We’re on to our third entry in the fat-fighting foods series and the next item on our list is nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds are a great source of fat-fighting protein and dietary fibers. A two-ounce serving of peanuts, for example, contains 4.5 grams of dietary fiber.
Dietary fibers and fat-fighting proteins help in such a way that foods which are rich in these two take longer to empty from the digestive tract. The ‘chew factor’ which makes fibrous foods like nuts and seeds longer to eat also helps in curbing those unnecessary food cravings.
As long as you keep your consumption of nuts and seeds to an ample amount – as they are a little high in calories – then you should be good to go in your fight against fat. Nuts and seeds make for a healthy and filling snack for people who are always on the go.
Examples of the nuts and seeds that you can keep in stock includes:
• Macadamia Nuts
• Pine Nuts
• Pumpkin Seeds
• Sunflower Seeds
