Almonds can Decrease Appetite and Stop Weight Gain!
(Ivanhoe Newswire) – Eating 1.5 ounces of dry-roasted, lightly salted almonds a day can decrease appetite and not increase body weight, according to new research from Purdue University.
The study included 137 adults who were at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. The participants were divided into 5 different groups: one control group which did not eat any nuts or seeds, a breakfast group and lunch group which ate almonds at those respective meals, and a morning snack group and an afternoon snack group which ate between meals. Participants were told to stick to their normal eating and exercise habits throughout the four-week study. Those who ate almonds reported decreased hunger, caloric intake, and did not show any weight gain.
