    Such thing as to many peanunts?

    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.

    Almonds, walnuts, and cashews are high on my list.
