Chia Seeds Weight Loss Tips
Boost Your Energy Levels: All the nutrients in Chia seeds can boost your health and your energy levels. Having more energy will help you in you if you are dieting because you will feel more inclined to take exercise. The more exercise you take, the more your energy levels are boosted and your base or resting metabolic rate will be increased too, helping you to burn more calories even when you are not exercising!
Avoid Those Cravings: Chia will also help you stay feeling fuller between meals. Not only because of the higher fiber content but also because mixing it with liquid as in the Chia Pudding recipe above, will produce a gel which slows down the absorption of carbohydrates in your digestive system. This not only keeps you feeling full, but it helps to avoid those cravings for sweet, sugary snacks, by evening out your blood sugar levels too.
