Almonds are an excellent source of protein, but they may also have significant fat-burning power. Eating almonds every day is associated with greater weight loss and higher fat metabolism (Glatter, 2015). Indeed, eating plenty of almonds may reduce your levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, improve your lipid profile, and target fat burning in your belly area. Try to eat 1.5 ounces of almonds daily — equivalent to a large handful of the nuts or approximately 30 to 35 almonds — to stimulate fat burning. Almonds are high in healthy monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein. In addition to snacking on whole almonds, you can bake with almond flour or add the nuts to a salad for extra crunch.
