I don't believe nuts have any kind of 'emotional addiction' forme like say eating an entire thing of ice cream or a whole case of Oreos. Rather, I don't think I use them to fill an emptiness or make me feel happy when I am sad or depressed. Though, maybe I reach for them INSTEAD of cookies subconsciously? So same sparking mechanism, I just try to make it a healthier alternative? Hmm I will have to think.
I, DO, however believe they can be addicting, biologically, for reasons It Starts With Food mentions: The combo of salt and fat (and carbs even for Cashews, or any nut once you double the serving size )
Anywho, I'm going cold-turkey for the remaining Whole 30. I need to kick this nut thing WIll you help me out? 167 days ago
LOL - no, you didn't offend me. A lot of people ask/advise me about adding in extra fats while on a Whole30. No offense taken I will add incorporate avocados with a meal, just have to make sure and not have too many which is a shame because I love them. 174 days ago
I LOVED hot yoga, I did it religiously for a couple months and felt awesome. Now, I just stick to regular yoga because there are none around. I'm the kind of person that feels better sweating, so I felt so detoxed after. That's so awesome. We can still be yoga buddies...even if I am not "HOT"
Good luck today! Eat extra clean for me! And I'm staying away from those almonds! 174 days ago
