Not all nuts are created equal. Pistachios are one of the lowest-calorie and lowest-fat nuts out there, says Zuckerbrot. And because of that, you’ll get to eat more of them. A 1-ounce serving equals 48 pistachios, while 28 peanuts or 22 almonds set you back the same number of calories. Pistachios can also help protect your ticker: “Almost all of the fat found in pistachios are heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, which when consumed in combination with a healthy diet may reduce the risk of heart disease,” says Zuckerbrot.
