Eat Raw Nuts

Dr. David Jenkins of the University of Toronto
concluded, “Mixed, unsalted, raw, or dry-roasted nuts have benefits for both blood glucose control and blood lipids and may be used as part of a strategy to improve diabetes control without weight gain.” Those following a natural lifestyle will choose non-irradiated nut sources that have not been processed or altered in any fashion. A 2 ounce serving is recommend by him. Nuts have not been found to contribute to weight gain in his report.

Sugar instead or Nuts? No Thanks!

Jiff Whips and Peter Pan Whipped knock the calories down by adding air to the peanut butter, but they replace the fat with corn syrup solids and that's no bargain! Check the labels even on reduced fat varieties like Skippy, Jiff, and Peter Pan.
