1/4 cup is a reasonable single serving. I usually have 2 to 3 of that size servings throughout the course of a typical day. The fats in "raw" or dry-roasted nuts (and other unrefined plant-based foods) is perfectly healthy, and quite vital to the body and health. Avoid the nuts/seeds that are "roasted" in chemically-refined oils of any type, however (read ingredients). If you are worried about gaining body fat weight, then you need to worry about your refined sugar/grain/starch consumption first and foremost, more than anything else by far.
