well, yeah. they do contain sat'd. fats as well as the good fats, so TOO much would not be good. you on an Atkin's diet or something?

I think it depends on your goals. Too many nuts will push you over your caloric threshold due their being calorie dense. The nutrients in nuts are helpful but too many calories is still going to be stored as fat.

It's not the fats that are bad, it's just lots of calories in such of small package. I consider them more of a bulking treat than cutting treat.

My weakness is any kind of nut. So I have to be really careful...sooooo many calories in a handful of macadamia nuts

Nuts are good and quite satiating.

As long as your total fat and total calorie intake is under control I see no reason to eat lots of nuts. (unroasted, unsalted)

Ok what do you think....the fat in nuts are healthy fats...does the body process them differently or are the calories still considered fat and stored as such if not used. MCT oil is handled differently by the body than other fats however excess consumption would be considered extra calories....a handful of nuts is about 300-400 calories which is a meal for some who are dieting.

YIKES !
