I asked NS, but I'm impatient - Its Saturday night and I doubt if I will get an answer before Monday or Tuesday.

So does anyone know if peanuts are allowed and if so, how much and how do they count?.

As of 9/10/10, the official word is that 1 T of PB is ok, but not peanuts (go figure)..

Comment #1

I just compared and the nutrition for almonds vs. dry-roasted peanuts is pretty much the same. Maybe there is some reason why 1 T of PB is ok but 1/2 oz. of peanuts is not, but darned if I know what it is..

The main concern with nuts is they are very calorie-dense. I don't eat them on days when my lean option is going to be higher in fat/cals b/c it will put me over the Medifast limits. Also they can be a trigger. There are people on this board who choose not to eat PB b/c they know they won't stop at 1 TB...

Peanut butter is ok - but peanuts aren't. Thats weird. Peanut butter is a definite trigger for me - so I choose not to eat it. But, peanuts aren't. Just thought I'd ask. I'll see what Nutrisystem tells me..

Well If I get a craving for walnuts I am DEFINITELY eating 7 halves and not 3 whole nuts ! Hahaha!..

I had never had raw almonds before Medifast (I've always been partial to the salted and roasted variety) but I tried them recently and HOLY CRAP. Instead of just tasting salt, I'm tasting what almonds actually taste like and I like it better! Either that or Medifast is brainwashing me...hmm......

I've been trying to have either PB or nuts as a snack everyday. That and our healthy fat will keep the gall bladder functioning well...

Comment #6

So........... some of us are eating nuts in some form or another and counting it as a snack? I don't normally eat the snacks - but this week I've been awfully hungry between meals!..

Comment #7

Calorie snacks can increase your time on plan pretty significantly. It's not worth it, to me...

Comment #8

For me, I am willing to average 2 lbs a week and be less likely to run into gall bladder problems.

Also, nuts are a great source of healthy fats and biotin. Maybe that will also help me to avoid hair loss.

Also, I was considering the 4&2 because I exercise 6-8 hours per week. That snack seems to do the trick and I have stayed on the 5&1.

Now, if I come here complaining about my weight loss slowing, feel free to remind me that I might want to cut out my caloric snacks.

Anyways, all of this is personal choice. Some people really want to get the weight off ASAP for health or financial reasons. I'm okay with being a tortoise...

Remember peanuts are not a nut. They are a legume. Maybe that's partially why they are not allowed. Though not sure why peanut butter is with yhat theory...
