Walnuts and LDL in hypercholesterolemic men
Far too often I hear of patients who avoid nuts, olive oil and avacodos because they are “ fattening” or may raise cholesterol. I’ve given up pulling my hair out over this issue. Just because a food has fat in it does not in any way mean that it will end up as adipose tissue. Quite the opposite as yet another study proves. This study compared a walnut-enriched diet to a Mediterranean-type diet and found excellent results. We are starting to see the potential for modification of an excellent dietary pattern (the Mediterranean diet) with the additional of other beneficial foods.
