Our expert says:
Nuts are an excellent food being high in monounsaturated fats, but they do have rather a high energy content, namely about 580 kcal on average per 100g. If you only eat 30g a day, then you would obtain 174 kcal from such a portion, which works out to about 8% of your daily energy requirement. If you are trying to lose weight you need to reduce your daily energy intake to about 1500 to 1700 kcal and it may be more prudent to only eat your 30g portion of nuts every second day.
