tired of eating the same fats???
guys i hear this non-sense from people who say they get tired of their fats….
yea, i’d be tired of them too if i ate them everyday for months on end…
you have to be creative and cycle through different foods.. keeping yourself PSYCHOLOGICALLY on track with your diet…
so for those of you scarfing pb and almond butter all the time… switch up to something ur really gonna love
did u guys ever wonder why its so hard to stop eating sunflower seeds?? how about cracking a peanut shell and eating the peanuts??
notice how these foods make you work a little bit.. through their shells.. for their nutrients??
our brains LOVE THIS STUFF…. your brain rewards you for the work you put out.. and it just tastes better… also it makes you feel full because signals are being sent that your eating, but not eating alot at a time.. thx to having to work through the shell..
pistachios are the forgotten efa’s…… people dont think pistachio when they think efa.. but we’re talking about a great fat source here…
they’re low in calories.. so you can eat more of them and feel fuller, longer.. great stuff if your cutting.. or about to go to sleep at night..
In research at Pennsylvania State University, pistachios in particular significantly reduced levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) while increasing antioxidant levels in the serum of volunteers. In rats, consumption of pistachios as 20% of daily caloric intake increased beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol) without lowering LDL cholesterol, and while reducing LDL oxidation.
Human studies have shown that 32-63 grams per day of pistachio nut can significantly elevate plasma levels of lutein, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and gamma-tocopherol.
In December 2008, Dr. James Painter, a behavioral eating expert professor and chair of School of Family and Consumer Sciences at Eastern Illinois University, described the Pistachio Principle. The Pistachio Principle describes methods of “fooling” one’s body into eating less. One example used is that the act of de-shelling and eating pistachios one by one slows one’s consumption allowing one to feel full faster after having eaten less.
