Nuts as a Weight Loss Tool

Don’t be Nuts, Eat Nuts

Nuts, which are considered a Super Round food, are compact power-packed nutrients that should not be overlooked on any healthy weight loss plan.

Sure, nuts are caloric, but new studies show that those who eat nuts regularly tend to have less body fat.

Why Nuts Are Diet Friendly

  • Eating nuts decreases your appetite so that you will eat less during the course of a day.
  • Turns out that our bodies cannot absorb all the fat in nuts, meaning up to 20 percent of the fat in nuts will be pooped out.
  • Some studies show that nuts can increase one’s metabolism by more than 10 percent.

Secret to Eating Nuts on a Diet

The key to adding nuts to your diet is to eat them in place of less nutritious foods, rather than in addition to other food. Instead of munching  on carb-filled snacks between meals, eat a palmful of raw, unsalted nuts.

Number of nuts in a 1o ounce serving:

  • Almonds: 20-24
  • Brazil nuts: 6-8
  • Cashews: 16-18
  • Hazelnuts: 18-20
  • Pecans: 18-20 (halves)
  • Pine Nuts: 150-157
  • Pistachios: 45-47
  • Walnuts: 8-11

Almonds Rule in The World of Health

almondsNew studies show that a mere handful of almonds a day can lead to healthy cholesterol levels. These little Round (with a pointy end) morsels are nutrient-packed with vitamin E, riboflavin, magnesium, manganese and copper. In other words, almonds can lead to a healthier body.

The scientists behind almond studies also discovered that eating whole almonds with the skin, doubles their antioxidant cancer-fighting powers.

Eating 22 almonds will add more protein to your diet than an egg, plus with almonds you get much needed dietary fiber and their high-protein content eaten as a snack between meals can keep you from getting into that crazy-hungry-I-don’t-care frame of mind.

The best almonds are dry-roasted without added sugar or preservatives. Eat almonds as a snack, on a salad, or in assorted recipes to add protein to your diet. Know that almonds are calorie-dense, so eat just a few — no more than fits in the palm of your hand at one sitting.

For the freshest tasting almonds, store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. This will  keep them from becoming rancid and smelling like other foods. By refrigerating almonds, you will maintain their freshness for several months. By freezing them, they will last for up to a year.
