Subject:         Calorie Density - mentioned on Q & A
Date: August 11, 2007 at 2:04 pm PST


Would you mind to explain calorie density in relation to nuts and seeds? I understand that nuts and seeds (with seeds ahead of nuts) are dense in nutrients and calories whereas vegetables tend to be dense in nutrients but not calories.

I ask because I eat 1/4 cup of sunflower and pumpkin seeds (1/2 c total - these are raw and unsalted) daily for specific health issues. For a total picture, the rest of my daily food intake is focused primarily on green vegetables (and cruciferous veggies) both raw and cooked with some fruits as desserts. Some days I eat 1 c of beans but not every day. I do not eat any wheat or grain products for health issues. I am not highly active (working on increasing my exercise) or overweight.

You mentioned on the Q & A that nuts and seeds must be eaten with portions in mind unlike whole unprocessed vegetables (such as broccoli). Any suggestions?

Thank you,
