how bad are they on a lowcarb diet? if these are the only carbs u have in the day. i was lookin at them and it didnt seem so bad per serving its about 7g carbs(2g fiber),6g protein and 12g fat. 4 servings during the day would only add up to 28g carbs(8g fiber) and give me alot of good fats and some protein. im trying to get something for a snack thats portable and these seem pretty good.

wha do u guys think of it?

Well, if those are the only carbs you have in a day, then I'd classify that as low carb. I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Peanuts are good and all, but what are the restrictions of your low carb diet? We can't tell you if they fit in, you need to tell us if they do.

Pick something else to eat. Something that's higher in protein.

A little tip about ANY diet - low carb or otherwise - if you're hungry, eat a meal. If you eat 6 meals a day, it's a LOT easier to control your "snacking"

On a low carb diet, you really want to be getting your carbs from more nutrient dense foods than honey-roasted peanuts. Peanuts aren't all that great on low carb anyway.

And there are better ways to diet if you lift weights. Carb cycling, for instance. That's what I do.

well carbs for the day right now im trying to keep it under 30g active carbs for the day... i guess for the snacking i was just trying to add more times per day that i eat because i was just eating 3 meals and 2 of those meals are shakes so i wanted some more real food but easy to bring along and low carbs. so if i added 2 snacks of peanuts it would mean 5 meals per day and it has a little fiber added.

i guess my question was i dont like the dry roasted peanuts or saled peanuts alot but the honey roasted i can eat for days, would it be so bad to have 4 servings per day or would it not work on a lowcarb diet?

thank you for the replies

Indeed. Hardly what I would consider "Atkins friendly".

I loved Atkins. It was a great way to get started when I was still fat.

Well what is the purpose of your low carb diet? Are you cycling carbs? Are you doing a CKD-type diet and wish to enter ketosis? What exactly are you asking...are they good for what?

Yes, if it means you end up eating too many calories.

What makes you think that eating carbs at all won't let you lose weight to begin with?

its not that i dont think i cant lose weight with carbs its just for my situation the lower the carbs the better. im 380 lbs 22 years old and have diabetes for a couple years now. i can lose weight with moderate carbs but its just takes longer and more control of my meals(preparing oats,brown rice,ect.) were peanuts,protein shakes and when im home i eat the regular meals(meat) is easier.

i posted before about drinking shakes and only eating 1-2 real meals so im trying to add peanuts and other little things here and there so im eating more times per day

thank you guys for the help so far i do appreicate it

Well, to answer your question, as long as you're in a caloric deficit, the 20 or whatever grams of carbs you get from those peanuts doesn't make a difference.
