Nuts and seeds (except chestnuts) are very high in fat. A balanced diet of very low fat plant-based foods is optimum for keeping cholesterol at good levels and protecting arteries.

If one chooses to eat nuts, the portion should be carefully controlled. Usually a maximum of one or two tablespoon-fulls daily.

Some research has said that walnuts offer the most benefits for heart health, but most other nuts - in very limited quantities - offer some benefits.

If you enjoy nuts, there's no reason not to consume a small amount. But they should not be considered something to eat to provide heart benefits. There are many other low-fat foods that are at least as beneficial.
