Nuts are a very popular food.

They're tasty, convenient and can be enjoyed on all kinds of diets.

Despite being high in fat, they also have a number of impressive benefits for your health (and weight).

What Are Nuts?

Nuts are technically considered a fruit. However, unlike most types of fruit, they aren't sweet and are high in fat.

They contain a hard, inedible outer shell that usually needs to be cracked open to release the fruit inside.

Fortunately, you can buy most nuts from the store "pre-shelled" so that you don't have to crack them open yourself.

Here is a list of some of the most commonly consumed nuts:

Almonds

Brazil nuts

Cashews

Hazelnuts

Macadamia nuts

Pecans

Pine nuts

Pistachios

Walnuts

Although peanuts are technically legumes like peas and beans, they are often referred to as nuts because they have similar nutrition profiles and characteristics.

Now let's look at the top 8 health benefits of eating nuts.
