I am following a reversal diet, with a few deviations, but generally sticking to it, and I've seen some amazing results. Recently, though, I've been reading about almonds and found that in controlled studies almond consumption has been proven to reduce LDL cholesterol level and increase HDL cholesterol levels. Now this runs counter to most reversal advice, since almonds are high in fat, albeit unsaturated fat. I am beginning to wonder if incorporating them into my low-fat vegan diet may be helpful. I noticed from a variety of sources that they also reduce inflammation and blood pressure. I sometimes wonder if it wouldn't hurt to add these nuts in small quantities to my overall diet. Perhaps, if I keep the quantity very small so as to not go over the 10% daily intake of fat, these nuts would be beneficial.
