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.”
