Nuts are healthy, very health, they contain the “good” saturated fats and are very filling,too filling if you’re not careful!, but if you are trying to lose weight you should know that they are pretty high-calorie foods and as you know, weight is lost by burning calories (Approx. 3,500 calories to burn a pound).
Nuts, like avocados, are loaded with heart-healthy fats—but healthy doesn’t always mean you’ll get lean. A couple of beers and a few handfuls of nuts and you’ve racked up some serious calories—and diet damage.
If you want to lose weight, replacing a higher calorie snack with nuts can help you lose weight, for example switching a 200 calorie snack with 12 almonds (at 84 calories total) can help you lose about a pound a month as long as you don’t make up the lost calories in other meals.
If you want to snack smart, you’ll have to choose the best nuts to eat for weight loss.
Here’s a list of some you can choose:
While the classic nut butter shares some health benefits with other nut butters, there tend to be fewer healthy versions available on the market. Peanut butters are most often processed with hydrogenated oils and sugar, so make sure you check the label carefully.
Think of each almond as a natural weight-loss pill. Almonds, rich in the amino acid L-arginine, can actually help you burn more fat and carbs during workouts.
For optimal results, eat your daily serving before you hit the gym.
3.) BRAZIL NUTS
This tiny nut is pretty mighty! What makes the unsung hero of the nut world such a powerful health food? For starters, it’s the richest known food source of selenium out there, with just two of the tiny nuts providing more than a day’s worth of the mineral.
Brazil nuts are packed with health-boosters like copper, zinc, potassium, riboflavin, heart-healthy fats and magnesium.
