Eating nuts does not create the calorie intake that you might expect, because 5% to 15% of the calories are not absorbed by the intestinal system. Thatís because the nutsí skin and how well we chew nuts influence digestion. An added bonus: The slow release of calories through the intestinal system leads to prolonged satisfaction.
The difference between obese people and thin people isnít the number of fat cells; itís the size of these cells. You donít make more fat cells the fatter you get; you have the same number of fat cells you had as an adolescent. The only difference is that the fat globules within each cell increase as you store more fat. By the way, muscles work the same way: you donít make more muscle cells; the muscle cells get larger.
