LCHF: The best nuts

Nuts and seeds are great snacks whilst low carbing. Or are they? Well, they can be! But there are large differences so be careful.

I have compiled a list of some nuts and seeds that low carbers can snack on - and some you should avoid. All the values are per 100 g but if you actually eat 100 g you are overdoing it - nuts should be in enjoyed as snacks, i.e. small portions and not en masse since they are rich in calories.

Green - Great low carb snacks but beware of calories!
Yellow - Occasionally ok but do not eat too often or too much
Red - These nuts I would not consider low-carb. Avoid.


  1. Interesting. I've been eating sunflower seeds and now know why it's slowing down my ketosis. I recently switched to pumpkin seeds. I don't see that on the list, but I'm guessing the same holds true for them as well.

  2. Good diets all come down to picking out the one that suits you best. A Diet that you can stick to and not kill yourself in the process. nutrisystem vs medifast diet
