Anything strike you about this photo (from the February 2011 issue of Shape Magazine)?
“An ounce of nuts has around 170 calories plus healthy fats, fiber, and protein to satisfy you,” reads the caption. No argument there. Just don’t use this photo as a guide to portion size! The bag of nuts shown in the photograph contains at least six ounces of nuts…over 1,000 calories worth. (Maybe it’s her snacks for the entire week.)
A one ounce serving of nuts is about 1/4 of a cup, or a small handful.
