Are you looking to super charge your weight loss? Well.... we are about to reveal the best kept secret to help you kick that fat into next year!
Lets talk pulses...
Pulses are part of the Legume 'family' . Think Peas, beans, chickpeas and lentils and in a nutshell, they are super good for you.
Rich in B vitamins & fibre, they can help contribute to your metabolism, can stabilise your blood sugar (great for those who need to watch their insulin levels due to diabetes) and can also help reduce your cholesterol levels (as part of a calorie controlled diet).
Ok Ok but all this talk of B vitamins and fibre. How does that help my body?
Aha! Here's the technical bit.
Fibre is amazing for so many reasons. We all need fibre to help with constipation but also it can contribute to a slow and steady energy release that will help to give your body energy throughout the day.
B-Vitamins are a group of vitamins so we have
B1 - Thiamine, B2 - Riboflavin, B3 - Niacin, B5 - Pantothenic acid, B6 -Pyridoxine, B7 - Biotin, B8 - Inositol, B9 - Folic acid, B12 - Cyancocobalamin
Now. This may sound like a lot of gobbledeegoop but individually, they help our body on so many ways including:
anti-bodies, brain function, circulation, healthy skin, stabilising hormone levels, cell growth, metabolism, stamina, aide digestion, prevent anaemia, strengthens immunity amongst many other benefits.
Before you go off to fill your shopping trolley with chickpeas, it's important for me to state that these need to be eaten regularly to see benefits but if you are already on a healthy eating weight loss plan, it certainly helps to remember that pulses really do have the power
