Almonds are a great snack to aid in weight loss. Nuts, in general, were given a bad name because of their high fat content, but recent studies show that those who ate almonds at least twice a week were 31% less likely to gain weight than those who never ate them. They also showed a 62% greater reduction in body mass index score and a 56% greater reduction in body fat. Nuts help in weight loss because of their nutrient density. Nuts are packed with nutrients that make you feel fuller longer and help fight against food cravings.
A handful is all it takes! For a tasty mid-day snack that helps keep the waistline down, try almonds for a great healthy treat.
