Conclusions

“Daily consumption for nuts and seeds was associated with a lower prevalence of NAFLD in non-Mediterranean, US adults, although the benefits seem to be greater in females across all categories of nut and seed consumption groups compared with nonconsumers. Both males and females presented with lower prevalence of NAFLD with intakes of 15–30 g/d.”

Steve Parker, M.D.

PS: The Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet includes nuts and seeds.

  1. Doc, cashew nuts are considered as high cholesterol food, right? Should they be included in this seed and nut category?
