Almost everyone is clear about what they can and cannot eat to lose some weight or at least stay and not gut. The problem is that this knowledge is in many cases obsolete or based on nutritional myths that are more than denied and overcome. This is the case of some foods that, despite being essential in a balanced diet, are rejected for fear of gaining weight. This is the case of nuts.
DO DRY FRUITS FAT?
It is true that nuts are very caloric, but several studies have already been carried out that show that they are not responsible for the weight gain that people suffer. In fact, ddieticians and nutritionists recommend increasing intake of these products for their multiple health benefits and for their high fiber content. However, not everything goes. exist some nuts that should never enter our pantry if we don’t want to bring the built-in float to the beach this summer. Here we explain what they are.
PEANUTS WITH HONEY AND SALT
They are not usually missing on supermarket shelves. It is peeled peanuts coated in honey and sprinkled with salt. Is a mix of flavors, sweet and salty, which drives many people crazy. However, it is not a healthy product at all, due to its high content in sugar and in salt. In addition, due to the intensity of its flavor and the stimuli it produces, it is difficult to moderate its consumption, that is, once you start, you can no longer stop. And that is a caloric bomb.
Did you think that quicos are a dried fruit? Well, no. Although they are located in the section of dried fruit, they are corn kernels, very toasted or fried, and with salt. And how rich they are, so crispy and salty. It is another of those products that as soon as you open a bag, you have to finish it, so it is better to banish them from our lives. They provide empty calories, an unnecessary dose of salt and also displace healthier food. Better eat some pipes without salt.
Who has not left the festivities of his town with a packet of caramelised? The most common are almonds, coated with very crunchy caramelized sugar. But unfortunately we cannot put them in the group of recommended nuts. We can consider them as a dessert, perhaps, or a very specific whim, but the farther the better. A serving of caramelised (a handful, go), already contains half of the recommended amount of sugar and ten units are more or less 400 kcal.
FRIED AND SALTED DRIED FRUITS
These types of processed nuts are too frequent in supermarkets, although more and more healthy, natural and raw versions are being incorporated. It is true that the fried nuts are very rich, well coated in salt. It is proven by science that we have a preference for crisp textures and tasty flavors, to the point of causing a certain addiction. Now you know why when you start you can’t stop. These types of products carry an unsuitable amount of salt, in addition to saturated fats.
M & Ms
Definitely M & Ms do not count as dried fruit, although they have a peanut inside. In any case, peanuts are classified in the legume category, although their characteristics are more reminiscent of a dried fruit than a legume. These sweets are dead, but they are of the insane products in the supermarket, with levels of sugar and fats not recommended. In addition, it is known that they manage to stimulate certain areas of the brain that drive us to want to eat more, as if A drug concerned.
