With the exception of chestnuts, which are very low in fat, nuts and seeds contain much more fat than is recommended in a reversal diet. Most nuts are between 60% and 90% calories from fat. Our recommendation is for very limited consumption. Because they tend to be consumed by many in high quantities (the bottom of the bag is quickly reached without even noticing while watching TV or reading), people who do not limit portions would best avoid them.

Nuts and seeds must contain enough internal energy (fat) until they establish a root system that will provide an external source of energy for growth. While some contain omega fatty acids, there are many other lower fat sources of omegas.

Research conclusions on omegas is mixed; not all findings show benefits for those with cardiovascular risk factors, and some reports caution against certain combinations of omegas.
