It sounds too good to be true but Hawaiian Macadamia nuts can actually help with your diet. Macadamia nuts are an all natural low carb snack, and adhere strictly to the Atkins diet. It is cholesterol free and high in monounsaturated "good fat" at 80%, higher than olive oil at 74%, and canola oil at 58%. Research now suggests that monounsaturated fat helps reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, by lowering harmful LDL cholesterol levels.
Dr. Oz from the Oprah Show said that nuts are his special favorite food because they are rich in healthy oils, have some fiber and lots of energy. "A half-hour before dinner, I'll throw some nuts in my mouth to drive my ghrelin levels down. Ghrelin is the body chemical that makes your stomach turn, and by toning that down you can avoid being famished at dinner and overeating." (Healthy Living Magazine volume 11 number 3)
