Dr Oz: Almond Butter Speeds Weight Loss

Dr Oz: Heidi Powell's 9-Minute Miracle Workout & Almond Butter Recipe

Chris Powell says that Iodine is an essential nutrient to help up lose weight faster. It can be found in strawberries, shrimp, and seaweed snacks.

    Taking one teaspoon of almond butter seems real conservative, it only adds about 34 calories, 3 grams of fat and 1/3 gram of saturated fat. There is 2/3 gram of protein and 1/3 gram of fiber in one teaspoon of the butter, which wouldn’t seem to make much difference on a daily or annual basis. Spreading one teaspoon on toast seems spartan.

    Did the gentleman mean one tablespoon?

    Thought it would interesting to compare butters made with almonds, peanuts and sesame (tahini) on a tablespoon basis:

    Almond: 98
    Peanut 94
    Sesame 89

    Total Fat and Unsaturated Fat
    Almond has 8.1g and 7.4g (0.7g saturated)
    Peanut has 7.6g and 6.0g (1.6g saturated)
    Sesame has 7.7g and 6.6g (1.1g saturated)

    Almond has 3.4g
    Peanut has 4.0g
    Sesame has 2.6g

    Almond has 1.6g
    Peanut has 1.0g
    Sesame has 1.4g

    Of course, one has to consider other issues such as taste and personal preference, plant sterols, vitamins/minerals and price: 16 ounces of my favorite peanut butter is much less expensive than 16 ounces of almond butter. Interestingly, one of the DrOz shows this past October showcased Tahini (sesame butter) as an important dietary supplement that could help in the effort to turn one’s health around.

  3. Larry Bee says

    Almond butter has some advantages compared to peanut and sesame (tahini) butters, but all three have a number of unique qualities. Personal preference and price also play a part. Back in October the DrOz show identified tahini as an important dietary aid in efforts to improve one’s health (foods that could help one heal).
