Weird Bean STOPS Cravings

If you’re struggling with your weight… you’re not alone.

In fact, an astonishing two-thirds of American adults are currently overweight or obese.

Maybe you’ve tried the latest fad diet… some “miracle” pill… or even gone under the knife.

And, chances are: none of it worked.

Because the only way to truly FIGHT obesity is to STOP is at its source.

Now, that’s a reality…

Brand new research shows that a weird-looking bean can help you eat less, feel fuller, and stop cravings.

And it’s delicious to boot!

An exciting new Australian study has revealed that chickpeas combat obesity by helping to reduce unhealthy cravings.

For the study, volunteers were instructed to maintain their usual diets, simply adding four ounces of chickpeas a day.

Almost immediately the volunteers reported eating less, feeling fuller, and consuming fewer high-calorie and processed foods – and all without even trying!

When they stopped eating chickpeas, however, those benefits vanished.

Chickpea consumption simply encourages wiser food choices and promotes weight loss.

How, you ask?

Well, chickpeas boast a long list of secret weapons:

  • Their high content of soluble fiber slows digestion, helps to prevent erratic blood sugar “spikes”, and creates a feeling of fullness.
  • They are rich in protein, which provides that full feeling without the high calorie counts of carbohydrates or fat.
  • Chickpeas help reduce the production of a hormone, called ghrelin, that increases hunger and causes cravings.
  • They contain a fermentable fiber known as raffinose which has prebiotic effects that promote gut health by nurturing beneficial bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract.

Plus, chickpeas are high in beneficial vitamins and minerals like quercetin, caffeic acid, manganese, iron, potassium, zinc, and folate which promote heart health and prevent cardiac issues!

And the best part? It’s incredibly easy to get these benefits!

You can eat raw, organic chickpeas on their own, on top of salads, or in soups.

Or make you own hummus by mashing with lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil.
