How many cashews can I eat a day?

Each ounce of cashews has 163 calories, which is only 16 to 18 cashew nuts, so it's easy to eat multiple servings in one sitting if you aren't careful. You need to cut 500 calories out of your diet each day to lose one pound per week, and this will be hard to do if you eat too many servings of cashews in one sitting.

Subsequently, one may also ask, can eating too many nuts be bad for you?

Unfortunately, though, the trick also works on humans, causing gas and bloating if you eat too many. If that isn't bad enough, eating too much fat—found abundantly in nuts—at one time can lead to diarrhea, says Alan R. Gaby, MD, author of Nutritional Medicine.

Is it fattening to eat nuts?

Nuts are good sources of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They also pack a fairly weighty caloric punch. However, epidemiological data consistently shows that high nut consumption is associated with lower incidence of obesity.
