    Eating almonds and nuts is associated with weight loss.

    A recent study found that approximately 3% fewer calories were absorbed from the daily diet when people incorporated 1.5 ounces of almonds in their daily diet.

    This means that for people consuming a diet of 2000 to 3000 calories per day, they would absorb 60-90 fewer calories.
