Nuts are a very popular food.
They're tasty, convenient and can be enjoyed on all kinds of diets.
Despite being high in fat, they also have a number of impressive benefits for your health (and weight).
What Are Nuts?
Nuts are technically considered a fruit. However, unlike most types of fruit, they aren't sweet and are high in fat.
They contain a hard, inedible outer shell that usually needs to be cracked open to release the fruit inside.
Fortunately, you can buy most nuts from the store "pre-shelled" so that you don't have to crack them open yourself.
Here is a list of some of the most commonly consumed nuts:
