We know almonds taste great and they’re chock-full of protein and healthy fats. But can nuts actually help with weight loss?
The most common claim about almonds as a weight-loss tool is that they’re satiating, meaning they can prevent overeating. This study found that among dieters, those who supplemented their diets with almonds lost more weight than those who supplemented their diets with complex carbs.
And this study found that subjects who snacked on almonds every day didn’t gain any weight, even though they consumed hundreds of extra calories daily from the almonds. The scientists behind the study believe that’s because the almonds kept them from feeling hungry between meals.
