 Quotes from the Experts
Dr. John Guinard, Assistant Professor at University of California-Davis states that studies have demonstrated that without fat, satiety is impossible (satiety is the feeling of being satisfied or "full" after eating and is a major factor in how much and what quality of foods we choose to eat). Studies have shown that nuts are a good source to help the body reach satiety earlier and thereby consume less food.

"If you like nuts, I say help yourself. Enjoy. Forget the total fat…forget the percentage of calories from fat. Yes, nuts have a lot of oil. But they also happen to have a lot of nutrients that are absolutely essential to a healthy diet. Frankly, we should be encouraging people to eat nuts."
Frank Sacks, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School; taken from an article in Health Magazine, July/August, 1996.
 
Nuts Fight Heart Disease

Results from confirmed research strongly suggest that the frequent consumption of nuts protects against the risk of Coronary Heart Disease.
