NUTS

People who ate nuts 7-times or more per week were 20% less likely to die during follow-up

People who ate nuts were 7% to 20% less likely to die during follow-up compared to people who did not eat nuts according to a study looking at data from 76,464 women in the Nurses’ Health Study (1980-2010) and 42,498 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2010).

Comparing those who ate nuts to those who did not, they found a:

  • 7% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts less than once per week
  • 11% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts once (1) per week
  • 13% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 2-4 times per week
  • 15% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 5-6 times per week
  • 20% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 7 or more times per week

“In two large, independent cohorts of nurses and other health professionals, the frequency of nut consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality, independently of other predictors of death,” the authors of the study concluded.

NUTS

4 servings of nuts per week associated with 37% lower risk of coronary heart disease

People who eat four (4) servings of nuts per week have a 37% lower risk of coronary heart disease compared to people who seldom or never consume nuts according to analysis of data from four (4) large epidemiological studies.

Each serving of nuts per week (one ounce or 30 grams) reduced the risk of coronary heart disease death by 8.3%.

“Collectively, the epidemiological data indicates nuts may be one of the most cardio-protective whole foods commonly eaten,” the authors of the paper concluded.

Simply eating more nuts could save many lives.

NUTS

Walnuts provide 21% fewer calories than previously thought

Eating nuts has been associated with weight loss.

A recent study found that people extract 21% fewer calories from walnuts than what is listed on the label.

A one ounce (28 gram) serving of walnuts provides 146 calories rather than 185 calories as previously thought.

This helps to explain why eating tree nuts are associated with weight loss.

NUTS

1.5 ounces of almonds daily reduces calories absorbed by 3%

Eating almonds and nuts is associated with weight loss.

A recent study found that approximately 3% fewer calories were absorbed from the daily diet when people incorporated 1.5 ounces of almonds in their daily diet.

This means that for people consuming a diet of 2000 to 3000 calories per day, they would absorb 60-90 fewer calories.

NUTS

3 ounces of almonds daily reduces calories absorbed by 5%

Eating almonds and nuts is associated with weight loss.

A recent study found that “When an 84-g[ram] serving of almonds [3 ounces] was incorporated into the diet daily, the energy digestibility of the diet as a whole decreased by [approximately] 5%.”

In other words, 5% fewer daily calories were absorbed for the entire diet.

“Therefore, for individuals with energy intakes between 2000 and 3000 [calories per day], incorporation of 84 [grams] almonds [3 ounces] into the diet daily in exchange for highly digestible foods would result in a reduction of available energy of 100–150 [calories per day],” the authors write.

“With a weight- reduction diet, this deficit could result in more than a pound of weight loss per month.”
