Drop Pounds With Chickpeas


Chickpea Casserole

Chickpeas just might be the latest it-food for healthy weight loss. Results of a study published in the journal  Appetite, showed that participantswho ate a half cup of chickpeas (an amount that contains six grams of fiber and seven grams of protein) daily consumed fewer calories from high fat, low fiber foods.

Also known as Bengal gram, garbanzo beans, Egyptian peas or Kabuli Chana, this versatile legume helps you feel fuller longer, making you less likely to snack throughout the day. Here are few favorite ways to enjoy chickpeas:

  • Mix a handful in a salad
  • Add them to a veggie stew
  • Toss them with a bit of olive oil and spices and roast them in the oven
  • Smash them up with some avocado and enjoy in a sandwich or wrap
  • Add them to your favorite pasta dish

They're also potent antioxidants that provide an array of benefits including regulating your blood sugar, digestive tract support and heart health.

Wonderful program and wonderful counseling! I hadn't had any successful weight loss in other programs until I joined MRC. If you're having problems with stubborn weight loss this is the place to go. But remember if you don't follow the program as instructed you won't get the results you want.
