Almonds: A Healthy Snack to Curb Your Appetite

If you have a hard time controlling your eating, almonds are a great, healthy option according to a new study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

….eating 45 grams (1.5 ounces) of dry roasted or even lightly salted almonds every day reduces hunger, improves your body’s vitamin E intake and monounsaturated fats – the good kind – all without increasing body weight. Source

137 Adults at risk for diabetes were studied by Purdue University. All of those participating reported less hunger pangs after consuming almonds.
