According to a study published on September 23rd in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention, and Health, people who regularly consume nuts tend to be at less risk of obesity and extreme weight gain. This information comes from researchers from the Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston who looked at three separate independent cohort studies with more than 140,000 participants collectively. Data from all three studies showed that participants with an increased intake of nuts were significantly less likely to be obese and hand an easy time losing weight, especially if food like red meat, French fries, processed meat, or potato chips were substituted with walnuts, peanuts, or other tree nuts.
