Are nuts good or bad for you and your weight loss? Nuts are usually not recommended for most people because of their high calorie and fat content. However the monounsaturated fats found in nuts are good for your heart and general health. They are great sources of fiber, vitamins, iron and other minerals. If you love to munch on nuts now and then, make sure that you choose walnuts and almonds over other varieties. Walnuts are high in omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and magnesium whereas almonds are loaded with nutrients and are comparatively lower in fat content as well. Garnish your salad with a few nuts, enjoy a nut based dip or simply have a handful of nuts with raisins as a snack. That way, you give your body a lot of nutrients without feeling guilty afterwards about the calories.
