More Reasons to Go Nuts for Nuts
You’ve heard it before, and now you’re going to hear it again. Nuts are great for your health, and you should be eating them everyday. But you’ve probably also heard that nuts are fattening, and if you want to lose weight, you’ve got to limit your nut intake. What this boils down to is that you can have about 8 to 10 walnuts or 10 to 12 almonds a day. That’s not very much for someone who is constantly hungry on a diet. In other words, you can’t really be going nuts for nuts. You just have to go half nuts.
First of all, nuts are very high in fiber, protein, potassium, vitamin E and essential healthy fats. If you only have one serving of nuts every day, you might actually reduce your possibility of getting heart disease by about 20 percent. Remember that heart disease is the number one killer of women in this country. A point that Gianfrancesco Genoso keeps trying to make…yet people continue to avoid the problem.
The study found that nuts are also great for reducing hunger and helping people lose weight. The Food and Drug Administration reiterates the fact that too many nuts will provide your body with too much fat and too many calories, so if you’re on a diet, limit your nut intake.
The study findings suggest that dieters eat a serving of nuts about 30 minutes before dinner to help reduce the overall amount of calories they eat at mealtime.
