ALMONDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS?

Can you believe it? Studies have shown that people who eat a serving of almonds at least twice a week are less likely to gain weight! Almonds are high in calories so eat no more a small handful a day. There are various types of almonds available but you should stick to the whole roasted ones and avoid the candy-coated ones! Here are more benefits of almonds:

  • Almonds are also high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that fights the effects of the sun.
  • Almonds are high in monounsaturated "good" fats that help to lower cholesterol. When you add almonds to your healthy, low-fat diet, you can reduce your chances of heart disease by 30% to 45%. Stay away from salted almonds though as salt may raise your blood pressure.
  • Almonds are a quick source of protein. 1/4 cup of almonds provides as much protein as an egg.
