Today Is National Peanut Butter And Jelly Day

Peanut Butter Good For Weight Loss: A study by the Harvard School of Public Health reveals that peanut butter is good for weight loss

Nutritionist Sophie Dylan tells The Sun; ''It’s true, nuts are a high fat, calorie-dense addition to any meal or snack. However, to villainise nuts would be to ignore the multiple benefits of including healthy dietary fats in our diet. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, such as those found in nuts, help to lower total cholesterol (and LDL), whilst increasing HDL (good cholesterol), and intake has been shown to aid with weight-loss and the reduction in body fat.''
