Last week I blogged about the health benefits of nuts, including improved heart health, weight management, and a decreased risk of a variety of diseases.

For many people, snacking on nuts is an excellent way to satisfy hunger pangs and ward off binge eating later in the day. Personally, I find them particularly suitable for satisfying a sugar craving.

However, we can have too much of a good thing. A serving of nuts is roughly 1/4 cup or 150-200 calories. Limiting your portion is important for both your waistline and your digestion. Too many nuts can wreak havoc on even the most resilient guts.

Take a mental snapshot of this infographic for the next time you’re going “nuts” for nuts.
