6. Weight increase
Most research opines that pecans help in weight loss due to their high level of fatty acids. This stimulates the body’s ghrelin hormone and makes you feel full. It ensures that you don’t overeat in the course of any day.
However, the advised serving size of pecan nuts is just one ounce or less, which isn’t very filling. But if you overeat them, you will end up gaining weight rather than lose them. Pecan nuts have high-calorie content and have more energy per ounce than most foods. This is essentially what you crave for after exercising, but it is very easy to overindulge in them and forget about the calories you are taking in.
