Sister said: Peanuts are delicious.

Brother said: Peanuts can extract oil.

After replacing the corresponding 500 kilocalories with peanuts, the subjects’ weight did not increase, but their basal metabolic rate increased.

The possible reason is that peanuts have a strong sense of satiety, a certain amount of dietary fiber, and a relatively slow digestion speed. After eating peanuts, it is less easy to go greedy and eat more other foods.

A study from Harvard University’s diet survey of 51,188 women also showed that:
