Only 28 Pistachios help dieters & diabetics!!!!!! There is a unsaturated kind of fat found in pistachios, pistachios offer lots of hunger-curbing protein and fiber which helps dieters loss more weight and diabetics to stabilize blood sugar if they eat 28 pistachios after a meal.
I eat a cup of broth-based soup with a little protein in it before my afternoon and evening meals. It really helps me feel satiated faster and keeps me from going back for seconds on more caloric items. For supreme convenience I make a big batch of soup on Sundays and freeze it in single-serving containers for the week.
Soup ideas include garden veggie, chicken and barley, escarole and spicy turkey sausage, or tofu tom yum.
