Many Metabolic Balance® Plans have Nut and Seed combos as a protein option. Nuts and seeds are another nutritional powerhouse, and a great alternative to animal proteins and cereals. When you combine almonds with either pumpkin or sunflower seeds, you’ll get a well balanced amino acid (protein) profile.

Fatigue, Anxiety, Irritability, Depression, Cravings, Hunger, Cramps, Headaches, Heartburn, Joint Pain, Back Pain, Constipation--- If you put any of these symptoms into Web MD (which we all know is never a good idea), the litany of illnesses that would pop up is enough to drive anyone into a tailspin.
