Do almonds make you burn more fat?

I am trying to lose weight and I read that almonds help to reduce cholesterol and increase the fat burning rate. Is that true? If yes, what is the daily amount I should take?
In studies, almonds have been shown to lower the levels of low density lipoproteins and raise the levels of high density lipoproteins. Almonds are also loaded with vitamin E, monounsaturated fat and fiber, and they have anti-inflammatory properties. But almonds do not increase calorie burning. It is fine to eat almonds more than once a day if you'd like, but be sure to count the calories in them and to eat a balanced diet in addition to almonds.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
