Shelled, as shelling them can mess up my manicure.

depends on the nut. Pistachios have to be in the shell. Brazil nuts have to be out of the shell. Walnuts either way. However I remember when we celebrated St. Nicholas Day in early december (my mom was Czech) we always got the chocolates, fruit and nuts. The nuts were always in the shell-- walnuts, brazil nuts, almonds and hazel nuts. The fruit and nuts would become the 7 fruits on the table and the chocolates would be strung and put on the tree.

I like them in the shell too, but unfortunately, I've mastered quickly shelling pistachios by using a shell half to pry the shells open. It's not hard for me to shovel through a pound of pistachios in an afternoon. What can I say? Pistachios have always been a favorite of mine.

I go in the "in the shell" line. Nuts are so calorie dense that they go too quickly when one eats a preparer serving. Having to shell them as you eat makes it seem like much more of a snack.

I like them shelled, but I measure out what I am going to eat and put away the balance

I agree, I've recently started buying them in the shell and I eat a lot less that way too. Glad I've found a way to still enjoy them as a snack without over-eating.

I like both, but like you, I eat too many when they are not in the shell.

I like adding nuts to my diet. But I have found that when I buy nut meats I tend to eat too many calories. Now I buy only nuts in the shell. It seems like you are eating more and it takes longer to eat. today I had some in shell Pistachios. A large handful was only 1 and 3/4 ounces with the shell. After discarding the shell the nut meats only weighed 25g. But since it took me about 20 minutes to eat, I felt very satisfied on 140 calories for a snack. For me this is the way to go.

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.
