Every Time I Looked in the Mirror, I Made a Vow to get Rid of That “Spare Tire” I was Carrying Around With Me, Finally it was a Heart Attack That Made Me Actually Do Something About it…
“When I Saw This Report, I Was In Shock! I Mean, You Would Have to Be NUTS, Not to Try This Sensational Diet…”
In a study of 101 overweight people at a Boston Hospital, one group had their fat intake limited to 20% of their daily caloric intake, while the other group got 35% of their daily calories from the “good” fat.
Both groups lost about 11pounds in 6 weeks, but the dieters on the peanut butter, stuck it out longer and maintained their weight for 18 months. When asked why they dropped out or stayed, the answer was “taste”. The dieters using the peanut butter diet, felt better, because of taste.
Another surprise is that in a test done at a Pennsylvania University, showed that a peanut butter diet, lowered heart disease risk by 21%, while a very low fat diet only lowered risk by only 12%.
Doralene Davis, of Boston, Massachusetts, is living proof that this type of diet works. She was able to lose about 50 pounds and kept it off for over 2 and a half years. She says,
Despite decades of advice to the public to decrease total fat consumption, the incidence of obesity is at epidemic levels in the U.S. and many other developed nations. The Center for Disease Control, (CDC) estimates that over 60% of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese.
Both overweight and obesity are associated with major chronic illness, including hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, certain forms of cancer and all can cause mortality.
Beside its abundance of “good” fat, that helps lower LDL and total cholesterol, by up to 14%, research published in the journal “Nutrition and Cancer” have found that peanuts and peanut butter contain phytosterol beta-sitosterol (SIT), which has been shown to inhibit cancer growth and protect against heart disease. SIT may protect against colon, prostate and breast cancer.
And to top it off, peanuts contain Vitamin E, folate, potassium, magnesium, zinc and fiber, which promote a healthy lifestyle and benefit health.
