Should you look at a nut as a protein or fat? Nuts are actually a combination, but let me explain. 

When comparing different kinds of nuts, you can see that certain nuts are way more of a fat than a protein, but there is some protein. Many people also don’t realize that nuts have carbs as well, it’s low, but there are some carbs, and they can add up. 

All of these nuts that we are going to look at today can fit into the keto diet. However, if you’re trying to lose weight, you might not want to go crazy eating pistachios because they’re higher in carbs. But, if you want to gain weight while still being on a keto diet, pistachios might be a good type of nut to focus on. If you want to lose weight, macadamia nuts may be a better choice. Pecans are low in oxalates, while almonds are higher in oxalates. So, if you’re prone to kidney stones, you may want to avoid almonds.
