Almonds a Healthy Snack Substitute for Dieters

Con artists.
Substituting almonds for less healthy foods could help dieters stick to a calorie-controlled diet, and lower their cholesterol at the same time, researchers say.

"Nuts, and in this case almonds, shouldn't be on the 'do not eat' list, they can be effectively incorporated in a weight loss plan, with the caveat that they have to be portion controlled," said Dr. Gary Foster, who led the study at Temple University in Philadelphia.
Substitute anything "more healthy" for something "less healthy" and what do you get?

(Remember that there are no healthy foods. There is only eating healthily.)

Still, this is a set-up.

Also, note the "portion controlled" part.

That will make just about anything you eat, "healthy."
