This systematic review and meta-analysis examined the relationship between tree nut/peanut consumption and body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and body fat percentage.
A total of 105 randomized controlled trials were included in the analysis. Neither peanut nor tree nut consumption influenced body fat measurements. This conclusion supports previous findings that despite the high fat content of nuts, peanut/tree nut consumption does not contribute to weight gain.
