Through experimentation, i've pretty much concluded that any nut gives me problems, raw or not. It seems like they should be pretty healthy. It's not the O6, because I just had small amounts.

I had an IgG test, and the results showed I had a few different nut intolerances. The test I had only checked various nuts, but just to be on the safe side I avoid them completely.

I have problems with nuts as well, every single time I have tried eating nuts for a period of time then I end up with more spots and more inflammation. I don't think i'm allergic to it I think it has to do with the ability of them to lower my estrogen levels.

Nuts are a pretty common allergen, especially tree nuts. Also they have high amounts of Omega-6s, with the exception of Macadamia nuts. I'd try macadamias and see how you react to it.

^ It's probably an allergy then. I take fish oil, so a 1/4 cup or so of walnuts or almonds shouldn't be a big deal in terms of o6.

LOL - Nothing like balancing some rancid immunosuppressive omega 3's with some gut damaging omega 6 - what a recipe for success.

Did you have to be a jerk about your opinion of a bad diet?

I don't see that it's different -- Doing things that are contrary to a desired goal.

well, they obviously are working. W/o fish oil, I break out on my back. They also contain vitamin E to prevent rancidity.

They are rancid in production. Well you're suppressing your immune system - so sure they will work. Spiro, accutane, and anti-biotics also "work"... Why not just consume some shellfish, and fish - Real whole foods that have a multitude of other benefits for your health.

Nuts in general are very hard on the digestion. It is ideal to soak them if you choose to eat them as they contain phytic acid (inhibits absorption of vital nutrients) and enzyme inhibitors. When you soak them in water overnight you remove these inhibitors and reduce the phytic acids so that you can break them down easier. It is probably best though to avoid nuts if you have digestive issues or eat them in moderation as they are hard on the digestion.

I never really understood the deal with nuts... I eat almonds and macadamia nuts mostly, and don't seem to have any problems with them. But I always read such contradicting information on them that I'm not sure if I should cut them out altogether?...

Macadamias are fine (and taste the best of any nut in my opinion.) Almonds are a bit more problematic. Walnuts have an insane amount of omega 6s so I steer clear.

^ walnuts also have a lot of omega 3s though. For some reason they broke me out though... I've had macadamias before, though I don't remember if they caused any problems and I'm scared to eat more nuts

I have problems with almonds, both raw and roasted. I'm too scared to try other nuts too.

I do. Any kind of nut breaks me out so bad on my neck I look like I have a terrible case of chicken pox! Doesn't matter what I do, soak or not they destroy my skin. Elf
