i was reading the SB book and i was wondering about pistachios well nuts too it said that you can have 30 of them now:carrot: it may be the blond in me but is that 30 for the day or for the snack you are have say after lunch or something .....what do you all think :?::dizzy::listen:

I always interpreted it as 30 pistachios for the day, or 15 almonds for the day, etc. You can have them all in one snack or spread them out throughout the day. Am I right about that chicks? I always wondered why it was 2T of peanut butter for the day though when the nut servings come to 100 calories and the peanut butter comes to about 200 calories.

I thought of that question too?

It is per day.

As for the pb vs. other nut conundrum...well not everything is 100% consistant in the diet. I usually say 1T of PB for a snack serving. 2T if it is part of a meal.

I have peanut butter frequently but I usually do stick with just 1 T of it/day. That is plenty if you are spreading it on celery or a waffle, and as it is so high in fat, 2T just always seemed like too much to me. well not everything is 100% consistant in the diet You can say that again!
