    Almonds are good, and peanuts actually seem to work pretty well for me.

    An old post, but I had noticed early in my journey, this link


    A concern of mine, was IF diabetes can damage our organs and extremities, couldn't it also affect our brain.

    Having had personal experience of a loved one with Alzheimer's, that bothered me enough to follow any leads..

    So here seems an appropriate place to just post the link that made me think.

    The link covers a large swathe of supposed benefits, but no 7 was the kicker for me, so I bought into it.

    Besides, I like Brazil nuts, they offer a nice crunchy snack & taste great

    I have 2 most morning as I head out to work

    I noted the advice & benefits.
    But do realise another may have read otherwise.

    I post for information purposes only.

    For most of the other posts, Id agree, nuts, love em.
    Pistachio particularly..but ones NEVER enough :arghh::arghh::arghh:.

    I too get spiked by too many of most kinds, but I certainly agree.

    A small handful of nuts, i find, fills me up way more then I expected.

    A point I took early on was sometimes we're not really hungry, we just think we are.

    So those moments we should, as I remember it being described, as "Salute our hunger" with a glass of water, and if hungry 30 minutes later THEN eat.

    I find the same happens for me, with nuts.
    Eat & wait..and I find any hunger goes away & I feel refuelled for a good while.

    Same for everyone ?
    Who knows :)

    Maybe worth a go to find out.
