“I started out with the goal of eating better to reduce my cholesterol and to make my diabetes easier to deal with. I’ve been really committed to my health, and an added bonus has been that I’ve lost weight. Snacks like this one make it easier!!” Sherry L.
A Note from Dr. B:
Nuts contain a type of fat that is good for your heart and make a a great snack if you keep an eye on portion size. As long as you keep the total amount of fat you eat low and keep an eye on portion sizes, you can also combine nuts with whole-grain cereal and low-fat popcorn.
