Comparing Different Nuts For Weight Loss

Introduction And Background
Weight loss is not at all complicated or confusing, as long as you have your facts straight and know what is good for you and what is bad for you. There are different diets, different methods and it might seem extremely confusing to you but the thing is that as long as the diet you follow has the essentials, it doesn’t really matter what diet you are following. You just need to eat less. And that is not very easy to do. Weight loss is easier said than done. It gets mighty difficult for a person who usually loves stuffing themselves to eat less and control the large appetite. However, there are foods which suppress the appetite. This is where nuts come in handy. Though small, they are actually pretty good for a dieter for weight loss. Read on further to find out the reasons why and see which nuts are better than the others.

Different Nuts
The variety of nuts will make you think that all of them are the same and having nuts is fine, no matter which one it is. The truth is, you have to be a little careful about them. There are some nuts which are not particularly very good for weight loss, such as chestnuts since they have more sugar in them than most. Pistachios are also high in sugar but then again, they are also good in the fiber amount as well. Different nuts will have different quantities of nutrients but what you want from nuts most in weight loss is the amount of fiber in it. Let’s compare different nuts and see what nutrients they can give and which one is perfect for weight loss purposes.

Almonds – The Most Obvious Choice
Almonds are the most obvious choice in a diet because for a nut, almonds have the most amount of fiber in them and we all know how helpful that is for weight loss. Fiber takes time to get digested which means that if you have eaten almonds, you’ll be full for longer periods of time which means that your appetite will be suppressed. This is why most people keep handfuls of almonds with them and eat it during dieting. It can help curtail their appetite and the fiber keeps them content. Almonds however have calories so it is better not to overdo on them. Have almonds in moderate amounts about two to three times a week.

Macadamia – The Least Obvious Choice
They are high in carbs and have the most number of calories. Macadamia nuts also have fiber in them but since their calorie content is high, it is best to stick to another option rather than opt for macadamia nuts. In some countries, these nuts are also the most expensive ones so it is not really worth spending money on for weight loss, especially if you have cheaper and better options at hand like almonds or cashews.

And Walnuts…
Walnuts have more calories than almonds but less than macadamia nuts. Their protein content is also high and fiber content is normal. However, their sugar content is lower than most nuts which is good for those who are diabetic but for weight loss purposes again, almonds are the better choice. A handful of almonds is what you need, not a handful of walnuts.

Brazil Nuts
They have the least amount of sugar but the calories are not that less. Brazil nuts though are very appetizing and also have the ability to keep your hunger at bay. Nonetheless, you need to be careful to not have a lot of them. That is the thing about nuts. You cannot overdo on it or eat a lot of it. You have to take extra care to just have little by little and that too not on a daily basis. Even almonds, the best of the nuts, have to be taken in moderate amounts for appetite suppression.

Appetite Suppression The Key
In weight loss, the key to everything is appetite suppression. If you have suppressed the appetite, that means you can easily stay away from food and control your cravings and follow your diet. What could be better than that? And what could be better than the thing that helps you do that? Nut are pretty terrific in appetite suppression. You can have just a handful of almonds and be good for a long period of time as compared to having a starchy meal and being hungry again after a little while!

The conclusion is that although you have to be careful with nuts because their calories are not very less, you can still utilize them carefully for weight loss because they can suppress your appetite. And although are nuts are good, almonds should be the top choice.
