Almond: The Magic Pill For Hunger, Weight Loss and Cholesterol

Healthy living compasssIntroduction
What are the three things that you are thinking about all the time? For most people, the number one thing is eating or snacking. The second is losing weight. And the third is that you want to be cutting back on your cholesterol levels.

Now what if I told you that I had a magic pill that does all three? It is a snack, it helps you lose weight, and it helps you cut down on your cholesterol. Have I discovered a magic pill that people have been waiting for? Well would you believe me if I told you that this magic pill is more commonly known as the almond!

Almonds
almondsI love almonds and any opportunity that I get I am eating them. The almond is the magic pill and this is one of the world's most amazing foods. They taste absolutely great, they are full of fiber, and they are a tremendous source of protein.  Almonds are a good source for vegetarians to get protein and with the fiber that they contain they digest slowly in your system making you feel fuller for much longer.  By feeling fuller longer you are much more likely to lose weight.

They can help you to reduce your cholesterol by approximately 9% and one of the reasons for this is that they contain one of the healthiest good fats that you can eat and this is a mono unsaturated fat. Now one thing about fats that you have to understand is deciding which has more calories. The options are the nasty saturated fats or the healthy unsaturated fats. The surprising answer is that they both have the same amount of calories, as fats have the same caloric count.

Healthy Fats

The reason for this is that almonds contain their own oil which makes it way to the top. This needs to be stirred before eating and you really need to try this with some whole grain toast. And I really cannot think of eating a healthier breakfast besides a whole grain cereal  Another example would be instead of regular ice cream, try to get the coconut milk ice cream.  The latter is much lower in calories and dairy free.

Conclusion
Remember almonds are the perfect snack and just a handful a day can lower your cholesterol, help you lose weight and they are just a great substitute for anything that could be considered bad for you like french fries or other unhealthy foods. Almonds are the perfect snack and certainly a miracle pill.
