i need to gain as u all know, and i guess nuts are super good and healthy! its just i dunno how much to eat as a snack. they are really really really fatty and i dont wanna overdo it, but how much is enuf? peanuts usually have 2 nuts in each shell, so if i had 5 of those i had 10 nuts? im not 2 shure...i love em tho!
I dont think you need to stop after 5 peanuts...grab a handful, or like some posters said 1/4 cup or so, and munch on! You ARE trying to gain, and the fats in them aren't all bad. Even better, try almond or walnuts for really healthy fats (and you dont have to count those!)
most people go overboard on one serving when it comes to eating any type of nuts without even knowing it. However, like others said, almonds, walnuts and cashews are better options. Peanuts are still very good for you and probably the best tasting out of them all. In my opinion anyway.
