Almonds Help Weight Management


Almonds, an excellent dietary source of vitamin E, magnesium, fatty acids, and fiber are not only a great part of a healthy weight management program they help lower LDL cholesterol.  A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that when woman who ate 344 calories worth of almonds per day felt more satisfied and did not gain weight.  There is nothing worse for a person than eating a really light lunch thinking they are on a great diet only to have a power outage and food cravings set in by mid afternoon.  Eating enough quality fat at lunch helps prevent this problem.

This study helps to point out that the idea of fat restriction as the primary dietary guideline is not correct.  Certainly, eating too much fat is a problem.  However, eating high quality foods like almonds that contain other important nutrients help a person feel satisfied and prevent overeating at other times of the day.
