RE: Is it OK to eat nuts, seeds for the Kickstart?

I've been vegan (with a few exceptions) for a few years now. Have lost a bit more than 50 lbs but have been stuck at present weight for a few years and am not lossing as I wish. Put this down to nut consumption and lately peanut butter, not the best exercizer.
Have heard that a 1/4 cup nuts/seeds a day is OK and useful because of the omegas. Or should I cut out nuts for the next 21 days?
I'm with Oceandog on this one - that's just my body. I could eat peanut sauce or tahini sauce on my starchies and veggies every day but before long it would show up on my body - and it's the first place to look if I need to lose a little fluff.
And 1/4 cup is quite calorific. You might try first thing in terms of 1 - 2 Tablespoons a day, which would more than cut your consumption in half. Nuts are very calorie concentrated.
