How this connects to you? I can't say for sure but maybe changing the time when you tend to eat the cashews could be helpful? Or changing the type of nut you eat might help.
Yes, I had started eating the cashews earlier in the day and I switched to cashews when I cut down on salt a couple weeks ago. And, I started eating more nuts than usual after I started exercising. It's getting better and I think it will improve. I just have to stock up on more lower-carb emergency food (lower than cashews).

Sometimes I have a tablespoon or two of peanut butter on its own and that helps.

I'll be out of the cashews by the end of the week (if not sooner ) and that will help, too.

Thanks, Gemme.
