3 Reasons Nuts Help Melt Fat

So you’ve heard that nuts are good for you, but is one nut better than the others and do they really boost weight loss?

Nuts are packed with nutrients. They vary depending on the nut but, generally speaking, all nuts offer 3 important things that help with weight loss:

1) A good dose of proteins

2) Healthy fats

3) Fiber (keeps your hunger in check)

2 Reasons You Should Be Snacking on Nuts Right Now

1. People who consume nuts regularly tend to report less hunger, this of course makes sticking to your meal plan easier.

2. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition noted that folks who habitually ate nuts showed lower total body weights than those who didn’t.

Top 4 Nuts for Health and Weight Loss

1. Walnuts 

Topping the list of healthiest nuts to include in your diet is walnuts. Walnuts are great because unlike the other nuts, they provide a hearty dose of the omega-3 fatty acids.

These fatty acids can help to improve insulin sensitivity, and create a leaner body.

Walnuts are also great for combating heart disease as they can help

  • lower your cholesterol levels
  • reduce plaque build-up
  • lower the level of inflammation in your body

2. Almonds 

Next on the list of nuts to include in your plan is the almond. Almonds tend to be higher in protein than other nuts, so can help with the repair and rebuilding of muscle tissue.

Almonds are also a great source of vitamin E.  This is a key antioxidant! Vitamin E can improve recovery rates, fight inflammation and age-related memory loss.

If that's not enough, it keeps your skin, hair, and nails looking their best too.

Be sure when purchasing almonds that you buy plain almonds, not roasted almonds or those with added flavoring or coating.

These will only add unwanted salt and/or sugar, making them a less healthy option for your fat loss diet plan.

3. Pistachios

An often forgotten about nut, pistachios should also be included in your diet plan. The great thing about these nuts is that since the shelling process takes time, this may mean you consume fewer nuts when snacking.

4. Pecans

Pecans are another nut that is a smart addition to your diet plan. They rank in the top 15 foods for their antioxidant levels, so they work hard to combat free radical damage and oxidation in your body.

And, pecans are a good source of

  • magnesium
  • zinc
  • iron
  • calcium
  • selenium

These are all nutrients you'll need to power up an active lifestyle

They’re also a high fiber nut, so a great one that will help to control your blood glucose levels.

When shopping for pecans, here again, look for plain pecans and not honey coated.

3 Tips To Keep Nuts Fresh Longer

1. Be sure that you store them in a sealed, air-tight container to maintain freshness.

2. Store somewhere dark, away from direct sunlight and warmth.

3. If you plan to keep them for longer than six months, place them in the freezer for storage purposes.

If you add small amounts of nuts to your diet plan, you will be on track to great health and faster weight loss success.

Yours in health,
