Peanut butter to lose weight

If you love peanut butter, here’s the good news:

Researchers at Purdue University tested various snack foods including unsalted peanuts, other nuts and rice cakes. They found that following a peanut or peanut butter snack, people’s hunger was reduced for two and a half hours. With other snacks hunger returned within half hour. Interestingly, the peanut snackers adjusted their calorie intake spontaneously and did not add extra calories to their daily diet. Furthermore there was a positive change in the fatty-acid profile of the diet reflecting the good-quality fats (monounsaturated) found in the peanuts.
