    To live longer and younger, eat five small fistfuls of nuts every week. These tasty nuggets will lower your risk of belly fat, diabetes, heart disease, and more. Eating nuts can even knock back heart-menacing LDL cholesterol by 10 points and high triglycerides by 20 points. The challenge is moderation. One fistful (about 1 ounce) has 160 to 200 calories, so don't overdo it. To fill up without filling out, pair nuts together with fruit, such as peach or apple slices, and sneak in a little peanut butter.
