Nuts!

FAQ

Posted by [...] on 2 months ago

Hi,

Everything is fine, but I'm wondering about snacking. I love pistachios but they are so tasty, I'm wondering if they are the best choice. what about almonds?

Also I've been eating fresh corn solo. Is that OK along with juicing?

Also I've been eating gojis and cacao nibs. Thanks so much.

    I don't eat nuts, too many calories, too easy to oink down 300 calories without trying. Tends to stall the scale. Corn is not so bad. I like to eat zucchini and peppers in broth because the calorie count is way low and it's easy on the stomach.

    Thanks so much. I hear you, but I read that some of them have a lot of nutritional value. I'll try the zucchini.

    Oh, they have plenty of nutritional value, and are quite good for you. It's just not a good choice while on a reboot, that's all. I love nuts and seeds, but I find when I start dipping into the peanuts too much, the weight loss slows down. Eat them if you want, but watch the calorie count cause it all adds up. There seems to be a calorie point with me where the weight loss slows way down if I'm not careful.

    My rule of thumb is that whatever I dip into has to be no more than 100 calories a day, be it nuts or crackers or whatever. If I stick to that limit, I have no problem.

    Thanks. Yes, they are tasty. I am lucky that weight is not an issue for me. I doing this for health and long life. Any way as long as we are on the subject, what about protein. I have been very dedicated to only juicing veggies and fruit, but I wonder about protein.

    Generally speaking, juice only does not provide enough protein, especially if we are active. The "official" recommendation here is that you take a protein supplement once a day.

    I use Nutrasumma pea protein. There are other good ones out there.

    The reboot team recommends pea/rice or at least vegetable protein over whey. I'm not sure, as pea protein does not have methionine, whereas whey does. Probably because the focus here is plant-based, and whey protein is not plant based. Also, they sell their own pea/rice based powder :). Most plant based protein sources are missing an amino acid or two and are not considered a "complete protein", including pea. Soy protein has all of the amino acids in it, and might be a better choice if you can find a good source, I make my own tofu and use that for much of my protein source when not on a reboot. It probably doesn't matter in the long run...

    That is where I got mine from. Come to find out that their factory is about five miles from my home. I'm tempted to visit to see if they will sell stuff OTC for a discount :)
