Have Some Peanuts-Lose Some Weight

Recent research discovered that eating peanuts before a meal may reduce blood pressure and weight. Many people don't consume nuts because of the amount of fat and calories they contain, but this study found that eating peanuts before a meal can have these benefits.


According to the findings of new research just published in the international peer-reviewed journal Nutrients, eating some peanuts before meals may aid weight reduction.

A group of researchers concluded that eating salted peanuts twice daily before meals may reduce weight, reduce blood pressure, and improve fasting glucose levels. This indicates that blood sugar levels will stay steady between meals when peanuts are consumed.

How can you research the relationship between consuming peanuts and shedding excess pounds?

Researchers from Texas Tech University and the University of South Australia analyzed data collected on two groups of Australian individuals who were either at moderate or high risk of developing type 2 diabetes during the months of January and December of 2021.

The control group consisted of fifty grownups who chose not to consume nuts or nut butter. The experimental group consisted of 57 grownups who consumed 35 grams of roasted peanuts twice a day, half an hour before each of their three meals.

What did the researchers discover regarding the relationship between eating peanuts and shedding pounds?

The researchers observed that after the study period of six months, both groups saw considerable weight reduction and improvements in their blood sugar levels. However, the group that consumed peanuts had lower blood pressure than the control group.

"Our study found that peanuts, which are high in healthy unsaturated fats, can actually help you lose weight," said the study's author, Kristina Petersen, an assistant professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Texas Tech. "Our study found that peanuts are high in healthy unsaturated fats."

"When people are attempting to lose weight, they often stay away from peanuts because they feel they contain an excessive amount of calories. Peanuts, on the other hand, have a high satiety rating, meaning they make you feel fuller for longer. This is something that may be quite helpful for those who are on a diet to lose weight." Kristina Petersen, who was also the author of the study.

Why are peanuts considered to be so exceptional? There are seven grams of protein, approximately three grams of fiber, and nineteen different vitamins and minerals in a single serving of peanuts. As a consequence of this, the peanut-enriched group obtained an additional 15 grams of protein daily.

Peanuts are indeed healthful, but what about the salt that is used to season them? The researchers observed that the group that consumed lightly salted peanuts had a lower systolic blood pressure than the control group, which was a significant finding.

The researchers offered three different interpretations for this finding, which were as follows:

The researchers offered three different interpretations for this finding, which were as follows:

  1. Lightly salted peanuts are low-sodium food that contains between 90 and 100 milligrams of sodium per serving.
  2. Peanuts have high levels of arginine.
  3. Peanuts contain magnesium.
