An elegant study is presented, testing the appetite-suppressing effects of walnuts.
This is the fourth of a seven-video series on a fascinating phenomenon—why don’t nuts make us fat? I reviewed the balance of evidence in Nuts and Obesity: The Weight of Evidence, and introduced two theories in Solving the Mystery of the Missing Calories—both of which were not well supported by a study on peanut butter, which I detailed in Testing the Pistachio Principle. We finally seem to be getting somewhere, though we still haven’t accounted for all the missing calories. Next, we’ll check out the Testing the Fat-Burning Theory. For my crazy breakfast smoothie concoction, see A Better Breakfast.
