Portion Control

While many people are concerned that consuming nuts will lead to weight gain, it all comes down to portion control. Try buying 100-calorie packs so that your portions are accounted for ahead of time, or simply aim to eat no more than a small handful (about a shot glass full) to stay on track. Avoid salty, roasted, and flavored nuts and opt for the raw kind that have no additional ingredients to ensure you get all the health benefits and none of the unhealthy excess.
