Nut Addiction

OMG!  I can’t stop eating them.  I get home and I have a few, and I wake up and I have more and between meals I’m having some.  Actually,  I’m not just talking a few nuts… I’m talking easily 20 – 30 nuts per sitting.  Yikes.  I think as much benefits that nuts have, I have to stop having them!  I’ve identified other trigger foods in my diet that is now hands off:  potato chips, chocolate, rice, french fries.

BOOYAH!  NUTS you are officially on the Addiction list.

How do you know you have a food addiction?

1.  You have it at least 4 to 5 times a week.

2.  It’s in your kitchen cupboard or fridge right now.

3.  You have a stash everywhere:  in the office, in your car, under the bed, in the kids room, at your parents house

4.  You think it makes a great appetizer or dessert with EVERY meal.

5.  You suggest it as part of every office potluck.

6.  It’s part of your grocery list.

7.  You can’t just have  a little.  You put it in a small bowl with good intentions, but then refill the bowl again and again.
If you agree with any one of these on the list, you have a food addiction.  So what do you do?

The only way to stop the addiction is STOP cold turkey. Don’t say you’ll just have a little, it won’t work.  Just stop eating it!

You know you want to CHANGE.

Change is GOOD.  Embrace it.


  1. Lilitte, nuts are an easy food to get addicted on. Since they can pretty much sub in for a snack anywhere and everywhere. But ya gotta watch out for them because even though they’re packed with nutrients they’re also loaded with fat. Yeah, it’s a healthy fat, but still not ideal if trying to cut down in bodyfat.



    1. Thanks Mitch. I did find that my diet wasn’t working so well with my added addictions to nuts. Because of the benefits, I still kept eating them. Now, though, I’ve officially quit. All that fat and calories…yikes! Lol
