This New Study Just Discovered The #1 Weight Loss Lie About Eating Nuts

You might find this such a conflicting point about eating nuts: They're so good for you, but they're high in calories and fat (even though that fact is so often followed up with, "But it's healthy fat!"). If you've ever experienced this struggle, now may be time to rejoice with a handful of nuts. Authors of a new weight loss study are revealing their revolutionary finding: Not only do nuts not cause weight gain, but they may actually turbo-boost your slim-down efforts.

A nutritional sciences doctoral student at the University of Toronto performed a four-year meta-analysis that's been published in Obesity Reviews.

After they ran statistics to ascertain the quality of the data they had, Nishi concluded: "Overall, we found there is no association between nuts and weight gain," adding, "In fact, some analyses showed higher nut intake associated with reductions in body weight and waist circumference."

Sievenpiper affirmed the discovery, stating, "That's a good indication of no harm from nuts relative to weight gain—no more than any other foods—and there may indeed be a benefit of weight loss in addition to the other widely acknowledged health benefits of nuts."

Both researchers shared that they frequently eat a handful-sized amount of nuts. In particular, Nishi admitted to eating more now "especially due to the evidence supporting their health benefits, but also because of their versatility in the kitchen and on the go."

Other research recently discovered that one nut may be most effective at fighting inflammation.
