I just checked on the USDA database and 14 halves (1 ounce) is definitely 185 cals. So just go by that.
Something like "14 halves" is not a great way to measure. Are ALL walnuts the same size? Of course not. The reason they say 14 walnut halves is because the USDA has determined that 1 ounce of walnuts is about 14 halves. So go by the ounce measurement instead. And for better accuracy (definitely a good thing in a high-calorie food like walnuts!) use grams. So 28 grams of walnuts have 185 calories.
ETA: Actually 28 grams of walnuts have 183 calories. hehehe.

I go by what a serving is on the bag of walnuts, and it comes out pretty muc what it is on the counter. I think mine went by 1/4 cup. I am not sure, because I ate all my walnuts.
