Do almonds cause weight gain? Whether it is good to eat almonds on diet?

Almonds have one of the hight count of calories within nuts. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific nuts, almonds seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other nuts.

Really hard to find higher calories count in nuts. Similar energy amount have only such products as brazil nuts, cashew nuts or chestnuts.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If almonds contain nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
