- Bring down lousy LDL cholesterol: just 8 - 13 nuts a day drop LDL by six per cent.
- Decrease your risk of a heart attack: 12 walnuts halves a day decreases the risk of a heart attack by 60 per cent.
- Lower your diabetes risks: If you eat an ounce of nuts or a couple tbsps of almond butter five times a week, your risk of type 2 diabetes drops by half.
- Nix extra waist: The healthy fat in about 6 walnuts halves starts a chain reaction that slows the rate at which your stomach empties. Eating them about 25 minutes before a meal helps you feel more satisfied by that meal.
