 A previous study at the University of Pennsylvania showed that people who consumed 42 grams of walnuts a day notice a decrease in the level of fat in their body and thus became thinner.

 Nuts contain significant amounts of protein and also contain fat, but they are harmless fats it contribute to the fight against flatulence.
