Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredPine nuts contain pinolenic acid, a naturally occurring fat that stimulates cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1), both powerful hormones that alert the brain that the stomach is full. In one study, women who consumed pinoleic acid reported a decreased desire to eat and also reduced their food intake by 36%. Eat a shot glass full of pine nuts every day to help suppress hunger. These small nuts also contain the highest protein content of any nut.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
