Well today i felt for a snack and ate some walnuts & peanuts.. don't know if it was too much or not but it didn't seem to be that much, like a handful of walnuts and prob 2 handfuls of small spanish peanuts - all natural/raw<br><br><br><br>
And.. it took about 5 hours for my stoamach to feel normal again - felt sick/nausea and bloated (although my stomach didn't look bigger) had some slight pain on both right & left side on my upper abdomen..not severe though -it onlt lastd for a few sec.<br><br><br><br>
But i'm still worried.. could this mean something serious? I know that i have a weak digestive system and that i can't have big meals or combine certain foods together. and most of the time it seems like as if all the food i eat pass through fairly quickly, my bm doesn't get the brown colour its like yellow to bright yellow<br><br><br><br>
I've heard that it might be gallbladder or pancreatic problems but the thing is like i don't have any severe pain or other symptoms.......or is it just a matter of time? i'm a bit scared.... if anyone knows what it might be or have experienced the same pls post. thanks heaps!!

that wouldn't be a lot of nuts for most people.<br><br>
But if you have specific health problemns like the digestive ones you mentioned, I don't think many people on this board will be able to help you. Your doctor will know more about your digestion problems then we do and will be able to put your mind at rest if it is nothing. You need to phone him, now or ASAP.

3 handfuls of nuts sounds like a lot to me. I can't really imagine it making me sick, but it is a lot, and a lot of fat in one snack. 1/2 cup pf walnuts has 38 grams of fat, and 3/4 peanuts (both raw) has 54 grams of fat. So 92 grams of fat in ONE snack? Yeah - that's a lot.

i get sick if i eat too many nuts or certain kinds of nuts. (too many being more than a small handful). and walnuts are no-go for me pretty much no matter what. but i also know i have an extremely sensitive digestive system.<br><br><br><br>
have you seen a doctor about your digestive problems?

I shared your concerns with my mom. She had some pacreatic problems in the past. Her suggestion was to contact PanCan and ask for a pal's associate. They will give you the names of <i>experienced</i> PC gastroenterologists in your area. 877-272-6226 (California time).

people with gall bladders that aren't quite working right can get sick when eating too many nuts or a lot of nuts along with other fatty foods. my grandpa told me about this when i offered him a lot of nuts when they came to dinner one time. might be worth checking out, especially if it happens again.

Yea i want to check it out, but my parents are so busy right now and i don't have much time to think about going to doctors like appointments etc since i'm full on studying, lots of skoolwork and stuff like that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
I'm also suspecting low stomach acid because it's not just fats and proteins that are hardest for me to digest, but sometimes complex carbs / starchy stuff can upset my entire system too.<br><br><br><br>
The only foods that actually doesn't produce much symptoms ar just veggies & fruit, like liquid, watery easy to digest & it also gives me a feeling of 'cleansing' not like heavy & bloated after eating anything else

Peanuts contain trypsin inhibitors which may be stabilized by roasting, hence interfering with your ability to break down protein. If you do have issues with your pancreas, that could be the problem. Not sure whether or not sprouting or blanching would make a difference, but it's probably better to consult a doctor rather than do experiments on yourself. Do you have trouble with any other beans?

Yea I know about trypsin inhibitors in nuts and beans, i always soak my beans for at least 12-15 hr & then cook them for about 30 mins. But i have to admit that beans are also a bit hard for me to digest, no matter how finely i chew it, i just get gas & bloated after an hour eating it... i've made bean pastes/sauces before, and it works better but i still get those gastrointestinal problems but not as severe of course. I have no idea if its pancreatic problems or gallbladder problems or just low stomach HCL, could be anything. You're def right about the doctor thing, i do want to go and have some check ups if the symptoms persists..i'll see how i go

Please be sure to go to a doctor that is "experienced" gastroenterologist. General doctors sometimes miss things that gastro doctors don't. Big hugs.

<p>I have a similar question, I guess. <br>
I don't feel sick ( yet ) but I'm not sure if I eat too many nuts . I also suspect they make me break out ( my skin cleared up nicely when I stopped eating them but then, I stopped eating a few other things 'round that time too and I started eating many nuts again a few days ago and still clear. Perhaps it takes a few days ? ) . <br><br>
Today, for example, I had about 28g dry roasted almonds and a slice involving cashews. Is that too many? Am I..I don't know..relying too heavily on nuts for calories or unbalancing my omega 6 and 3 or..something? <br><br>
I used to just eat what I wanted but I'm trying to pay more attention to such things :D ..<br><br>

<p>Thanks :) . I eat plenty of those . It's all good. I was probably just being neurotic and silly. A way I was for years and years and have loved NOT being over the last few. Overthinking is bad. If there's a problem with my diet, I guess I'll know :) . Hehe. </p>
