I can tell you that after years of staving off hunger pangs in the afternoon with foods that were less than an appropriate weight began to add up on my small frame. While the weight gain did not happen over night the wrong choices I had made led to the demise of a once petite person. There are so many great foods out there to munch on, but when you let your body get too hungry it just begins to crave any and everything bad, sugars, sweets, junk foods, foods high in calorie, pretty much anything you can shove on in. Rest assured there is a healthy way to snack that can stop the hunger pangs, lose weight and lower your cholesterol and I might say it’s time to call out the nuts. Lavishly live healthy eating out loud and munch on these crunchy sensations. ALMONDS Once, long ago when I tested out the South Beach Diet, I began to love almonds, they seemed to be my saving grace in a diet that was odd beyond anything I had tried. I appreciated the true crunch of this nut and the fact that I felt full for a while after eating. I simply kept a pocketful of nuts with me and just munched.
I was losing weight without a problem. I eventually became disenchanted with the South Beach and I also forgot about some of the good habits I had learned…ALMONDS. Has my cholesterol dropped? You bet. Do I still feel hungry after a good handful of almonds? No. I also drink a huge glass of water to flush the dry taste out of my mouth and I assume this helps me feel full! How many almonds do I eat for a serving? I usually have 25-40 almonds in a day. I keep them in my pocket and munch as needed. When I am out that is the end of the snacking and generally I am full. I have no been eating junkie crackers or anything sweet, but I do toast my almonds in the oven.
Get ready to snack healthier this year with a nice handful of almonds! You have nothing to lose, but weight and less cravings for junk food! Lavishly living food out loud includes pockets of these little gems, and then you can munch and crunch on them day long as a treat! Nut out!
