Question

a. is there any hope for those who like to pack on late night snacks? Does eating nuts (raw almonds, etc.) versus chips (Doritos) and candy (M&Ms) result in less weight gain, measured in ounces? We ran our experiment with the same participants eating before nuts, and after eating chips and candy.
