Good nuts and Bad nuts!
Avoid nuts packaged or roasted in oil, instead eat them raw or dry roasted. But be careful, roasted nuts may have been heated in hydrogenated or omega-6 unhealthy fats, or high temperatures can destroy their nutrients.
The mix of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber walnuts provide will help you feel full and suppress your appetite.
While all nuts contain the heart-healthy omega-3 fats, walnuts (14 halves contain 185 calories), they have high amounts of alpha linoleic acid (ALA). Research has suggested that ALA can help heart arrhythmias. According to a study funded by the California Walnut Commission, walnuts are as effective as olive oil at reducing inflammation and oxidation in the arteries after eating a fatty meal. We recommend 8 walnuts per day to achieve similar benefits.
