    Eating almonds and nuts has been associated with weight loss.

    A recent study found that people extract 32% fewer calories from almonds than what is listed on the label.

    A one ounce (28 gram) serving of almonds provide 129 calories rather than 170 calories as previously thought.

    This helps to explain why eating almonds are associated with weight loss.
