Dr. John McDougall’s article, Nuts Come in Hard Shells—for Reasons clearly explains why nuts (even a few almonds) are should not be part of your regular diet. Frequently new Slender For Life™ clients say “I thought nuts like almonds were good for you … they have healthy fat.” Healthy fat? The addition of an ounce of nuts a day (about 17 almonds) should cause some weight gain when the daily calories are otherwise unrestricted. An ounce of nuts means an additional 150 calories daily—that’s 4500 calories a month, which could represent a monthly gain of a pound and a half of body fat. In my book, Becoming Slender For Life, I write that we are designed to live primarily on carbohydrates, not fats. Nuts should be for special occasions such as Christmas. If you are in the habit of eating nuts, hypnosis can help you stop. You can find Nuts Come in Hard Shells—for Reasons in the Hypnosis Health Info Article Library.
Nuts Come in Hard Shells—for Reasons
Even though an ounce of nuts a day may not cause appreciable weight gain, nuts do not violate the laws of thermodynamics and the evidence shows adding more than an ounce daily without other calorie restrictions does cause weight gain. And excuse me! Who, when given permission, eats only one mouthful of nuts a day? ~ John McDougall, M.D.
My book, Becoming Slender For Life and it’s hypnosis CD set suggest a healthy eating strategy based on the teachings of Dr. John McDougall and the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
