Five Foods to Suppress Hunger – #3 Pine Nuts

  • Pine nuts are a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids which cause your body to secrete two hormones that suppress hunger (tell the brain that the stomach is full) – cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1).
  • One study showed that women who ate pine nuts experienced 29% LESS hunger and this effect lasted for up to four hours. These women ate fewer calories throughout the day.
  • Eat a shot glass full of pine nuts daily to help suppress hunger.
  • Pine nuts also contain the highest protein content of any nut.
