A big new study showed that over four years, increased amounts of different foods led to different outcomes on the scale. A Sample:

 Nuts vs. French Fries

Nuts;

-take longer to chew,

-contain fat and fiber that need more time to digest.

-Your stomach stays fuller, and you feel satisfied longer…

-so you eat less at your next meal.

French Fries;

-cooked starch is quickly broken down

-causes spike in sugar, or glucose, in the blood stream

-The body secretes Insulin leading to hunger signals…

-so you eat more at your next meal.

So, by consuming Nuts you can loose an average of 0.57 lbs. While French Fries help you gain an average of 3.35 lbs.
