We ALL know why diets fail. Most of them are nearly impossible to stick to.
You start out strong. But then all the ‘RULES” get in the way, and you crash and burn.
If you’ve experienced that frustration before I’ve got some news for you today, you’re going to want to stick around for.
It’s not a diet. There’s nothing crazy to follow. No big rules. No major changes.
This ONE LITTLE TRICK could give you many of the protections of a major dietary change, with pretty much no effort at all.
You can help prevent…
- heart attack
New research has revealed how a simple, inexpensive, and beloved snack can cut your risk of all that and then some.
And all you have to do is eat it twice a week or more.
Nutty idea slashes heart and stroke risk
It’s evening TV time. You curl up on the sofa and tune into something that can help you escape all the craziness of the world, even if it’s just for an hour.
In one hand, the remote. In the other… well…
There it is: That TV snack.
Maybe it’s something that’s not too bad for you, like some homemade popcorn or a piece of fruit.
But if you’re like most folks, it’s probably something a whole lot worse. Chips. Cookies. Or perhaps a slice of sugary cake.
Well, it’s time to give your evening snack a makeover. Out with those cookies and chips and in with something you almost certainly ALREADY love.
I’m talking about NUTS. They’re the perfect snack. And not ONLY because they taste terrific.
The new study finds eating nuts at least twice a week could slash your risk of death from a heart attack or stroke by nearly a fifth.
Get the MOST out of your nuts
Of course, that’s just ONE of the many benefits making nuts your go-to snack can deliver.
Other studies have found they can help with just about every other chronic and deadly disease out there, cutting your risk for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity, and more.
The type of nut doesn’t appear to matter too much, either.
The most popular nuts in the new study included walnuts, almonds, pistachios, and hazelnuts. But you can go ahead and enjoy all your OWN favorites with just one exception.
Pass on the flavored, coated, candied nuts, and nut blends out there.
That means no honey-roasted nuts and no “pumpkin spice” ones either. (Yes, I actually saw those in Target the other day.)
In fact, you might want to avoid ALL of those canned-and-bagged roasted nuts, even the unflavored ones.
See, once nuts are cracked open, they start to oxidize. And as they oxidize, they begin to lose all of the healthy minerals and other compounds locked inside. Their healthy fats can even turn less healthy.
So the best way to eat nuts is the old-fashioned way. Get them fresh, raw, and still in the shell. Then break out the nutcracker and go nuts.
