Serving size is 1/4 cup

210 calories per serving

total fat: 21g
sat fat: 2g
total carbs: 4g
dietary fiber: 2g
protein: 3g

I eat about a cup a day..

and that's like 840 calories.. and I eat it like it's nothin' hardly.. I just can't imagine that many calories packed into a nut.

Yes, that's correct. It's foods like that that make me wonder how people say they have trouble eating enough.

Yea, but if you really want a calorie dense nut, try a brazil nut(they're those big ones). Each one has about 30 calories, you can easily put on 900 calories in 5 minutes without knowing it.

I'll have to look for them next time. Now that I have the pecans all used up. I have to down this bag of almonds first. Not really that great, 170 cals per 1/4 of a cap and like 15g of fat. =/

Oh well, I think I'll have to move it up to 1 1/4 cups a day.
