Almonds – The “Crunch” for a Flat Belly

almonds

This article was on TheStar.com today – “The crunch that makes you slim“.  Interesting highlight:

“People who crunched a small serving of almonds 40 times quelled hunger better than when the same amount of nuts were crunched 10 or even 25 times. Our advice: More crunching is better.”

Why, you ask?

“How does more crunch equal more satisfaction? It’s possible that the mere act of chewing switches on your brain’s satiety centre (might be why you can eat more Twinkies than you can carrots). In fact, even the act of chewing gum helps people feel full longer, have fewer hunger pangs, have fewer cravings for sweets, and eat fewer afternoon snacks than people who don’t chew the stuff.

The moral of the story is to include crunchy healthy food at every meal and snack to lose weight!
