Weight management with nuts

Weight management with nuts

Tehran (ISNA) - Nuts are the ultimate health food as they're packed full of beneficial nutrients. There are many types of nuts that are available in stores such as NUTS FOR LIFE and NATURAL MOREISH, even in bulk and wholesale. These include almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts. It would be great to keep a stock of nuts at home or in your office. So you can buy nuts, and easily grab a healthy snack whenever you feel hungry.

Many campaigns are launched to create the culture of eating a diet rich in nuts and accordingly fast growing health food stores such as NATURAL MOREISH started to help people buy nuts online in Australia.

Nuts, whether adding them to your daily diet or swapping them for other snacks such as meat, fries, desserts and potato chips, may help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. So, if you haven't already added these little delights to your diet, then it is time to know their importance. In this article, we sought to gather information about the role of nuts in weight control.

Nuts have a wide variety of health benefits, and recent studies have been uncovering more and more of them. Increased daily consumption of nuts or any types of nut (including peanuts) is associated with less long-term weight gain and helps mitigate the gradual weight gain common during adulthood, according to a preliminary study.

The researchers reported that replacing 0.5 servings/day (14g) of less healthful foods with nuts may be an effective strategy for making attainable dietary modifications for the prevention of obesity.

Experts believe that maintaining weight is just as, if not more, important than losing weight if you need to. And, as the study suggests, nuts may help with weight maintenance.

While a lot of people believe that it’s normal to gain weight as you get older, we should be focusing on a healthy balance in our diet, staying away from processed foods, and getting regular exercise. When people enter adulthood, over time they have a gradual weight gain of about 1 pound a year. That extra 10 pounds after about 15 years is associated with health risks such as cancer and type 2 diabetes, experts say. They agree that preventing weight gain is a more effective strategy than trying to lose weight later.

Nuts are rich in fibre and contain high amount of protein and can help manage weight by satisfying hunger for longer. A small handful of nuts can result in less food being eaten later in the day, therefore helping control overall calorie intake.

Which nuts, how often & how much?

Losing weight can be made a lot easier with so many to choose from and you won’t struggle to find some nuts you can enjoy and include in a weight loss program.

Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts, pistachios or walnuts. Make a trail mix of all these nuts and have a handful of them daily. Don't forget to combine nuts with a healthy diet and some physical activity to lose weight effectively.

What to Look for When Buying Nuts?

Some people believe raw nuts are better than the roasted variety. If you’re one of these people, but prefer the taste of roasted nuts, then try dry-roasted nuts. You can buy dry roasted nuts online from NUTS FOR LIFE and NATURAL MOREISH. Skip those roasted in oil, topped with salt, and any that have added sweeteners. Also, avoid nuts that have added spices, as they may include chemicals used to create flavor.

There are many suppliers of different types of nuts out there. But not all of them adhere to industry standards. NUTS FOR LIFE and NATURAL MOREISH transport, prepare, and pack nuts with utmost caution to ensure safety and to maintain their natural taste.
