    Natural PB/Almonds vs. Flax Oil

    I am eating a few tablespoons of Natural PB and an ounce of Almonds every day. My questions is: Do I need to take Flax Oil? or does what I need from Flax come from what I get in the PB and almonds?

    basically are the effects/benefits (of nuts vs. flax) the same or do I need both?

    Natural PB is higher in monounsaturates, flax is high in polyunsaturates, eat both.

    I wouldn't stop taking flax. I made that mistake around 4 weeks out. I was eating a tablespoon of npb and almonds, so I stopped taking my flax. A few days later I felt like SH*T! I mean I couldn't hardly get off of the couch. Started back on the flax and I steadily got my strength back. I won't ever make that mistake again.

    I have noticed this too. I think I have a big supply of flax coming my way . I really think I need to stay off the pb..

    I have been eating both, but to be honest I am sick to death of my Flax. I mix it with some casien protien (EvoPro) and it feels like I am forcing myself everytime to chug that down. It is just gross. On the other hand, I love my cottage cheese/natural PB mix (I usually have the as meal #5 before the flax). And was wondering if the natural PB and almonds do the same thing and provide what I need as Flax does, then to just ditch the flax completely and go with PB and almonds.

    Do they both give me the same nutrients and benefits? or are they completely different and give me different benefits?
