Nuts and weight loss.

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:

1.) PEANUTS

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.

2.) ALMONDS

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.

These are three options you could implement today.

so what are you waiting for go try them out now!, and comment below if any of these are your favorites or you have any other suggestions!

stay strong!

Throughout my entire life I struggled immensely with my weight some years i would be just about average sized enough to feel somewhat confident to be seen without a thick jumper on to hide my true size but most of the time,almost my whole life, i would be ashamed to even be seen in public but after deciding to start exercising and changing my eating habits I started to lose weight and after keeping up with my weekly exercises that take a virtually minuscule amount of time to complete, my weight problems are just problems of my past.
