Anything bad in eating a lot of nuts a day?

THese are the only things I snack on. I bought Emerald varieties, like roasted almond, cocoa almonds and salt&pepper cashews. For the last month I have been eating close to a half pound a day, this is in addition to my 1800-2000 low carb, hi protein, some fat calories per day. Am i taking in too much fat via nuts?

what am i reading the labels for? They're pretty standard nutritionally among the nut family, just wondering if too many nuts is bad.

Well if you are trying to stick to 1800-2000 cal a day there is going to be a slight problem.

Not worried about the extra calories, and not to debate the merits of a high fat low carb diet. Just wondering if eating a half to almost a pound of nuts a day, in of itself, would be considered healthy.

Other then the extra cals and fat they are fine. I think he's asking if to much nuts could be possibly bad for your health, Like drinking to much soda would seriously damage your health. I mean if you eat 15lbs of nuts a day you might see some bad effects, but if your snacking on them every day your good to go

I got some stanky farts when I ate half a kg of almonds once. Stanky and loooooong.

I seem to remember some variety of nut has fairly high levels of some heavy metal. (I hope its not almonds, because I eat a lot of them too, so tasty)

You could be taking in an awful lot of sodium I suppose, but nuts are certainly better than most snack foods.
