Nuts and seeds of all sorts are good, preferably if eaten raw and not in excess.
I have but one goal, to witness the demise of this entity which plagues us all.
Join me in my quest, if you will. Light will shine once again on this
barren wasteland. For where there is hope... there is victory.

Just don't eat too much of them - they have high calorie contents. I avoid peanuts, but eat some soya nuts (not acutally nuts but close enough) and a nut/fruit mix to help with digestion if i haven't filled up at the end of a meal!

After all, man is not what he eats, but what he can digest and assimilate. And i can't assimilate much fructose at all!

yes they're "good" fats, except you can easily rack up 100x those "good" fats compared to the other "good" fats

walnuts are definately your best choice, it has the best O3/O6 ratio of all of the nuts.

which also happens to be the highest amount amongst nuts (i believe)

44 grams omega 6 per cup !

if you are chowing down that much omega 6 per day (not just from the nuts) then fish oil or fish in general won't even make a dent in that

Nutritiondata's nutritionist Monica Reinagel says that the best way to avoid inflammation is to have a not too high (preferibly low) inflammation index. +50 for example is a good level.
The best way to do this is to remove or limit food with an high-inflammation index and to combine food with low-inflammation index and food with moderate inflammation index.

All nuts according to nutritiondata are highly anti-inflammatory except for walnuts and pine nuts that are slighlty inflammatory.

The Inflammation Index is way more reliable than any sort of n3/n6 ratio because of many factors including the amoung of n9 (which like n3 don't compete against n6) and the amount of anti-inflammatory compounds (which makes whatever extra amount of n6 irrelevant)

For example according to nutritiondata and Reinagel olive oil is extrmely anti-inflammatory in spite of a rather high content of n6 (balanced by an high containt of n9 and very high content of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytos)

Anyway a n3/n6 ratio of 5:1 is good and non-inflammatory compared to the 20:1 of average western guy. A diet which is rich in greens, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, olive oil and avoid processed fats, extracted plant oil and margarine provide a ratio of 5:1.

The real problem is neither the lack of fish oil or fish (which for the majority of people is just a modern commodity unknown to all inlanders just a century ago) neither an high intake of fatty plants and nuts. The problem real problem that caused such a negative n3/n6 ratio is the modern availability of oils and extracted fats (added to almost everything industrially prepared and sold on supermarket)

Well put info again Dan. I think more that the ratio is so bad due to carbs being the number 1 on the food pyramid more so then the fact fat is added to foods to unbalance it. My opinion tho maybe its a combination of both tho.

Yes almonds are good.
All in they have a low omega-6 content, a discrete omega-3 content and a moderate omega-9 content. Plus they contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in high quantity.
This makes them highly anti-inflammatory foods.

Put them in your salad or ground them
What do you mean by disgusting?
Do they have a normal flavour that you happen not to like or they really state disgusting as in acid or bitter? Because in the second case they're probably rancid
