>Eat Almonds

>Nuts are now the talk of many a diet plan, but did you know that they can be a life saver!
Almonds contain high levels of cholecystokinin a hormone associated with satiety.

It is expecially true of women more than men, that almonds give a woman a feeling of satisfaction upon eating them- and they feel full longer.
There is ongoing research that the act of chewing almonds releases the cholecystokinin hormone- thus can enhance weight loss when combined with a low-fat, low calorie diet plan.

Research suggests that almonds  provide heart health, protection from Alzheimer’s and colon cancer.
Buyer tips: look for almonds in the shell that do not rattle when you shake them!! Remember to count them too- you need to eat about 10 almonds for a serving.
