A recent study over a long period of time with over 100,000 people and analyzed by habits. shows eating nuts every day decreases health issues by 20%.  Here is the study.

Contrary to myth, nuts do not make you fat as this study confirms.  In fact nuts have a higher protein to sugar level than any snack.  The study was done regardless if the nuts were roasted, dry roasted, salty, unsalted or grown on a tree or in the ground.

Also you want to increase the good fat, lower the bad fat and lower your sugar intake.  Nuts help you achieve that.

The squirrel above looks fat because he is about to hibernate and go without food for 6 months.

So nuts to you!

  1. Nuts do it for me :). I seem to have become quite attached to them, having a handful every day. And my weight is remaining stable at my goal weight for the first time in 25 years – yay!
