You may have irritable bowel syndrome constipating type or perhaps something more insidious. At any rate, I would recommend that you discuss this with your family dr. And possibly with a gastroenterologist as well. Best wishes. ...Read more

However eating nuts and apricots are not ways in which cholesterol is increased. ...Read more

Substituted chocolates, biscuits and junk snacks with cashew nuts and almonds to lose weight. Will it help lose weight given nuts are high in calorie?

Yes!: Eating 3 oz. Of almonds a day instead of the same amount of calories from complex carbs leads to increased weight loss.

I ate cashews and noticed there's nuts in my stool? How can I know if I have malabsorption? My stool is mainly yellow, thin (changes) not solid and mucus. Sometime floats also having weird symptoms

STOP being: A STOOL WATCHER!!!!! MANY substances pass into the stool unchanged (eg nuts, corn, etc) and mucous is a NORMAL part of stool (excreted by an irritated colon)
"Floating " is due to FAT ingestion! So COME ON NOW!!!! STOP WATCHING and if you CAN'T discuss this with your Primary Care Provider (PCP)

Hope this helps!
