Nuts are great for you. While they do have a lot of calories, these are the best quality calories because they are high in monounsaturated fat. Nuts have been shown to be very satisfying and this makes them a great choice for snacking. Instead of potato chips or crackers, have nuts. There's great research that shows you won't gain weight eating the nuts.


Even in those already eating a Mediterranean Diet, increasing the amount of walnuts a person ate was shown to lower total and LDL (bad) cholesterol an extra 6% over their already healthy diet. I love pistachios, for example, and there is a study showing similar improvement in cholesterol profiles when participants ate 20% of their recommended calories in pistachios. Studies with walnuts and almonds show the same results.
