So every now and then I go on a peanut butter binge, and this weekend was one of those times. I generally drain the excess oil off the top of the jar (actually I intentionally choose jars with a lot of separation so I can maximize the PUFA drainage - if it's too dry, I mix in some coconut oil). But anyway, when I overdo it with nuts - especially peanuts but other nuts too - I really feel the inflammation. It's messed up, I can feel the tissue around my eyes get puffier, I can feel an actual ache-y, sore feeling in my "love handles" area, seemingly in the fatty tissue.
I'm really only posting this because I'm curious about whether anyone else experiences this.
Is this related to the omega-6 PUFA content, like I'm assuming, or does someone have insight into another reason this could be happening?
