Context: It seems that nut consumption does not lead to weight gain in the general population. However, fewer studies have explored this relationship in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Key Findings

Key Findings: A total of 15 randomized controled trials in 199 individuals were explored. Authors found that nut consumption had no effect on weight or adiposity parameters in people with T2D.
