In recent times, you may have heard that nuts are a healthy, protein-rich snack that keeps you full in between meals. In turn, this full feeling nuts offer can keep us from eating too much at meal and snack time and help us lose weight. It should come as no surprise then that a recent study found that those who ate nuts often were less likely to be obese than those who did not eat nuts. Those who ate the most nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, were between one-third and one-half less likely to be obese. Just one ounce of nuts a day may be the key to getting your healthy lifestyle journey moving in the right direction!
