    also. since nuts are so high in fat won't they throw off your calorie ratios way off? I guess you could only eat them if you had almost no other fat in your diet? Or do you just not count them like incomplete proteins in other stuff.

    they are incomplete proteins but still a good source of quality fat
    Its ok to eat nuts just dont eat them with a lot of carbs and watch how they fit in to your overall cal. intake

    they are most useful on lower carb diets
