    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.”
