Greetings -- I am a lurker for the most part and am impressed in all parts with the knowledge on this page. How many of you incorporate almonds into your daily or weekly diet? I see more people than ever before purchasing almonds and continue to hear snipets about the positive health benefits of consuming nuts on a regular basis. Do you agree almonds are as helpful as claimed?
I have lost many, many pounds by cutting fat and excess carbos from my diet along with a structured exercise regime. Consuming almonds or other nuts strikes me as counter-productive because of the fat content. How do other health minded folks view these tradeoffs?
Thanks very much.
