The ONE superfood you need for weight loss

Protein used to be the “golden child” of weight loss foods. Not anymore. Now health experts are focused on two food groups… and if you can get them both in one superfood, then you’ve hit the jackpot. These two food groups are dietary fat and dietary fiber. And when eaten together they’re a powerhouse for weight loss! Which is why today’s email is all about the healthiest 1-2 punch fat-fiber superfood we know of today. Chia seeds. These tiny seeds are loaded with both omega-3 fatty acids as well as insoluble fiber. And for the icing on the cake, they’re also packed with antioxidants, iron, phosphorus, manganese and calcium. According to the Mayo Clinic, dietary fiber in chia seeds can support the digestive system to keep everything “moving” like it should in your gut. It also feeds the good bacteria in your gut, which protects your gut lining and helps eliminate toxins and keep them from entering your bloodstream and making you sick. Chia seeds also control blood sugar levels so extra glucose doesn’t get stored as body fat… And increasing satiety, which means they keep you fuller for longer. (which helps keep pesky cravings at bay, too.) The omega-3s in chia seeds help you to burn fat by reducing belly inflammation… supporting healthy blood sugar levels (giving you a double-defense system against erratic blood glucose)… and supporting healthy metabolism function, so you burn more calories even while you’re resting. So it’s really this simple… Get more chia seeds… just this one superfood… into your diet, and you’ll unlock the incredible benefits of dietary fat and fiber. Now one of MY favorite ways to eat chia seeds is in chia pudding. Chia pudding is typically made by soaking the seeds in water or a plant milk of your choice… It’s important to soak chia seeds before consuming them because they absorb a lot of water and can expand in your system. (Which is a great way to stay hydrated, too). You can also sprinkle chia seeds onto cereal and add them to yogurt. Here’s my favorite chia seed pudding recipe that’s been a go-to dessert whenever I have a sweet tooth but want to make sure I don’t expand the ol’ waistline.
