DESCRIPTION: The arginine content of nuts may explain their metabolism boosting effects, though in a list of the top food sources of arginine, nuts don't even make the top ten. This is video #6 in a seven-part series on the fascinating phenomenon of the Mystery of the Missing Calories. I review the balance of evidence of why nuts don't tend to contribute to weight gain in Nuts and Obesity: The Weight of Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-...), introduced two theories on Monday (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/solvi...), both of which were put to the test in a study on peanut butter (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testi...). Then came an elegant study using walnut smoothies (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testi...), followed by the big reveal in yesterday's video-of-the-day (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/testi...). Arginine may indeed explain the thermogenic effect of nuts, but it also might be the flavonoid phytonutrients (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fat-b...), which we'll explore tomorrow. Should one avoid soy protein isolate even though it's such a concentrated source of arginine? Stay tuned—I'm going to cover that when I cover IGF-1 and the cancer growth reversal studies. I offer a sneak peak in my full-length 2012 presentation Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/uproo...).

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fat-b... and he'll try to answer it!
