Dieters have long viewed nuts as the enemy. Sure, they're high in fat and calories - but eaten in moderation (2 tablespoons daily), nuts can do wonders. By adding a bit of fat to a fat-free meal like cereal and skim milk, nuts can slow down the emptying of your stomach, making you feel fuller longer. In addition, nuts may suppress the appetite longer than other fatty foods do. According to a study from Arizona State University, people who spread peanut butter on their morning bagel felt less hungry hours later than those who ate a buttered bagel with the same number of calories. Buy nuts roasted and unsalted for big flavor without the sodium.
