DESCRIPTION: Finally there’s a solution to the mystery of why nuts don’t seem to make people gain weight. It appears to be a combination of factors including a boost to our metabolism, which results in us burning more of our own fat stores. This is the fifth of a seven-part video series on the fascinating phenomenon of the mystery of the missing calories. In other words, why don’t nuts make us fat? I review the balance of evidence in Nuts and Obesity: The Weight of Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-and-obesity-the-weight-of-evidence/) and introduced two theories (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/solving-the-mystery-of-the-missing-calories/) on Monday, both of which were not well supported by a study on peanut butter I detailed in Tuesday’s video (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testing-the-pistachio-principle/). Yesterday’s video-of-the-day, Testing the Dietary Compensation Theory (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testing-the-dietary-compensation-theory/), described an elegant study using walnut smoothies that explained the appetite suppression piece. So if the mystery is now solved, what are the last two videos about? Well today we learned that nuts may boost fat burning in the body, but how? Maybe it’s the arginine (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fat-burning-via-arginine/); maybe it’s the flavonoids (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fat-burning-via-flavonoids/). Stay tuned!
