Diet: Sunflower Seeds

I was wondering how you guys feel about eating sunflower seeds as a snack when on a diet?

yes\no…

Why not eat them? All nuts get the green light in my opinion.

depends on how you eat em… I eat them without licking all the salt, so I just eat the seeds. I would assume if you just suck on the salt its no good

They’re a protein. unless diets want you to reduce salt intake, i don’t see why not.

I used to eat them while on the job. Good olde Jim Beam flavored sun flower seeds. Then I looked at the sodium content and became saddened by my discovery. I would recommend the low sodium shelled sunflower seeds or salt-free shell-less variety.

I love salt :frowning: I Eat shell less sunflower seeds also but I eat like handfuls at a time lol
