I’d be curious to hear if anyone experiences similar results. Even if the study was just a fluke, Nuts May Help Prevent Death (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-may-help-prevent-death/) by improving the function of our arteries (Walnuts and Artery Function- https://nutritionfacts.org/video/walnuts-and-artery-function/) and fighting cancer (Which Nut Fights Cancer? -https://nutritionfacts.org/video/which-nut-fights-cancer-better/) and inflammation (Fighting Inflammation in a Nut Shell- https://nutritionfacts.org/video/fighting-inflammation-in-a-nut-shell/).
Even eating nuts every day does not appear to result in expected weight gain (Nuts and Obesity: The Weight of Evidence:https://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-and-obesity-the-weight-of-evidence/), so enjoy!
In fact, in my Daily Dozen I recommend eating ¼ cup of nuts or seeds every day (or 2 tablespoons nut butter).
