Hey is it ok to consume around 160 grams of peannuts aday, split into 2 servings? usualy i eat 80g in the day some times and then another 80g later in the afternoon around 8 is this too much fat from nuts?

cheers :)

There's no way to answer that question unless we know your maintenance calories, the macronutrients from your daily calories, and your goal.

Hey

my maintinance is around 2,500 cals i have lately just upped them to 3,400 a day beacuase i noticed i stopped gaining any weight for quite q while so i decided to measure my food and stuff and it turned out i was consuming around 2,600 cals a day most of the time, so i thought upping them to around 3,200 to 3,400 would suffice, and peanuts are a good source for good fats and cals plus the extra of added protein.

my macros for yesterday where:

fat : 108g

carbs: 364g

protein: 276

total calories = 3464

o yeh and im doing a slow clean bulk trying to gain around 1lb a week i currently weigh 180lbs 15% - 17% body fat, 5"10

cheers again

Numbers look okay.

A lot of people say there are better nuts than peanuts, but I've never had a problem with them.
