Snacking is one of the hardest impulses to deal with. That “I need some munchies” impulse can arise for so many reasons and at any time. Reasons are emotional and physical and one of the most common is that your last meal wasn’t satisfying enough and didn’t keep you full for as long as you thought it would. There are foods that will keep you fuller for longer than others, so include them in your meals or reach for them when the munchies come a-screaming (you need less of them than other snack choices).
Almonds are one of the best foods that keep you full. They are full of vitamin E, magnesium and monounsaturated fats, which have all been proven to increase the body’s sense of fullness and well being. Compared to derivatives such as almond flour, almond butter and almond oil, it has been discovered that whole almonds are head and shoulders above in terms of making you feel fuller for longer.
