    What up guys. Ok, first of all, im addicted to sunflower seeds. The problem with this is that I get the ones that are already cracked (no shell), so I can put down a lot of these.

    My question is, are these type of seeds considered a EFA? I like them a lot better than cashews and almonds. Actually almonds are pretty good.

    all i know about almonds is that i've heard if you want to keep your metabolism on all night you should eat 25 almonds before going to sleep.

    Sunflower seeds and other nuts are all sources of "good" fat, but the EFA's most Americans are deficient in is Omega-3's, and unless you eat a lot of fresh sea-caught fish like mackerel and sardines, you're probably better off getting an Omega-3 pill (Kirkland from Costco is recommended). This topic has been done to death in this subforum, just look around, already.

    Thx Madmick
    Actually I did look around and the threads that talked about nuts said nothing about sunflower seeds.

    If thats the first thing that comes to mind when reading that title, then you're a Certified Fag!

    To me, sunflower seeds are no fun if they are pre-shelled.
