal salt? would it be ok to consume some sea salt in your diet when cutting?

restless

Sea salt isn't only sodium like normail salt it also has magnesium and other minerals in it so it's better in terms of general health. It will still cause some water retention in large quantities. I think.

It also depends if the nuts are roasted, and how they are roasted. Raw is better

Yes, nuts are a good source of fat in the diet. Salmon is a good source of healthy fats as well, rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
