Is eating daily French fries good for health or almonds?
This is the question that was studied in a study to find out the answer, during which 107 people were fed French fries daily while 58 people were fed the same amount of calories based almonds.
Surprisingly, at the end of the study, it was discovered that there was no significant difference in the total amount of body fat in either group or on an empty stomach and blood glucose level.
The study, published in the medical journal American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that people who ate French fries gained a little more body weight, but there was no significant difference.
People in this group gained an average of 0.49 kg, while those who ate almonds had one tenth of a kilogram.
Research from the Indiana University School of Public Health in the US states that if you like almonds, eat them, if you like potatoes, enjoy them, but avoid eating too much of both.
He further said that it is better to make some amount of both of them as part of the body, both of them have some unique advantages.
“Research confirms that every food can keep fit, we can eat almonds, we can also enjoy french fries and cookies, using one diet and avoiding another is not part of a healthy diet,” he said.
But he also said that the results do not mean that it is okay to eat french fries all the time every day. Potatoes are rich in nutrients, but frying them reduces its benefits.
Researchers say that since french fries are often eaten with other high-fat foods, they should not be part of the daily diet, but can be included in the overall balanced diet.
In this study, French fries were compared to almonds because they are known for their energy balance and other positive effects.
In comparison, French fries are a very popular food in the United States. Every American consumes an average of 30 pounds of French fries a year.
