FWIW, I find eating nuts after meal is more dangerous than eating on empty stomach. I sometimes crave something crunchy after dinner and eat some almonds and nuts. Well, I intend to eat a few but I usually end up eating at least three times as much as I intend to. I lack the willpower to control my portions when almonds are involved. However, the night before, I was waiting for my husband for dinner. I was hungry so I drank two glasses of semi skimmed milk and ate some (I don't know how much but maybe more than 30) almonds while waiting. When he came home, he said he wasn't hungry, and I realised that I wasn't hungry at all either! I did not crave anything all night and I wasn't still hungry until lunch next day. I could have eaten the same number of almonds after dinner and I am sure I would not feel any fuller. By the way, I am off the oil these days because I have a cold, so the AS I experienced was not a result of oil.
