Fit Food: Chew On This...

Kate and I are nuts over nuts. Which is why this new study using almonds caught my eye... Chewing them 25 or 40 times before swallowing led to significantly more unsaturated fat than those who chewed the almonds only 10 times before swallowing, according to findings presented last week at the 17th European Congress of Obesity in Amsterdam and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Chewing 40 times was found to suppress hunger and elevate the feeling of fullness more than 25 chews. Furthermore, two hours after consumption, hunger levels were higher and fullness levels were lower after 25 chews than after 10 and 40 chews, according to researchers. Okay, so, two takeaway: nuts = good, chewing your food thoroughly = very smart! Photo grabbed from HealthAliciousNess.com at flickr. Posted by Liz
