Is it possible to gain weight from consuming too many nuts? At first, people think nuts are a healthy choice because they’re keto-friendly. But, not all nuts are low in carbs. 

On keto, you want to aim to have between 20-50g of carbs per day. The more you want to lose weight, the lower you want your carbs to be. It can be easy to eat a lot of nuts without realizing it. 

• Peanuts 1 cup (146g) - 24g carbs 

• Peanut butter 1 cup (258g) - 50g carbs 

• Pistachios 1 cup (166g) - 35g carbs 

• Almonds 1 cup (146g) - 14g carbs 

• Almond butter 1 cup (258g) - 21g carbs

• Pecans 1 cup (146g) - 4g carbs 

Thanks for watching! I hope this helps explain how you can gain weight from consuming too many nuts.
