Choosing pistachios in favor of other higher-calorie snacks can help with weight loss goals. The high protein value of pistachios and dietary fiber help you to feel fuller, longer. Increasing satiety while keeping calories low can help reduce unhealthy cravings. Consuming pistachios has resulted in a lower body mass per-person in dietary studies. Some theorize that one factor possibly contributing to pistachios' weight loss properties is that their fat content might not be fully absorbed. In fact, studies have demonstrated the malabsorption of fats from nuts. This is because part of their fat content is stuck within their cell walls, preventing it from being digested in your gut.
