Nuts & Weight Gain: It's Worse Than We Thought

user-pic

Just watched the revised and expanded video concerning nuts and weight on NutritionFacts.org. Very convincing. I don't see how you two can be looking at the same data and be reaching such different conclusions. What Dr. Greger shows is that nuts do NOT cause weight gain. His evidence seems pretty clear and I trust his judgement and ability to interpret the mountain of data that he presents. If you haven't seen the latest version you should check it out.

Nuts & Weight Gain: It's Worse Than We Thought

Jeff,
Thanks for the response. It seems that you and Dr. Greger are never going to fully agree about nuts. In the end your disagreement seems more a matter of emphasis. We all agree that eating a WFPB diet is the way to go. Nuts are good food but i guess we will have to agree to disagree about just how good they are and how much we should eat. I love nuts and I'm at a healthy weight so I will continue to eat what you low fat vegans would consider to be a horrifying amount. Not that it counts as any kind of scientific data but I have lost 70lbs over the last 4 years since adopting a WFPB diet that includes generous amounts of nuts, seeds, and avocado while also raising my HDL to 82 and lowering my LDL to 84. Keep up the good work! I will try not to let this controversy drive me NUTS.

Nuts & Weight Gain: It's Worse Than We Thought

Just wanted to point out there has been a new report by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluding nut consumption does not cause weight gain and may actually have a modest slimming effect. The report is based on a review of thirty-one studies in which subjects added nuts to their diet and replaced other foods with nuts. I happen to be terrible with computers so I can't link to the report but it was released by Reuters. Sorry to reignite this controversy but I couldn't resist. I doubt this will change many minds but I would still be interested to hear why this latest report doesn't hold water. Thanks
