This week I was invited to go to the EU Round Table Meeting for the Almond Board of California. Exciting stuff, not just because I like almonds. Here is some of what I learnt and liked… Almonds can help keep you satiated and although you may think they are high in calories, studies show that they can help with weight management. When added into the diet in a sensible portion size the research shows that people do not gain weight but adapt their calorie intake at other points in the day. A year long study showed adding whole almonds to the diet did not lead to weight gain. People ate more healthy fats and some people lost weight.
