What 100 Calories Looks Like: Nut Edition

Nuts have always been my go-to snack. I keep bags of homemade trail mix everywhere — in my gym bag, my desk drawer at work, even in the car. Although a great source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, they're also high in calories. If you're not careful, you can end up racking up hundreds of calories with only a few bites.

Don't be bummed, bails---I eat probably 400-500 calories' worth of nuts per day and I'm pretty thin. There was a study done that showed that women who eat 500 extra calories from nuts don't gain weight. I think the combo of fat and fiber helps you to not absorb all the calories in them.

13 walnuts = 100 cals? I thought about 4 made 100.
