How about the other nuts? Peanuts are really not a true nut since they grow underground. Maybe almonds, pistachios or walnuts would be OK. Nuts do have good fats.
Unfortunately, almost all nuts make me bingey. I've tried them all...sunflower seeds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, macadamias...I love 'em all....too much so! I like them because they are satisfying, but it seems that it's very hard to keep myself to one serving.
It's been a while since I made roasted chickpeas...might have to make those again
I guess if nuts gave me problems I'd just skip them. There are enough other things to eat. I'd really miss them though.
I rely on nuts as a filling snack. They are easy to overeat so I count or measure them into snack size baggies as soon as I buy them. That keeps me from mindlessly eating more than one serving at once and it's easy to just grab a bag and go.
Peanuts don't do much for me. Almonds and pistachios are my favorites, I really like sunflower seeds too.
I really like dry roasted edamame. I have the same problem with nuts and nut butter. I've had to just stop eating them beyond a couple of T of nut butter in something. Salted are the worst, I do better with 100 calorie packs of unroasted almonds.

Love the 100 calorie packs of nuts
Also roasted pumpkin seeds are good
I find as long as I portion it out and don't eat out of the container (for anything nut just nuts) I have less inclination for more especially if it involves going into another room to get it!
