Eat Almonds And Lose Weight



While almonds are a nut and are high in fat, they are also nutritious and can help with weight loss.

Studies found that people who eat almonds regularly weigh less than people who don't eat almonds.

Researchers conducted a study with 20 overweight women. By eating 2 ounces of almonds daily for 10 weeks it was found that the women gained no weight during that time.

The almonds reduce appetite by producing a satisfied feeling and also by decreasing the amount of total carbohydrates otherwise eaten by more fattening foods. The high fiber in almonds also reduced the amount stored by the body.

Other studies done at Purdue University show that by eating one to three ounces of almonds daily helps to lower cholesterol.

Almonds also increase the level of vitamin E and magnesium in the blood. Both of which are important to a healthy cardiovascular system.
