2. Great For Weight Loss

Nuts are often high in fat, which leads to an assumption that they're a bad choice if you're trying to lose weight, but almonds might actually be a good addition to a fat loss goal. A 2021 study found that almonds are the only nut positively associated with weight loss.

Almonds contain a good deal of protein and fiber, gram for gram. Foods rich in these nutrients help the body feel and stay fuller for longer; decreasing excess snacking can help with fat loss.
