We know almonds taste great and they're chock-full of protein and healthy fats. But can nuts actually help with weight loss?

杏仁美味,富含蛋白质和健康脂肪。那么坚果(杏仁)是否真的有助于减肥?

The most common claim about almonds as a weight-loss tool is that they're satiating, meaning they can prevent overeating.

大多数人认为杏仁有助于减肥,主要得益于其产生的饱腹感。也就意味着能抑制过量饮食。

A study found that among dieters, those who supplemented their diets with almonds lost more weight than those who supplemented their diets with complex carbs.

研究发现,比起复合碳水化合物,饮食中附加杏仁能让节食者减掉更多重量。

And this study found that subjects who snacked on almonds every day didn't gain any weight, even though they consumed hundreds of extra calories daily from the almonds.

同一项研究还表明,尽管参与实验的人每天通过杏仁摄入大量额外的卡路里,但他们的体重并没有因此增加。

The scientists behind the study believe that's because the almonds kept them from feeling hungry between meals.  

研究背后的科学家们认为杏仁能够让人在三餐之间不感觉饿。

Another possible reason almonds may be good for weight loss? Research has revealed that not all of almonds' calories are absorbed by the body. Scientists believe that almonds may actually contain about 20-30 percent fewer calories than nutritional labels indicate.

杏仁帮助减肥的另外一个原因是:研究发现杏仁产生的热量并非全都被身体吸收。科学家认为 ,杏仁实际的热量,比包装上标注的热量要少20%~30%,

But don't outweigh the benefits of almonds by eating too many of them.

当然杏仁也别吃太多,效果会适得其反。

The best way to use almonds as part of a weight-loss plan is to incorporate them into your meals and snacks in moderation.

利用杏仁减肥的最好方式是把适量的杏仁加入正餐或者零食。

Carry a 100-calorie pack of almonds in your bag and whenever a snack attack hits, eat them instead of grabbing something from the vending machine. [An ounce of almonds (about 23 nuts) has around 160 calories]

包里带上100卡路里的杏仁,特别想吃零食的时候,不要去吃那些自动售卖机里的零食。【一盎司杏仁(约23粒)大约有160卡路里】

You'll be amazed at how full almonds make you feel. Just remember to replace other snack food with almonds.  Don't eat them in addition to everything else you'd eat in a day.

杏仁产生的饱腹感会让你感到意外。不过得记住,只能用杏仁去代替其他的零食,不要把杏仁作为额外的零食。
