Yes!: A single cup of pistachios is just a little bit more than 700 cal and has 55+ grams of fat so it's not a low fat or low calorie food. But wow, is this nut loaded with nutrition! so pistachios are a valuable addition to your daily snacks, but better to use unsalted and organic ones.

Calories and portion: The key to losing weight effectively is taking in fewer calories than you can burn. This results in weight loss. Women should restrict their calorie intake to 1200 a day. Men should restrict their calorie intake to 1500 a day. Portion control is essential. An easy way to understand portion control is to look on the back of any nutritional label. One serving size is always listed on the label.
