Pistachios are weight management friendly as they are relatively low caloric food compared to other nuts. Because pistachios are loaded with proteins and fiber, they keep you fuller for longer. When given an option, pick the pistachios that are in the shell. Not only their nutrients are more preserved, but also it takes time to hull the shell helping you eat more mindfully. Also, the shells are a visual example of how much pistachios you actually ate and add bulk in your eyes helping in not overeating.
