This is a fascinating view into the science of nutrition - how nuts help with weight control.  In this video, Dr. Ann explains how nuts, which are high in good fats, actually contribute to weight control.

Here's how:

1. Food structure: the fat calories in nuts are "walled off" in fiber, so you don't absorb them all.

2. Ileal Break: undigested nutrients can activate the “ileal brake,” a combination of effects influencing digestive process and ingestive behavior - making you feel full. 

Dr. Ann's nut weight control video is only 8 minutes, and it's full of useful info, well worth your time.
