Legumes Aid Weight Management

on June 11, 2017


Beans, lentils, chickpeas, and other legumes aid weight management, according to a meta-analysis published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers reviewed 21 articles that encompassed 940 overweight or obese participants on the effects of legume consumption on body weight, body fat, and waist circumference. A daily serving of beans resulted in about half a pound lost after six weeks, compared with those who did not consume a daily serving of legumes. Legumes are high in fiber and protein and increase satiety with fewer calories.
