did the study indicate whether the almonds were roasted or salted or raw?

It seems as though they should have fed the "placebo" group something with a similar nutritional profile to the almond. For example, pistachio nuts -- not a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, meal. Maybe it wasn't the almonds, but the added fat, 60g of almonds have about 28g of total fat.
