Weight loss help.

ACCORDING TO RECENT RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY THE YALE-GRIFFIN PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER, snacking on KIND Fruit & Nut Delight Bars may help with weight control. In the pilot study, 20 overweight adults consumed two KIND Fruit & Nut Delight Bars per day for eight weeks along with their regular diet. The group experienced an average weight loss of 0.6 pounds and a reduction of 0.2 in their BMI, along with lowered blood pressure. As a result of the findings, an expanded follow-up study is now planned.


"Snacking can add calories to the diet, and cause weight gain," says Dr. David L. Katz, the principal investigator, and director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center. "But snacking on wholesome foods can help control appetite and weight, while providing excellent nutrition and displacing less filling foods that contribute empty calories. KIND bars are just that kind of snack food, made principally of nuts and fruits."

Manufactured by New York-based PeaceWorks Holdings, LLC, the brand was awarded the Best New Product Award at Natural Products Expo East in October. For more information, visit
