Eat Almonds, Drop Pounds

Staying away from nuts 'cause you think they're fatty? Not true. Eating a handful of almonds each day can actually benefit your health.

Guess what? Almonds can actually help you drop pounds -- in addition to having the most fiber out of the entire nut family. They contain tons of phytochemicals that have the ability to fight off disease, and are also rich in folic acid, which helps in the fetal development process. Eat a handful of almonds every day for maximum benefit -- or throw them in one of your favorite recipes. Yum!

I also heard that almonds can positively affect your memory! Guess a lot of midwives’ tales have a bit of truth in them!

I EAT ALMONDS EVERYDAY. I AM SEVENTY
YEARS YOUNG. NO MEDICINE, EAT WHATEVER I WANT. I KNOW IT IS NOT ONLY THE ALMONDS BUT I AM SURE THEY HELP. PEOPLE
SAY THE ONLY WAY TO TELL I AM OLDER THAN MOST IS I HAVE WHITE HAIR. MY COMEBACK IS “HOW DO YOU KNOW I DIDN’T BLEACH IT THIS COLOR?”

I have been eating almonds for months at the recommendation of my doctor. It has not help me to lose weight but I have been eating healthier overall and I certainly hope I see some results soon. Janine, I hope you are right, my memory is terrible! :-D
