Are nuts addicting? Every time I eat them I eat so many of them, then I feel bad afterwards. I think I'd like to quit nuts all together. Plus, they are only good when soaked? Is this true?

For me - nuts are completely addicting! I can totally relate - I overeat them and then feel horribly bloated and gross.
The last couple weeks I haven't been having any nuts at home. When I go out to a raw restaurant, I will have nuts there because it's a controlled portion. Whenever I buy a bag of nuts for home, it just disappears - I have no stopping power.
Yes, it's best to have soaked nuts. That helps digest them better...but it doesn't help me with the overeating.

They are addicting! But I need them for protein.

Yes, they do have protein. There must be a better way to get one's daily protein... I eat chia seeds in my smoothie every morning. I'm going to go on a nut fast and see how I feel!

I find nuts to be very non addicting......I could have grabbed a pate or my fresh home made, climate controlled almond butter for lunch....but today I just wanted my dandelion greens salad......
My question for you lot is:
Are your raw nuts really raw??? I order mine online from exclusive raw food websites. A bit pricey, but if you eat only 1/2 the amount....maybe you'll break even or come out ahead slightly, LOL!
I was real hungry and super lazy one night this week and dove into a bag of the cashews....delicious, 2 very small handfuls - and I couldn't be bothered, I was done - hunger solved.
I honestly wonder about all the nut stuff written around here.....
Nuts reportedly make people tired, sluggish, etc. Addictive, et al.
Raw nuts at whole foods and trader joes are not raw - so people are fooled many times I think.....
It's not easy finding true RAW in the world!
