Nuts are a great source of healthy fat. Do you need to gain weight? If you're trying to lose weight DO NOT EAT NUTS. Even if you're at a healthy weight you should limit all fatty foods (nuts, seeds, their butters, olives, avocado, oils). There are plenty of natural fats in whole foods (like oatmeal) and you don't need to supplement your diet with them to excess, which is how must people eat them.
