Nuts!: Nuts are good for you and an important part of a heart healthy diet. Just be careful about how many calories you're consuming. Also, the "obesity paradox" is the observation that, if you're staying fit (as you are), obesity by itself doesn't raise your heart risk (so long as you don't get diabetes or high blood pressure). This gets harder as you get older, though.
