The pecan diet is a much-talked-about phenomenon that has people lining up at the supermarket. This new weight loss secret has been featured in many prominent women's magazines, along with an impressive list of celebrities who have admitted to being on this 'pecan only' diet plan to lose those stubborn pounds. So why is everyone so excited about it?

In a nutshell, you eat as many pecans as you like and not gain any weight from them! It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3...well, almost!

What does this diet contain?
Pecans are made up of several different elements, including fats, protein, fiber, and water – all-important nutrients your body needs to function properly – but their fatty acid content makes all the difference. Pecans are rich in healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats (oleic acid) which help to reduce 'bad' LDL cholesterol. They are also full of protein, dietary fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, and calcium that can contribute to weight loss when combined with a balanced diet.

What makes it so great?
Pecans have the lowest calorie content of any nut, just 166 calories per 28 nuts! Pecan fat is up to 80% oleic acid – the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. It is hardly surprising then that scientific research has shown how pecans can boost metabolism by increasing your body's energy expenditure! What's more, pecan nuts are alkaline, so they may even protect you from some cancers.

Pecans have high antioxidant content and can help prevent disease by reducing inflammation, which means they are excellent for heart health and lowering your risk of cancer and arthritis.

Studies have also shown that you may even gain a boost in brain function from eating pecans!

In short, pecans can contribute to weight loss simply by making it easier to maintain a calorie deficit. With all these benefits on offer, it is easy to see why the pecan diet grows worldwide.
