In-Shell Pistachio Snacking Slows Consumption, Cuts Calorie Intake

July 1, 2011: 11:29 AM EST
Snacking on in-shell pistachios helps curb consumption and decrease calorie intake, making it a healthful way to lose weight, according to two U.S. studies. In one study, participants who ate in-shell pistachios consumed 41 percent fewer calories compared to those who consumed shelled pistachios. In the second study, pistachio nut shells were found to provide important “visual cues” about eating that translate into lower caloric intake. The studies suggest that in-shell pistachios, which are one of the lowest calorie nuts, are a practical, everyday snack for weight management. “In-shell pistachios are the original ‘slow food,’ researchers said. “Choosing in-shell pistachios instead of shelled nuts is a simple way to decrease calorie consumption without restriction.”
