Hard to tell: Everything in moderation is okay. There are no "super foods" or miracle foods that help people loose weight. Avoid advertising that emphasizes one food as a successful therapy for weight loss.

Maybe not: Helpful weight loss foods are natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (without salad dressing). A cashew is a delicious nut, and nuts have protein and fat, which means more calories. Just like with peanut butter, a little is good, but a lot would be bad. A calorie is a calorie, regardless of where it comes from.
