EAT NUTS!

Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.  They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and various other nutrients.  Studies show that nuts can help you lose weight, and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

In one study, almonds were shown to increase weight loss by 62% compared to complex carbohydrates
