First up on Dr. Joan’s top 20 list? Nuts and seeds. ‘Nuts are very important. A handful is very satiating, and many diet docs recommend eating a quarter cup twice a day – as a morning and afternoon snack if you feel the need,’ explains Dr Joan.

‘Almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, hazelnuts, macadamias, and sunflower seeds can be eaten daily. But watch out for peanuts which are often contaminated with a fungus that can cause liver cancer.

‘Brazil nuts also deserve a special mention. They’re the most concentrated dietary source of the trace element selenium, a critical cofactor for the all-important antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and thioredoxin reductase.’

So, go nuts for nuts! Keep reading to discover more superfoods for weight loss and your health…
