The most frequent health condition linked to Cardiovascular Disease Is Dyslipidemia (CVD). This study showed how walnut consumption affected dyslipidemia patients when combined with a low-calorie diet and lifestyle modifications. A subsample of 120 people was chosen at random for intervention and divided into control (n=60) and experimental (n=60). Baseline blood lipid parameters and anthropometric measurements were assessed in both groups.A significant reduction in body weight (5.4%) and BMI (4.0%) of the experimental group was observed when compared to the control group (1.9% and 2.1%). However, for all parameters, there was a statistically significant (p<0.05) difference between pre-test and post-test in the experimental group, but non-significant (p>0.05) in the control group. Total cholesterol (11.5%), LDL cholesterol (15.3%), triglycerides (11.2%), VLDL cholesterol (9.0%), and enhanced HDL cholesterol (6.0%) were all significantly lower (p<0.05) in the experimental group.

Practical applications 

This study showed that consuming 30g of walnuts per day and changing one's lifestyle can improve blood lipid profiles and help people lose weight. http://dx.doi.org/10.24966/FSN-1076/100129
