Healthy Foods: (Pt 3)

1. Almonds

The almond is a popular type of nut. It is loaded with vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium and fiber. Studies show that almonds can help you lose weight, and provide impressive benefits for metabolic health (5).

2. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are among the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. A single ounce (28 grams) contains 11 grams of fiber, and a large part of the recommended intake for magnesium, manganese, calcium and various other nutrients.

3. Coconuts

Coconuts are loaded with fiber and powerful fatty acids called medium-chain triglycerides.

4. Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts are very tasty. They are much higher in monounsaturated fats, and lower in Omega-6 fatty acids, than most other nuts.

5. Walnuts

Walnuts are highly nutritious and loaded with fiber and all sorts of vitamins and minerals.

6. Peanuts

Peanuts (technically legumes, not nuts) are incredibly tasty and high in nutrients and antioxidants. Several studies show that peanuts can help you lose weight (6, 7).

However, take it easy on the peanut butter. It is very high in calories and incredibly easy to eat excessive amounts of it.
