The researchers said that eating at least one ounce of raw and unpeeled nuts such as hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds will help you manage your weight better. Eating nuts increased the levels of serotonin in the brain which reduces the feelings of hunger and is also beneficial to your heart.

Around 42 people took part in the study, led by Cristina Andres-Lacueva, of which 22 people followed a nut rich diet for over 12 weeks while the remaining were told to avoid nuts.

According to the study, published in the American Chemical Society Journal of Proteome Research, those who ate nuts regularly displayed increased levels of serotonin and reduced levels of substances that have been associated with heart disease and inflammation.
