Almonds Aid Weight Loss

While a serving of Almond Joy candy bar delivers 9 grams of saturated fat, 21 grams of sugar and 220 calories — not a happy outcome — there's non-stop joy for obese people if they consume a bit less than 2 ounces a day of plain, raw, unsalted almonds for 12 weeks.

That's the conclusion of researchers who pooled data from 37 studies to figure out just what benefits you can get from eating these is nutrition-packed beauties.

Their findings, published in the journal Obesity Reviews, show that eating almonds daily helps you lose weight, achieve a healthier waist circumference, shed body fat, and reduce your hunger. (Other research shows that true of walnuts, too!)

What's in almonds that aids weight loss?

One serving (about 23 nuts) delivers vitamin E, fiber, biotin, monounsaturated fats, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and phytonutrients such as flavonoids.

This combination of nutrients helps improve your microbiome and reduce inflammation, which in turn improves metabolism, helps control glucose levels, and allows you to gain more nutrition from the foods you eat — thus reducing hunger.

And they aren't just good for adults working to reclaim their health.

A recent study in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition found that when youngsters at risk for developing prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes eat almonds daily for 12 weeks, it lowers bad LDL cholesterol levels and improves A1c (long-term glucose levels), offering some protection from developing the conditions.
