Secrets of Success

Research has shown that people who eat nut butters often weigh less than those who shun them. It's likely that the combination of protein, fat, and fiber keeps you full, so you'll eat less overall. Whole nuts are effective, too: Purdue University researchers found that people who added peanuts to their diet for 19 weeks boosted the amount of calories they burned at rest by 11 percent. Why? The unsaturated fat in peanuts and nut butters burns faster than other fats.
