How Walnuts Could Affect Weight Loss

Looking to lose weight? You may want to try going a little nuts. I'm Shelby with your latest health news. A new study from the University of California
at San Diego (UCSD) found that when women ate diets containing the type of unsaturated
fat found in walnuts and olive oil, it helped them lose weight. It also helped them improve their cholesterol
levels. Unlike most nuts, walnuts primarily contain
polyunsaturated fat. They also contain a significant amount of
alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid. Because all participants in this study were
women, researchers said a walnut-rich diet may not have the same effects in men. Lead study author said in a press release
quote,"Considering the results of this study, as well as previous walnut research on heart
health and weight, there's something to be said for eating a handful of walnuts a day." Speak to your doctor about incorporating more
nuts into your diet.
