Q. i tend to binge on food and i love nuts!does it pose any health danger if you eat too much of it? i just love spanish peanut and a mixture of cashew,almond & macademia.i eat a lot of it everyday.

A. Binge eating is not very healthy, because you tend to eat a lot of everything without even realizing it, and usually it is not all healthy food. About nuts, peanuts, etc. these contain very high amount of fat, and therefore a 100 grams of nuts is equal to 100 grams of oil! They have about 750 calories per 100 grams in them. No doubt they are healthy and the fat in them is saturated (rich in "good" cholesterol), however eating a lot of it will make you gain weight! You should eat about 6-7 nuts a day and that would be enough, because I assume you consume fat in other ways too (oil in cooking, etc.).

Q. does being allergic to peanuts mean you can’t eat peanuts as a whole nut? Or should you avoid spreads, cookies, cornflakes etc. as well.

A. people allergic to peanuts are, most of the times, a very severely allergic people. it has an astounding reaction that can lead to death because of specks of peanuts in a cookie.
