Nuts and Weight Loss

A new study out of Australia illustrates the value mono and polyunsaturated fats have with weight loss.

The study shows that consumption of nuts can facilitate weight loss if you pay attention to total calories and nutrient composition.

This study simply underscores a large body of science that supports MUFA’s and PUFA (mono and polyunsaturated fats) as essential lifelong weight management nutrients.

Mono and Polyunsaturated fat consumption helps insulin signaling, hunger control and hormone balance.

The trick with mono and polyunsaturated fats (nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocado, olives ) is controlling energy intake from other sources.


1.    Never eat lots of nuts with simple sugars in the same meal.

2.    Limit consumption of nuts in the evening

3.    Ad a bit of L-carnitine and Coq10 with your increase of nut consumption.

4.   Do not increase consumption of nuts without cutting back consumption of processed carbs.

Rule of Thumb: Nuts help with weight loss IF you watch your total energy intake.
