Walnuts in particular have been shown to help fight heart disease and can improve blood sugar levels.
These healthy fats have been shown to help prevent and slow the progression of conditions like diabetes
and heart disease. Almonds, pistachios and pecans also contain these beneficial fats. Nuts are low in
carbohydrates and high in protein and fat, which makes them good for stabilizing blood sugar. Just be
sure to watch your serving size. A 1/4-cup portion of shelled walnuts clocks in at 164 calories.
