    Peanuts will certainly cause weight gain as will a lot of other nuts if eaten regularly and in moderate amounts

    Why do you think that this is so if the carbs are not high?

    Why would small portions of peanuts make you put on weight? If they are within carb n calorie allowances?

  5. On UK packaging, the fibre has already been subtracted from the carbs. You don't subtract it again. As DD says, the carbs seem to vary from brand to brand so check the label.

    I eat quite a lot of peanuts and have good weight loss and bg. Like everything else, test test test.

    We need salt when we low carb. http://authoritynutrition.com/5-most-common-low-carb-mistakes/

    I too have no problem with weight. As said, I eat them regularly, especially as a snack in the morning (no appetite at that time) - and also in order to cheat my system to believe I am feeding it - ha! - otherwise my liver might 'kindly' think that now it will need to dump some glucose as this person seems in need of that! Believe me, I have had several and severe conversations with my liver - but does it listen? (Rhetorical question).

    Also, I freely eat salt (my salt balance is on the low side) so I have no qualms about that. (And usually my fasting numbers are in the 4's or low 5's with occasional high 3's thrown in to make this interesting).

  8. I don't think anything is off the menu as long as we test. Luckily I am ok with legumes, but I am rubbish with carrots. Weird.

    The fibre (4.9g) is quoted but it is not clear if that is inclusive or exclusive. It seems that everywhere I look comes up with different carb figures. I snack on salted peanuts anyway since I like them and the very low GI hopefully does not cause a spike.

    As above posts above, we are all individual and some of us include nuts every day in our diet and have not got excess weight.

    Yes, we are all different. I dont need to bolus for some vegetables like cauli, cabbage, broccoli, runner beans etc, whereas you do.

    Nuts if eaten in small amounts wont cause weight gain if moderate exercise is also done but if eaten as snacks and with not much activity, then spare tyre will slowly develop

    I eat a handful every day as a snack. Love them! I have a fry up for brekkie, piece of cheese for lunch and nuts at 3 for my snack.

    No, I bolus for very little nowadays.

    This morn for example raspberries, strawberries and blueberries and onken plain yogurt and because of work or today and on holiday and walking a great deal I do not need to bolus.

    If I do not have my brekkie my basals are perfect. But my body is now using the extra fat and food brilliantly and basals and bolus have dropped back down hugely.....I never sit down, nowadays and sitting down after food was probably more related to needing bolus's.

    I was sure I had a bad batch of tubes.. And sure this affected everything. Now I am convinced as all my basals are back down to under 14g a day and in fact from having more fat, i still need to lower them.

    It is very hard to generalise giving advice that people will need to bolus, or not.. Or put on weight, or not.
    Even 'moderate' amounts of nuts will be different for each person. My moderate will be hugely different to your moderate....However, as yet there isn't anybody that has said weight gone on from what I have read....

    That needs explanation.. The only morning that I may not have a breakfast now is a lay in delayed to a bruch on a Sunday. Since Phoenix's brilliant advice on fat and research on salt I have increased all of it and never felt better.

    Depends on which diet you follow. I eat them on lchf and am fine. Usually have a couple of handfuls. Lidl sell mixed nuts in a bag and I often have several handfuls a day of peanuts or the mixed nuts. Can't comment on healthy plate. Probably limited amounts on that but you'd need to ask someone.
