To control your appetite between meals, snack on a small handful of nuts. They’re heart-healthy and waistline-friendly.   
Daily Dose
Do you still shun heart-healthy nuts, believing that their fat content is going to expand your waistline? Well, don’t! Research shows that eating nuts in moderation can actually help you maintain your weight. The trick, of course, is figuring out exactly what an appropriate serving looks like — and then sticking to it. In general, a handful of nuts, or about an ounce, translates to a single serving. If you have a tough time eyeballing it, though, you may want to try the handy Nut Bowl measuring system for perfect portion control. And lest you think that only some nuts are nutritious, we’ve got good news for you: All nuts, from almonds to pistachios to pecans and even macadamias, have plenty of cholesterol-lowering nutrition like fiber, unsaturated fat, vitamins, minerals and plant sterols packed into them.
