I'd like to know the serving of all types of nuts (peanuts, cashews, almonds, etc..)

How about the other nuts?

There are too many different kinds of nuts to list them all here. Have you tried looking them up on this site?

Yup, iv'e also tried "googling" it.

bobbyj, maybe you should invest in a food scale to avoid having to CC and google to find weights of servings for nuts and other foods you'll probably eventually need to figure out?

Not much.  If you don't have a scale, about 1/8 of a cup to an ounce packed full.  That'd probably be good for shelled peanuts.  For bigger nuts which don't pack very well, probably a short 1/4 cup's worth.

I work for a nut company and here's what i know:

1 oz Shelled peanuts is about 35 pieces.

1 oz mixed nuts (cashews, pecans, almonds, hazels etc.) are about 16-17 pieces.

Hope this helps.

20 pecan halves to an ounce.
get a scale if you want to be close to accurate.  Buying a food scale, digital, was the best think I ever did for being honest with myself about what I was eating.  I lost 119 lbs in the process, too.
