    Could Wiggy have been correct?

    Want to get rid of your muffin top have shapelier legs? Eat a daily handful of almonds
    • Eating 42g (1.5oz) of almonds a day can reduce the risk of an early death
    • This was compared to a banana muffin with the same calories as the nuts
    • Daily handful helped reduce belly fat, waist circumference and leg fat
    • Almonds also found to lower cholesterol, lowering heart disease risk

    Almonds are great, but Wiggy is still fat. He needs to cut his portion in half.

    weird almond facts.

    -In Christian tradition, the almond branches are used as a symbol of the Virgin Birth of Jesus. If you pay attention, you’ll notice that paintings of this scene often include almond branches encircling the baby Jesus.

    -Almonds are mentioned ten times in the Bible. According to tradition, if the Israelites followed the Lord, the almond trees would give forth sweet almonds, but if they forsook the Lord their God, the trees would give forth bitter almonds.

    an almond and a spoon full of fish (unbreaded) is all he gets for dinner.

    I eat almonds everday. I love them and they're very healthy.

    I also love salmon and most the other food Howard likes.



    the difference is I also like pizza and beer and chicken wings, sometimes a little too much

    Depends who's "hand" is the handful. If his big dopey wife is dolling out the handfuls, he's getting enough to fill a catchers mitt.

    I'm confused. The study doesn't indicate how many portions of almonds are in a handful.

    According to the article, "this study was funded by the Almond Board of California" - quite a shocker that they found out almonds are the healthier alternative.

    Good catch! That's straight of the Howard Stern Show Sponsor Handbook. "Snapple is so great, Robin."
